Have You Received Any Of These Au Pair Scam Letters?


It's the second time that I got a surprise email from my blog's reader. The first one was when I posted about having a Google Wave invite. A reader contacted me that he wants to receive the most coveted Google Wave invite (at least during the time when it was hard to get one but I guess it was overrated since it's too buggy and no one seems to open it anymore).

The most recent email that I got was from a lady from Finland thanking me for posting about the Nicole Edwards Au Pair scam. Here's a copy of her letter that she sent me. I am glad that I was able to save her from being hoodwinked by the Nigerian scammers.

I wasn't able to post a comment on your post about Nicole Edwards so I decided
to send you an email.

I received exactly same message from her in facebook. I answered her and she
answered back again almost asame message which you got too. And she said that
here are some pictures but there weren't any..
My parents were very worried about if she really is who she says she is so I
googled the owen blames and came across with this. SO THANK YOU SO MUCH!
I would propably have been so fool and paid but not after reading this so thanks
again. You saved my money.
By the way I'm from Finland.

I trust people too much :(

Best wishes,
Taina


With that being said, here are some additional au pair scam emails that I've been receiving. Most of these letters are from "families" claiming to be from UK. I assure you the list goes on but here are just some of the au pair scam emails. Be wary and don't just believe in everything that these Nigerian scammers are saying. You know better than believing anyone who claim so much and couldn't even construct a proper letter. Most of these have poorly constructed letters, spelling errors and watch out for the addresses because when you look them up in the Google map, you will either be directed to an intersection or no such address found. If you try to call the numbers that they are providing, you will sure get a deadline. You see, these au pair scammers are just trying to extract some money from you.

Hello,
We are a cheerful, friendly family in london , England.We have two happy and affectionate kids, Jasmine (6) and Aidan (10) who attend the local school between 9 and 3.00 every day. Jasmine likes playing with trains, drawing,playing on the computer and garden swing, and riding his bike. Aidan wants to be a scientist when he grows up, and enjoys playing withLego, art, reading comics, riding around on his scooter and playing with his new Nintendo Wii. We live in a very large modern family house with six bedrooms, three bathrooms, and beautiful views of the River Cam, in a popular family-friendly village right by Cambridge (15-20 minutes cycling ride). We are looking for someone to get the children ready in the morning,prepare and clear up the family's breakfast at about 7.30am, make the beds, and take the children to school, which is about a 1.5km walk away. The au pair would then need to pick them up at 3.00 and look after them until we get home. We might ask the au pair to babysit 1-2 evenings a week. We have a really great cleaner, so there wouldn't be any heavy housework. There is a bit of light cleaning and laundry which would take about 90 minutes a day in total. There would be plenty of time free in the day to go to language school, and there are a lot of good ones in the area.We will encourage and assist you to find suitable english classes (such as Cambridge Certificate) or other courses that you might be interested in so you feel that while you stay with us you develop and progress with your skills and education. Living arrangements: The au pair would have her own room, which is huge, and has a double bed, with sitting area and TV/DVD/Video/Hifi. There is wireless broadband internet in the house. It has a lovely view of Ely Cathedral to the North out of the big window. You can even use one of our cars all weekend! Also 2 weeks are paid holiday during Christmas/New Year plus another 2 weeks during the year. We are looking for someone with a good sense of humour.If you love children and could help us provide a loving environment combining routine and fun for the children then. we would like to welcome you to our family as a friend and a big sister to our kids.Housework is not an important part of the aupair job, being part of our family and helping our children develop and learn is the main thing. We are really flexible. Working hours: 07.30 to 09.00 and 1500 to 1900 Plus about 60-90 minutes of housework a day to fit in with the au pair's schedule. Some Friday afternoons off. Total 25-30 hours a week Benefits : We will be paying you £2000 pounds sterling for every four weeks. A pocket money of £250 pounds per week. And you will also be having your own car.We would send you a flight ticket to your door step, if you are intrested working with our family and a return ticket back to your country. Other information: The au pair would be part of the family, and we certainly don't expect a servant! We have had lots of au pairs in the past, and we are used to helping people get to know the area and make friends. Sandra james family Barlby Road, North Kensington, London W10 6BL

