BEWARE Upfront Job Offers

Posted on by Deborah | in Scam Alerts

The email message below was sent to our general mail box at They are not registered users of the service. Obviously, it is a scam since we are not a nanny with a profile posted on our site.  You will see it is a typical scam email.  They offer the job upfront without interviewing the nanny or even receiving the first reply email.  Again, if you suspect an email is a scam attempt, send it to


I am TERRY MCDONALD C.E.O.  of Drivtee Mining
company AUSTRALIA, I saw your profile and I am very interested in you
being my Daughter (britney)’s Nanny/Au Pair. I will like to hire your service
to take care of Daughter (britney) from  july1st 2006….
I will be needing your care services for my child due to the fact am going on
business trip to my company in Australia by july3rd and will be back by 15th
of july so for this few days i wont be available at home i want my kid to be
with you and i want perfect care for her since she is the only child i have and
i dont joke with her because her mom is late and am the only one taking care
of her and i care alot about her….
She is aged 4years old,I am looking for a  full time  nanny or a pertime nanny
you can live in if you wants to in our residence during this period  and if not i
will make arrangement with someone who will always drop her off on his
way to work and by 8:00am to 6:00pm
I will pay you whatever just for my child to have perfect care and pls do
make her feel at home…and can afford to pay you for any extra hour…
Our au pair should be an outgoing, energetic person, selfpropelling, a 
communicator, independent, responsible, practical, tidy and flexible.In a
family with one young kid it can be busy, so you don’t mind a little bit of
pressure now.With a good sense of humor you’ll manage.She’s intelligent,
She can challenge you with questions, discussion etc, but you think that’s fun.
You need to be intelligent yourself(college or university level) to be able to
help her learn. We are a welcoming and social family; we love to share our
house with other people….
If you would like to stay with my child,you will have your own room and
bathroom, your own tv and vcr, radio/cd and pc with broadband unlimited
internet access and a car for use during your stay with splendid suroundings
 I will make sure you’ll get a home away from home and will do everything to
ensure your au pair adventure will be the unforgettable experience you want
it to be. To me, an au pair is a member of the Family…..
Email me back with all details i need to know(your weekly rate) because this
is my first time of needing this services since i do take her with me to all my
business trip but this time around i will be visit diff countries and attending diff
meetings too so its will definitely be alil diffcult to have her around me.
