It started with a text from a random number saying they received a comment from me on care.com. I was told to email this Louisa and told them that I was referred by Emma.

I sent an email, explaining a little bit about myself. Louisa responded, mentioning that they lived in Australia and was due to move to the states by August 17th. She also explained she had two little boys, one 4 and the other 9, named Alberto and Desmond. She explained that I was to be paid $350 a week for my services and asked for basic information and a confirmation of the job acceptance, so I\'d be forwarded a payment in advance as well as keys to the house to prepare.

Then, I was told that her \"husband\" called someone else to prepare the house instead, however, I was to receive a check in the mail that same day and I was to deduct $350 from my account and send it via MoneyGram to the said person.

I received a check from
\"Regions Bank\" in Minnesota for $4,750.50. By then my mother saw right through this and disposed of the check.

I had given my cell phone number in one of the emails, so the next day I get a call from a Virginia number (571 area code), from a man who claimed to be Louisa\'s husband. I was too sleepy to talk so the conversation was short.