Those are just some of the sample emails that you might get from Nigerian au pair scammers. Be careful not to believe in whatever they say. Be sure to verify all the information that they are giving by searching their addresses in the Google map, calling the number that they gave you. They assume that you do not have access to these information but if you look up their address in the Google map, either the address could not be found or you will see an intersection. If you call the number, it is either a dead line or no answer. There had been a lot of au pair scams that scattered in the internet lately but in order to prevent yourself from being hoodwinked, coordinate with the authorized local au pair agencies. Most of these au pair scammers claim that they are from the United Kingdom (UK) and would ask you to contact their immigration lawyer and the lawyer would then ask you for some amount of money as your contribution. Do not send any amount of money to anyone! If you have received any of these letters, kindly leave your comments below to warn others. Let us all fight these au pair scammers.


Do you find the post informative, fun and helpful? Then what about buying me a drink?

Next Scam Email:

Subject: Contract Letter and Travel Instructions

The Certificate of Eligibility would be issued to you with your Appointment Reference Number and Interview Date to visit the nearest UK Embassy in your country for Entry approval.

You are to sign the contract after going through it and send a scanned copy via email indicating your intended travel date (For Flight Booking which we shall pay for) , to the UK Home Office in charge of applications for Certificate of Eligibility for their records and advice to us:

UK Home Office, Border Agency,

United Kingdom
Email: ukba.homeoffice@cortado.co.uk

Thanks for sharing the letter. I hope that people who would receive such letter would not easily fall into believing such claims. If you carefully read their letters, most of them are poorly constructed sentences and when they try to call you (this may help them convince you that they're authentic), you could barely hear. I got a call from some lady who claims she's from UK and trust me, I would know a British from some bogus national (since I work in a call center calling for UK and Australasia).

I really hope that people wouldn't easily believe in these scam letters since the UK embassy has long banned the acceptance of au pairs in their country.

I got a mail today from the "Crusenberys" (the misspelled surname was the first thing making me suspicious) and they put the e-mail of the "Buttons" (buttonsfamily@london.com) in their mail too, which immediately seemed weird to me… and the link to their profile on AuPair.com wouldn't work neither. But anyway I answered them.
Just got the second message (the exact same as above) and when I saw 500£ per week I was damn sure this is just a fake!!
While googeling the fake hotel the Crusenbery was apparently working at, address, name etc I came across your blog, and oh well here I am now thanking you for giving me the final prove it's just a scam!
Thanks :D


oh btw. doesn't it seem all those fakes come from aupair.com?? that means they're kinda involved with this site or at least must have an account there... so i reckon the best thing would be using an other scamming-free au pair site!

and how do you know their from nigeria? lol did they confess or what? :)

Jonha @ Happiness said...

Hi Lee,

I've read an article in boingboing.net or something like that wherein they interviewed a Nigerian who has been doing the scamming and would you believe that they have different levels of scamming? The first level sends it out to prospective victims, second level answers the queries when someone replies and third, negotiates (like the agency they're referring you to) then so on. When you Google scams, Nigerians are the ones that show up in the results! Besides they're the only ones who have crooked English like the ones we've been receiving. I've been receiving new ones and will be posting them soon! Also, if you check out my Nicole Edwards post, you will see how I caught them, lol. Pretty crazy encounter but definitely worth sharing.

Lee H. said...

Yeah, I got through your other post and was like WTF?? so they to this on a "high professional" level... kinda sad though, It's probably a sort of Mafia thing and the Nigerians won't even get paid lol
But on the other hand they do it REALLY bad so probably isnt't any mastermind behind all that, hmmm...

anyway, I keep writing to "Bill Crusenbery" to see what they want to do me next and then I'll post it here if you like! :D

Jonha @ Happiness said...

