Fake posting, to get you to send personal information
My Complaint: My name is Nelly, I am looking for a job, and I respond to a nanny posting in two different occasions. And on both time I received a request to send my resume and personal references. I did not know that it was a scam. I respond and received the below email. My computer got hacked a few weeks ago. Again I went to my profile under the sitter.com I applied for nanny job in the local area with a title Experiences nanny wanted, on 11/12/2013 at sitter city. And I got a respond text, to send my personal references Besy [email protected]. I did do that last night, and again I got the same letter that I had got last time. Please see below.
