Trust Tuition Agency aka Trust Tutor (www.trusttutor.com) is a total scam & dishonest company. They post almost daily in Singapore's Straits Times Classified ads under Part Time Jobs, looking for part and full time tuition coordinators to call or go to their scammy website ttaconsult.com. Alot of unexpecting people new to the industry get conned by them. They keep calling people to go to their seminiars. They always trick people into subscribing their dead tutor database and push people to take up unrealistic longer than needed subscriptions. Their other add on services are also not as described they never honour what they promised. Alot of people had lost their money to this scammy company. In contrary to their name, they are not to be trusted and they are a very dishonest, unethical company. I don't think conning money this way from people will make them feel good spending the cheated money. They will lose all the money soon.

From: Lee: SBID #74b71fedfc Posted 07/12/2017

I am another unfortunate victim to fall for this scam. A total of $2461.3 (not including the advertising fees I ve spent for flyers and notice boards) is being accounted for. I was being sweet talked into siging up for a 2 year contract with them without any prior knowledge of additional fees that are incurred for their thumbdrive that contains advertising templates for flyers, and a custom made id tag for $19.90.



Furthermore, I wasn`t expecting that we have to ownself seek for potential students at our own expense. I was given a false promise that there is a growing demand in this market but instead for a period of 1 month plus after putting advertisements on 4 mrt notice boards and distributing flyers for 10 blocks I only managed to get two phone calls from parents. The worst thing is that there is another $55 charge known as a termination fee to stop your account when you decided to pull out from them regardless if you break contract or not.



I was adviced by a close friend of mine that the whole thing is a big scam. First thing first they mentioned its a freelance role. But why do we still need to sign contract and pay a fee? Reason is that they themselves are acting as agents as well instead of employers therefore they probably get their comission from all the fees that they imposed on tuition coordinators. Then the termination fee part is ridiculous as well, the actual practice in the working world is that when you break a contract, you need to pay. But a compulsory termination fee is unheard of.



Bringing back, I am not sure what can be done for now. Was told by my friends and family to make a report to the MOM or Police. Will appreciate if anyone here can advice what legal action can be taken.Thank you.

Regards, Unfortunate undergraduate student

Hey Lee,



I was also a victim myself. I don't think MOM or Police can do anything about it unless you can produce evidence that this whole thing is a scam.



I've already seek legal advice to go to small claims tribunal to ask for a full refund on the subscriptions. But seems like they are already very well prepared in covering up for their unethical practice through the service agreement and they even took videos of us signing the agreement willingly. But anyway, I'm going to try my luck at SCT. So I'm trying to gather more evidence to prove that this is a potential scam.



You can probably do the same or seek advice through legal aid.

Trust Tuition Agency in Singapore received their first complaint on 06/15/2015.

Information about Trust Tuition Agency in Singapore was first submitted to Scambook on Jun 15, 2015. Since then the page has accumulated 4 consumer complaints. On average users reported $26344.00 of damages.



Date Occurred: 02/28/2018
Reported Damages: $2,376.00
Location: 21 Bukit Batok Crescent, Wcega Tower, #15-70, Singapore 658065

After I received a call from Trust tuition staff for joining as a tuition coordinator, I went to the above address on 28 Feb 2018. Mr Joshua, the manager in the company briefed about how much one can earn by working as a tuition coordinator. He told that the company provides both tutor database and student database and we are supposed to do matching, matching only. He bluffed a lot and on the same day, he somehow made me to pay this S$2376.

Then we were asked to come for the training after a week time. Then in the training only, he said only Tutor database is provided and told us some tricks on how to find students on our own. I was very shocked and almost every one else there attended this training were shocked. Because, after the payment made, he told us that only Tutor Database is provided not the student one.

He is such a cheat and making all the other people who joined as Tuition coordinators, cheaters by promising 30% commission for bringing more and more Tuition Coordinators.


Singapore government should not let this kind of Cheaters go easy and make easy money. Do something before they escape.

Reported Damages: $1,000.00
Location: BUKIT BATOK

The owner of this company made me sign 6 mths of tutor database subscription which I initially only want to try for 3 mths which costed me abt SGD600. I paid another SGD250 for printing of flyers & distribution but got no results at all. The distributer is his fathee & he complaint the location is too far. They demanded me to pay another SGD60 to close the account when I want to unsubscribe. Their tutor database is stale & I hatdly find active tutors. I only found one for my assignments. Lousy scamy company. Do not trust them. They make ppl use giro to pay for their subscription.