Hi Lee,

The only way for us to prevent getting more people fooled is to spread to word so it would be great if you keep on talking to these people and share with us their latest tactics. I am sure a lot of people would benefit from your warnings. Also, I agree about this sort of pyramid scamming that the Nigerians are just being used by some higher syndicates or group of people. Though I pity and wish they have better/legal opportunities, I pity those simple people who only wanted to take advantage of the au pair program but get fooled by these scammers.

Jonha @ Happiness said...

I would like to thank everyone who posted the latest emails that they've been receiving from the scammers. You will know that they are indeed scammers because for one, UK no longer accepts au pairs. http://jonhappiness.blogspot.com/2010/04/au-pair-visa-for-filipinos-to-go-to-uk.html

Also, check out my other post about an au pair scam and how I caught them.

http://jonhappiness.blogspot.com/2010/01/nicole-edwards-au-pair-scam.html

If I've helped you in any way, feel free to pay it forward. That means feel free to warn others by linking to this site, adding letters that you've received. I would really appreciate you all adding your comments so that more and more people would be warned.

Best Regards,

We will require you to take care of Clinton for about 30hrs a week. You will have weekends free and we will pay you £500 per week pocket money which we will give to you every Friday.

Our residence is very open and near the city and there are other au pairs close by.

Yours sincerely

Mr Crusenbery Bill

Jonha @ Happiness said...

Hi cperart,

Here's what they usually do with the documents that they can get. They use (or make necessary modifications for their specific purposes) and then send it as "proofs" to other people that they would like to hoodwink. For example, if you sent them your passport number, they could probably steal your identity though there are some who said that they can't do that. Well, they could still use your name or something like that, in some of their operations, if they find it useful. Perhaps some of the photos that they sent as their "family picture" could be from other people whom they fooled to send them information too. We just never know. Be careful next time. :)

Aclapi said...

I'm French, I have received exactly the same mails from "Crusenbery family" and the same contract that I should return as soon as possible ! But I won't !!! thanks to your blog !!!

I have been in contact with James Benson too ! an other scam...

Jonha @ Happiness said...

Hi Lee,

Thanks for playing along with the Crusenberys,lol. You did a great job in probing and they obviously didn't succeed in proving their identity, because after all, they have fake ones.

There's a pattern in their letters and they all seem to be generic emails that they send in levels that I mentioned. That someone takes care of the answering, another for sending the contact, and must be someone else for collecting. I wouldn't be surprised that there's just one group or perhaps a couple, that sends out all the emails we've been receiving from various email addresses.

I hope more and more people like you would be alert and don't just easily believe in anything anyone would say in the emails. Read the emails carefully because they're poorly written and what they're offering are simply unbelievable and not feasible.

Thanks so much for sharing the contents of your conversation Lee. I really appreciate your efforts in helping me spread the word. :)

Jonha @ Happiness said...

Lee,

They clearly are making a lot of mistakes now, forgetting whose email account they're logged into thus sending emails through wrong email addresses. Don't be surprised to get an email from Dr. Button, Mr. Button or whosoever, lol.

@Aclapi

It would be great if you'd provide us with James Benson's email address and the contents of the email as to warn others. :)

jajni said...

Thanks, the blog saved me :)

I got a letter from the Crusenbery family as well, but this time they called them the Brooklyn Family. We've started mailing last saturday and they sent me their contract today. I was suspicious as I knew Ł500/week + pocket money is a warning sign. So I googled the number of their "contract" and ended up on this site... Oh, and they changed their phone number during these days!

Lee H. said...

No worries Jonha, I'm glad if can help warning some of my fellow au pairs :)

I just wonder what would have been their next step... I mean if I signed the contract? The contract is obviously a fake one, it might help them to collect personal information but how are they actually getting money out of the au pairs?

