Beware of Nanny Job Scams on Craigslist

We’ve had a large amount of nannies and babysitters that are registered with us call and tell us that they were almost scammed on Craigslist. It’s always the same story about how a family lures them in and tells them that they will hire them but that the nanny must send them a check and then the family will transfer part of that check back to them. Well, I ran across this news segment that exposes this scam for what it really is.

Please nannies, be careful. Some of my favorite nannies have almost fallen for this scam. If any family asks you to send them money, run!!!

Best,
