I'm DISGUSTED that Sittercity allows this 'nasty scam' person to put an ad like this on their site!!!


Thank you. I fell for this fake job. Hopefully, there is a real person out there looking for good help.


Beware of Kathie Ammons I received a text supposedly from her “friend” Tammy who said she needs a sitter. Also Santino De Angelis both scams and can be very dangerous people


I got this same email from this lady! Im dumb and gave her my address just an hour ago, but then I did some research and found this, because it just all sounded fishy to me.

I emailed her back and told her not to send me anything and not to contact me again.

Do I have to worry about anything? Will I be okay if I just don't open the mail if I get sent anything??

Watch out for current nanny job by George B. Its fake and a scam!


My daughter was looking for a job on sitter city also and was just sent a check for $1650 in advance. I have talked to her so she understands this is a scam but it’s just awful that people feel the need to do this.

My daughter was also confronted and she asked me if this was legitimate. I now question the sittercity company itself and its ability to properly vet out bad apples from posting.

They should qualify the people paying. The activity of passing along a check like that is part of some kind of money laundering scam.


My sister-in-law was looking for work on Craiglist and came across this ...we warned her not to send any of her info , that it was a Scam!!! Las Vegas, Nevada