Anyways, the "Crusenberys" don't reply (of course) anymore but I got a mail from a new family (from todayc@fsg406.com).
They didn't mention any name this time.

Subject : Assignment in Whitefish, Montana USA
Message : Lee, I apologize for my delayed response to your message. I am delighted that you are interested in corresponding further on this matter. I am looking for an intelligent, capable, versatile, individual. Your profile seems to suggest that you poses these qualities. I also need someone who is a hard worker and who has a fair amount of ambition when it comes to improving themselves and maturing as a human being. I strive to surround myself with people who have potential because real success and progress is achieved collectively. I am a business man and am on the move constantly. I need a person who can care for Isabella when she is not in school and then, if you are so inclined, help me with other details of my life that could need attention. This position is probably different than what most au pair positions consist of because there is opportunity for growth; i.e.; you set your own limits as to the amount of work or participation. I will say that some travel would be necessary at times and an interest in the outdoors would be a plus (in the winter we ski/snowboard and in the summer we hike, fish, water ski, wake board, wake surf, dive, and enjoy the sun). There is so much that this situation could bring to the right person. Lets talk further if you are interested.

It's quite similar to the others, isn't it? But they're making progresses, this time they put my actual name in it and didn't address me just as "dear au pair" lol

yea i have received the same emails with you guys.the fact was that i was wasting my time coz we had a constant email and with someone pretending who works in in the UK home office. later i found out that the Uk embassy ddnt accept au pair from philipines.

i also question the reliability of the western union money gram and etc. coz there they want me to send the money. my relatives will be the one to send to my name and the pay out location is london. they dd it several times already. how come they dont have any actions on false recepient.

what a world of scammers. so be cautious guys. i want those people get caught.

However i have only 2 kids 4yrs old and 2 years old, I am looking for an Au pair or Nanny from Any Country that can speak English and is willing to stay with us for a minimum of 2 year or 3years.

I am a Professional/Expatriate that is why i need a Nanny for my 2 kids, My kid is fairly easy going and relaxed type, they would enjoy someone with lots of energy and enthusiasm.

Having English as a first language is not all that required and in fact, we would entertain you speaking to her in English.

I only seek an Au pair or Nanny for basic child care and light house work. If you accept to take a position with us, you would be paid $4,500 monthly with a weekly $200 pocket money.

Hence we are doing anything that would motivate the intending Nanny to put in his/her best in taking care of our child.

You shall have a private accommodation bedroom attach with a private bathroom. A Fixed land phone and an Internet ready computer. Do well to send me your references Picture and resume, and i would get in touch with you after looking into it.

Should the outcome be positive, i would send you employment Letter. I shall discuss travel arrangements in due course of which I would be of generous assistance to you.

All this for the sake of my lovely late wife.

You can reach me on my email addresses and mobile : eng.philipjames@yahoo.co.uk

Hi everyone,

I am both grateful and overwhelmed as to how much this post has helped each and everyone. It is therefore your duty to warn others. Please please, spread the word. My only purpose for posting this is not to humiliate the poor people behind this. We never know, they might just be forced to do it but again, it doesn't give them the right to full others just to save themselves.

I hope that anyone who has been warned SHOULD warn others too. This blog has been equipped with all the necessary sharing tools like

1. "Tweet This" or "Retweet", yes the button on the Upper Right portion of this blog. By doing so, you can warn other people who might just get into receiving these emails.

2. Share Through Picture:

You can click on the Picture and it will allow you to share them through Digg, StumbleUpon, Delicious, Yahoo Buzz, etc. These are pretty neat sites to keep tabs or bookmark this post and share it with friends. By doing so, you might just save a friend or relative form falling to these au pair scams.

3. Share
On the lowest portion of this blog, you can click on the "Share" button.. Do it, it's FREE!

There you go, I hope you share the word and thank God He has spared us from getting duped by these au pair scammers.

