I recently joined Sittercity. I thought I had found the right job for me.
I was wrong... It was nothing, but a BIG lie. A lady of the name, Amanda Smith, contacted me being super sweet telling me her father had passed away and she was out of the country for his funeral. Her husband and her thought I'd be the perfect nanny for their son when I received another email with a different name and basically the same story as she sent me.
At that moment I knew something was up. When she finally replied back to me she said they made the decision for me to be their nanny and that they would pay me my first weeks pay now so I don't fall behind on my bills. Right then and there I knew it was a scam. Usually you wait to see if they even show up.
That's exactly what I told her too. I'm still going along with her emails as if I know nothing. But I can't wait to confront her about it. You don't lie about someone passing away.
That's just wrong! I never write bad reviews, but I'm hoping this will help someone in the future. Be super careful of the personal information you reveal. I'm so happy I didn't release anything personal.
I deleted my sittercity account and am sticking with Care.com. I've found a lot of friendly people on there!
I've had a couple of jobs with them. Thanks for reading!
