Trusted TEFL reviews scam

Trusted TEFL reviews is a scam review site designed to promote TEFL online pro and deface competitors. It is supposedly run by a woman named “Mia Williams”, but that is Neville and you can see him on the home page recommending both TEFL online pro and Trusted TEFL reviews.

Currently calling himself “Nev Thomas”, but that is likely to change when he finds this

If you start to search Mia Williams you won’t find much about her because she doesn’t exist. The only places that you will find her is where she is trying to promote Trusted TEFL reviews

Don’t be fooled by posts found in Google search like this.

Let’s rephrase this to Trusted TEFL reviews is a scam that you should look out for

Trusted TEFL reviews big lie says…

We are not affiliated in any way with any of the online TEFL/TESOL certification programs listed on this site.”

In fact Trusted TEFL reviews and TEFL online pro are in fact run by the man pictured above. There is no Mia Williams and there is no Paul Murphy.

Both of these sites are hosted on the same website host and both were created within 2 weeks of each other.

It will make sense if you search out the information available online about Neville and his former ITTP TEFL scam. It’s very similar.

TEFL online pro was apparently awarded the Teacher’s choice award on Trusted TEFL reviews. This award was created by Neville.

Mia Williams and Paul Murphy {the head trainer at TEFL Online Pro} do not exist until 2019. There are no LinkedIn profiles, company registrations, bios, pictures, blogs, work history, for either of them.“”

FAKE awards

Is it a coincidence that TEFL online pro won this award 3 years in a row? 2019, 2020, 2021?

No.

It’s easy to win the award when you make it up and give it to yourself.

Is it a coincidence that no other websites besides those owned by Neville (Trusted TEFL reviews & TEFL online pro) mention this award?

If this award was so special you would think that people would surely talk about it right? But the only websites talking about this award are those owned by Neville: Trusted TEFL reviews, TEFL online pro, and the social media profiles he owns.

Is it a coincidence that the only other related sites that mention TEFL online pro’s accreditation are Trusted TEFL reviews and TEFL online pro?

A response to Mia Williams

Below is a quote from TEFL.net.

Mia, You have been asked more than once, I’m asking again;

There’s a rising chorus, from multiple online TEFL courses featured on your site, that your review site –Trusted TEFL Reviews — is completely fake. It is believed that your real purpose for managing the review site is to promote your own TEFL course, TEFL Online Pro.
1. Why were Trusted TEFL Reviews and TEFL Online Pro created in the same month within 10 days of each other?
2. Why were both domains bought from the same internet company?
3. Why did you pay extra to make the websites anonymous? And why were both websites registered in Panama?
4. How come TEFL Online Pro have zero other reviews on the internet?
5. How come you don’t have a LinkedIn or any other Social Media Profile to show that you are in fact a real person?
6. How come the operators of TEFL Online Pro also do not have any proof they exist until 2019? Both of you seem to post all over Quora, but do you actually exist? It almost seems like you are both fabricated. We can’t find either of your businesses in any kind of public registration. You say you’re a real person, and even post on the internet with your ‘real name’, but you don’t exist until 2019.
7. Why did a man named Neville David Thomas claim to be one of the owners of TEFL Online Pro on various Facebook groups, yet he’s not mentioned on TEFL Online Pro’s website? A quick google search of ‘Neville David Thomas TEFL Course’ reveals that this is a man with a decade of experience making fake review sites to promote fake TEFL courses. Readers, don’t take our word for it, just google the name. We imagine that TEFL Online Pro will desperately try to remove these posts from Neville D. Thomas, but there are pictures(internet archives etc)

If you can answer any of the above questions, that would be great.

Why should we not trust you? And why did you put the word in your site name to begin with?