Have a lovely day everyone! - Jonha

Wow thank you for this blog. Received the same mail, i don't need to put it here cause it's the same copy with yours too. But the sender was Simon Bent. He uses bentsfamily60@yahoo.com. Im thinking that it is scam too, because I did a research, that Aupairs that are coming from Asia are not allowed to enter UK. Another mail from Biro Maria,she said she saw me from aupair-options site.But when I checked the profile number,it's not active anymore. They give this reason that they deleted their profile because they already found me,etc.. So thank God, I came to see thi blog and did some research too. So Beware. May God bless you all.

Here's a bit different one, but the same +44 number and was asked for my personal details, and the same tactic, so I was suspicious and here it is:

Dear AU Pair,

FROM MIKE PHELAN
Dear aupair,
We would like to welcome you as a new family member who we hope will become a good and reliable friend –a loving pearl for our 2 lovely kids(Lex and Sam). We are looking for someone who sees more in it than just a job and is willing to give and receive empathy, understanding and so much more.
We live in oxford - a lovely city in near London, which is the district town of the local region. Here, So we are situated right in the center of England. oxford used to be in england.Our oldest son does horseback-riding, We know many people here and can easily establish lots of contacts of all kinds, especially to people who are more or less your age. I teach students who are up to 20. We have 2 wonderful children a boy of 3 and the oldest boy of 5 Until they are back, there is some housework for you to do (vacuuming and cleaning if necessary, loading and unloading the dishwasher, tidying up the kids’ bedrooms). The rest of this time will be free time for yourself. On most days I’m home from school myself at .As you will probably know, the work-time regulation for Au Pairs in UK is 35 hours per week.
Whenever my work allows, I love to spend time with my children at lunch and during the afternoon so you will be off then. But sometimes I need time for marking and preparing lessons. This varies a lot in the course of the school year. I have no time for housework myself, except for doing the laundry. My wife is mostly away during the week. We love our children very much and need someone who treats them with respect and affection according to their needs. Honesty, openness and respect are very important for us.
There won’t be much to do with you at weekends when my wife is at home. You are always welcome to accompany us on family activities and if you want to come and work then stay with us there is no problem about that cos there are rooms for you. But sometimes, depending of what time of the school year it is, I will have to do a lot of marking even then or might have to attend some obligatory events at school, but this would be the great exception.
Until last year, I was working from home and the children were looked after by three babysitters from our neighborhood who took turns on different day of the week, so the kids will adjust to someone new quickly enough.
It would be great if you could speak English to our children. They understand a little from what they have been told by me, at school and in kindergarten. Being a teacher myself, I could, in return, give you good and competent advice of how to learn English, what to read etc., depending on your personal interests (in a very relaxed way, of course, no pressure at all). I can also organize a language course for you locally your monthly pay will be in range (450gpb) and 500gbp base on your hard work note that but .
So if you are willing to become a new member in our family, we would like to welcome you into our family, as soon as possible.

Please don't hesitate to contact us and tell us more about yourself. It would also be great if you could attach a photo. so as to forward you to my preferred immigration over here in order to make all the document you will need to be in the UK as soon as possible.Can you start in Jan or Feb 2011?

Hello Natascha,

I seriously appreciate your reply knowing you are willing and ready to be part of my family. Actually, I need you to come over here to assist me take proper care of my wonderful Angels since I hardly have the time for them just as I previously explained, so I would appreciate you come over here the soonest possible but let me ask a question, do you have Visa and Work Permit? If no, I would refer you to a Travel Agency that will help you for the USA Visa and Work Permit, here is the link through which you can contact them (e.groups_travels@hotmail.com). Do not hesitate to let them know you are from me as there may be some consideration in the charges so explain all you need for the traveling to USA to them and I assure that I will assist you with half of what so ever amount needed for the processing of your Visa and Work Permit just to justify how urgent I need your services as well as how serious I am about your coming down to work for my family as an Au Pair and for now, do consider the job yours.

