“London Nanny” Scam
September 17, 2007 | in Scam Alerts
Below is a sample email from someone posing as a nanny from London England. The scam is that the family sends a certified check to the “travel agency” that will get the nanny a cheaper fare to the US. The Travel Agency does not exist. This scammer went so far as providing references that the family spoke with, however, the family never was able to reach the travel agency by phone.
