Nanny/Au pair Scam
|+1 Louisa Luciano I was texted by a woman named \"Emma\" saying her friend needs a babysitter/ someone who can run errands for the family. They claim to live in Australia and are moving to the states on the 17th to the closest suburb to me. She told me she would pay me for my services before they move here by their financial agent. She said she would pay $350 up front with additional expenses added on to the check she would send me. She then asked for my address phone number whether I accepted the offer or not and other information. My best friend received the same messages and text so I thought it was weird right away then when I saw she wanted to give a complete stranger a check.|

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell.
And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can.
So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we
hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