Your duties includes taking the kids to school/bringing them back home, play with them, go to Museums, Playground, Cinema Hall, prepare/fix their meals and snacks. You will have your Private Room which consist of Air-Conditional, Television, 12 hours Internet Access and a Telephone to keep you in touch with your friends, families and maybe relatives as often as you may desire, a Bathroom and Toilet. You will have Saturdays and Sundays as your off days, so to enable you have enough time for yourself otherwise, you will be paid for extra services. As for your salary, I will be willing to pay you $2000 for every 4 weeks and a pocket fee of $400 weekly which I suppose should be enough for your primary needs. Regards my family pictures, I will send some upon request.

As for how long you can work for my family, well I think that completely depends on you but left to me, I do not intend to see you off in the next 2-3 years because I really would need your services. I will be very grateful if you respond better to me. You have absolutely nothing to worry about as you'll certainly be treated like one of the family member and you will have 5 days to work in a week and 2 days as your off days which is to be Saturdays and Sundays. You will have the opportunities to do what ever you want for your own good on weekends but provided they are worth doing.I already discussed about you with my little Angels, they seem to like you despite the fact that they are yet to neither see nor talk with you...Well hope to hear from you the soonest possible. Bye for now.

Kind regards,
Mr Harvey Powell

_________________________________

Since I got the email, I googled Barristed Todd Newman, never ever found anything about 'one of the best immigration lawyers'; also, I contacted UK Immigration Solicitors where Todd Newman is supposed to work, and they told me it honestly looks like an scam, and Mr Alan Reid just sent me an email 25 minutes ago.. Telling me to send back the 'contract' signed..
I just hope they don't steal my Identity, since my Passport Number was included on my CV..

I kind of always knew the offer they were making me was too good to be true.. I guess the truth is ugly, isn't it?

Now back to reality.. I gotta think how I'm going to tell my family it was just an scam, since everybody was so happy for me and my uncles were going to lend me some money to buy winter clothes :(

Thank God to my instict that made me look over the email again and found your blog when I googled the 'Certificate of Legibility' which caught my attention 'cause it said 2009.. and we're in 2010 :)


The only thing that kind of cheers me up is that Karma does exist, and those scammers soon or later will get what they deserve, meanwhile.. I hope they don't fool anyone.

When you see the name Alan Reid in combination with "barrister" Todd Newman be warned because that is an swindling combination.
I'm happy searching in Google made me open my eyes on time.

So everybody, be warned!!

Dear Teacher.

We are a Canadian family living in UK We read your profile at monstergulf.com and we have decided that you come and teach English to my Wife and my little son Peter because my Wife is a Swedish and she is not very good in English so that why we want you to come and teach English to her and my little son Though my son is better than my Wife because he is schooling here in UK but my Wife is a Nurse by Profession but her English is not good to be able to socialize with her friends here so we want you to come and teach her and my son.

About Our Family

We are a professional couple, living in a big UK city. My Wife and Son is fairly easy going and relaxed persons. Having English as a first language is not much required in fact, we would entertain you speaking to them in your own mother-tongue during lecturer so as to create fun.

We only seek a Teacher for basic English tutoring as what we need is for my Wife to atleast understand the basics in English. If you accept to take a position with us, you would be paid 3500GBP with a weekly pocket money of 400Pounds. I guess you'd say this is much, but the Company pays us well and I love my only child/Wife so much. Hence we are doing anything that would motivate you putting your best in tutoring my family (Wife/Son).

Should you accept the offer, we are willing to undertake the full cost of your traveling down here in UK. We would recommend a reputable travel agency immediately here in UK that would process your travel documents because we need you quite soon as my Wife is about to go for an interview in an Hospital this coming October and we need her to atleast defend her self in English during the interview.

Please communicate your interest to me through my direct mobile line +447024099675 so that we can discuss your travel arrangements and also my Son's birthday is approaching and i would very much want you to be there.

