Media investigation "extortion" quote       18 bogus English language tests: Slavery



Project 1:    ​Blackmail and extortion - transnational felony crimes



The United Nations recognizes that migrants and foreign workers are vulnerable persons.  You may be the victim of extortion if an English language tester refuses to supply a Test Report that you have paid for, and offers to sell you a new service to obtain a Test Report. This may apply even if you have signed a contract agreeing to the terms. A language testing company cannot rely on a commercial agreement to justify engaging in blackmail or extortion for financial gain.       Example
