Babysitter Scams

Fake check, and he is rushing me to open a bank account


My Complaint: He emailed me about needing a babysitter for his daughter and stuff. He said”i came across your post, I am looking for a baby sitter for my 3 years old daughter, I am coming around with my family for business trip. Would you be interested in becoming a part time baby sitter.” I told him that I was interested in the job. He said” Erika.
Thank you for getting back to me, I do not have any problem with drop off at your place, like I told you we are coming for business trip to Georgia, I contacted you as babysitter/ Nanny for my daughter on sitter site, because I want her to get used to the environment around her and also make new friends, she loves to swim and visit the park around once a while. The main reason why I need someone to get this done for us is because we are expecting our baby boy very soon, and it might be a little bit stressful for my wife and for myself because I have to make sure she is fine and get her to the Hospital for her check up and more, while I am doing all this I don’t want Merinda to feel lonely or bored, our duration is your area would be for 2 months or more, I might understand if you wont be able to get it done for us for 2 month, but for the time we can have you help us get settled and if you can take care of her for that time then that’s fine too.

We will be offering you $300 weekly for 15 hrs a week, I will be offering you more pay because I want you to do the job good with my kid will be needing your services for five hours from (10 am-3 pm or 4 pm-9 pm) for three days in a week or you can schedule a convenient time for you and let me know what time is okay for you to take care of her, I would be needing the service of a caring babysitter / nanny with positive personality to take good care of her on a part time basis moreover I want to be certain you are fit for this position, you will need to prove yourself to be a reliable, honest, and hard working person, you will start working on same day or next day it’s okay if you prefer to be a live-out nanny as I can drop her at your home every time I do not mind or a live-in nanny if you can take care of her in our home. I told him that sound good and that we could meet up at my house to talk about it more in person. After that he started texting me on my cell phone telling me that he was going to send me the payment early so I can do grocery shopping for him and all that and I actually put it on my bank account I told him I didn’t have anything account that I only didn’t cash or check and he keeps bothering me to open a bank account as soon as possible cuz he needs me to open one. I didn’t give him my information you just to be on the safe side cuz I knew there could be a chance that this was a scam.


My Demand: Police to talk with him or so so he won’t steal money from people or scam people.