We sincerely look forward to hearing from you.

agreed choice of payment . I guess you'd say this is much, but my
Company pays us well and I love my only child so much. Hence we are
doing anything that would motivate you putting your best in working

resume. I am willing to undertake the full cost of your traveling down

mother.

..................................

Some other discrepancies I noticed:
1) from the original job advertisement, he said that they are from Canada but living in UK, when I asked him what are their nationality, he replied that they are all from UK (hmmm.....)

2)when I asked him of his address he said his frm london churchill palace but one blog i read from "Joise" whom received the same scam from him, he said that his address is 12 Fletcher Walk, Paradise place,City Center, Birmingham, West Midlands, B3 3HJ.Cell number 447045734048
(hmmmm...he has many address huh???)

When you try to email him, he has picture also carrying a young boy (my pity to those people he used as his pics especially the young boy)

Again, beware of scammers! thanks again to jonhappiness, ur blog is so helpfull

P.S. is there any way I could block him from sending me mails in my email add?

hi, i was also almost scammed, i was stupid to fall for it, all the way up to the point of having sent a photocopy of my passport and was about to send $850 to 'aaskash travels' in nigeria for a visa, of which the host family told me to get my visa from.
ive since cancelled my passport.
but beware of being referred to aakash.travels@yahoo.com or being contacted by ygrainerowland@yahoo.com

Hi! I've been also reciving some e mails that sounded too good at first and turned to be scammers later.
one of the scammers is someone behind the name of Shellie Ronnie.
She's been using some other names too, like Belinda.

this is her e- mail: Hello Marina,

Hope this mail finds you in good health?

I am pleased and over whelmed to receive your response. As i specified in my profile, i am a single parent living with Cherry my only daughter and i adore Cherish so much even my parents don't joke with Cherry, they communicate with me every day to know how Cherry is doing. My parents lives in Manchester while i live with Cherry in a house my father bought for me, located in KING STREET LONDON because i'm his only daughter and he loves me so much, he always wants me to visit them in Manchester always but due to my job engagement i do visit them ones in a while. My name is Shellie Ronnie with my daughter Cherry Ronnie who is 2 years old, Cherry is a fun and a loving daughter, i cherish her and plays with her, i always do things that will make her happy and i have a small garden where i plays with Cherry.

All this while my good friend has been telling me to look for an Au pair to take care of Cherry so i decided to adhere to her advise and i believe it is going to be a wonderful experience, the period of your stay is not a problem to me, all i want is to testify this experience and know how it goes. I have informed my parents about this and they are very very happy, my mother said to me that it is a good idea and i'm so excited that they supported me in this experience. I am doing all this just to make Cherry happy because she is my Angel and she is all i have for now therefore all i want from my new Au pair is to love and take good care of Cherry, my daughter is a lovely girl, she doesn't disturb, she is not suffering from any kind of sickness, she is in good health and i'm also in good health too.

In my house i have a separate one bed room flat which is also located in my house therefore your accommodation would be a live in apartment and since i'm in contact with you i will start arranging the room to be in order before your arrival. Every week i will be given you £160 as your weekly pocket money for your upkeep also i will take care of your meals and please if you have any need don't hesitate to tell me when i'm back from work if it is a need i can solve then i will solve it. I have my own private car and i also i have a bicycle it will not be necessary for you to drive because i have only one car and i normally drive it to work but my bicycle is always available, you can use it if you like but if you don't like ridding bicycle there is no problem with that OK! i'm just telling you for you to know.

I believe with this few description of my family, you have had a little picture of my family, you will see things by yourself when you arrived because seeing is believing, i promise you that i will take you as part of us not only as an Au pair but as my sibling as well and in the same time i would appreciate if you can love, take good care of Cherry and take her as your little sister.

Please if you have any question just feel free to ask me, is just that i'm always busy but i will try my best to attend to you as soon as i can.

Kindly get back to me as soon as you read this mail so that i will know your final decision and opinion.
Cherry says Hi Hi Hi to you.


Looking forward to hear from you.

