Potential Nannies: Be aware that there is a scam that is targeting potential nannies looking for employment through “www.nanny4hire.com”.
The scam: A nanny registers for employment through “www.nanny4hire.com”.
The potential nanny then receives an e-mail from a perspective employer. The employer states that he is moving into the country and that he needs to secure an apartment in the area. The employer hires the nanny and asks her to place the deposit for the apartment and he will subsequently repay her as soon as his company cuts the travel expense check. The nanny sends the deposit check to an unknown third party and never receives a call back from her “new” employer, thus, she gets scammed the deposit money.
Anyone who has fell victim to this scam can contact Detective Bussinelli at 201.529.1000 Extension 218 or mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