Kind regards.


she'll offer you to contact her lawyer later, lawyers current e-mail adress is:
Barr-HelenaEzickson@representative.com

Many forums and blogs about scammers helped me, so I wanted to help the others.
take care

Looking deep into the process of arriving here to join our family as an Au-pair, we wouldn't want you to be involved in any immigration problems during your stay with us as a result of invalid/inappropriate residential or traveling papers because it has been on TV new of so many individuals being involved in immigration fault.

My husband was able to consult our family solicitor who is an immigration expert this afternoon in other to be on a safe side, he discussed with her on the possibility of your arrival down to UK because she works with the UK Home Office.

She informed us that she can help you arrange all the necessary traveling documents/visa needed for your trip to UK in a month time including work and residential permit, after which the Hard Copies shall be delivered to your residential address via courier service. So as you can see that it is very good for us because she has been our family solicitor for years now.

Please send me your resume CV for perusal so that i can present it to my husband for approval, do you have any health issues? if yes kindly indicate so that we can know how to arrange for your medical fitness before/as soon as you arrive. Also include a scan copy of your international passport while sending your CV okay.!

My Husbands direct mobile is +44 703 182 7510 should you wish to talk to him, my husband send his regards and we hope to meet you soon.

Much Love

Mrs Kelly Carter
I got this today. The number is from a scamer?

My name is ann ron, i live in California, and i got married four months ago.My husband and i have been living a very happy and lovely life.so as time went on, i began to notice this strange attitude that he was possessing.He was now going out with other girls, to the extent that he was no longer picking up my calls, and he was not even sleeping in my house anymore. I became confused and didn't know what to do anymore.So i became worried and stranded, that brought so many thoughts into my mind, because i have never experienced a thing like this before in my life.So i decided to visit a spell caster, to see if he can help me out.So immediately i went to the internet, where i saw an amazing testimony of a spell caster who brought someone's ex lover back, "agumaguspelltemple@gmail. com" so i contacted him immediately and i explained to him all my problems and he told me that it will be very easy for him to solve, compare to the ones that he has done.and he also gave me some proof to be really sure of his work, and he assured me that my husband will come back to me immediately he is through with the spell casting.and also he told me to put all my trust in him, and i really obeyed him.So it was 8:00 am on the next morning, when i was about going to work, when i received my husband's call, and he told me that he was coming back home, and he apologized to me, and told me that he is very sorry for the pain that he has cost me.and after some hours later, he really came back home, and that was how we continued our marriage with lots of love and happiness, and our love was now stronger than how it were before.And he also told me that once my heart desire has been granted unto me that i should go and testify of his work right here on the internet. Right now i am the happiest woman on earth today as i am writing this testimony, and i want to really thank "agumaguspelltemple@gmail.com" for bringing back my husband, and for bringing joy and love to my family.So my greatest advice for you out there who your husband or your wife is acting strange or behaving the same way like this, or you have any problem with your relationship or anything related to do with spell casting, is for you to go and visit this man anytime, and i assure you that he will be of help to you, and i am 100% sure that he will solve it out.
Thanks.

me too I don't know if they are scammers or not.
BUT i was contacted by a family in uk and they have engaged a barrister for the immigration named Joyce Campbell sollicitor.ukhomeoffice.legislator.com.
and after showing them the basic funds , they want me to pay the vaccinations fees 311gbp and the diplomatic tag 322gbp.
IS it legal and are they scammers?
Thank you for your answer.

This Mark Campbell and Sandra and James family even if I do not respond to their email, they sent me the email time to convince me but I ignore their e-mail, one day Mark Campbell sent me an email telling me that my visa was approved that he and his wife pay my visa costs, and I must sent him my copy of my passport and photocopy of my identity card, I talk to myself and say "it's weird that my visa was approved but I never sends any information about me, and he said that my visa was approved? I laughed and I told myself again that all means are good to scam people. Be careful people check well before acting or respond to their message, we do not know who is behind the screen?
