Au Pair Scams: Beware and Be Aware!

If you are a Filipina and would like to be an au pair in the UK, save all your resources and efforts and find a host family in Switzerland or Norway instead because the Philippine government has long issued their warning about fake online jobs or emails coming from au pair scammers who pretend to be host families from UK. If in any case you've received any of the letters which I will be posting below, feel free to leave a comment of warning for many other au pairs. 

Since I have long been blogging about the modus operandi of the au pair scammers, some of them might have been using different emails instead of the old ones but the content of their email would surely be similar if not the same to this from Nicole Edwards, the au pair scammer.

Please, do not send any money to anyone especially through Western Union because I am sure you will NEVER hear from these people again after you did!


Below are the new batch of au pair scam emails I got for the past 3 weeks. I have literally accumulated a database of au pair scams! haha


Thanks to Yahoo's generous mail storage capacity, I was able to save all of their fancy emails.

Most of these au pair email scams start with the salutation:

1. Dear Au Pai
2. Hello
3. Hi Au Pair

You might be wondering why. Simply because they've been email blasting and they just don't have much time to put the names of their prospective victims individually. It's funny that sometimes these au pair scammers are having some kind of identity crisis because their email addresses and names are often conflicting. Sometimes the receiver is not even you!

Read on and see for yourself. I purposely didn't edit their format so you will see that they were poorly drafted and written.

Dear Au pair,
We are a cheerful, friendly family in Cambridge , England.We have two
happy and affectionate kids, Jasmine (3) and Aidan (4) 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 with Lego, 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 an hour away from London on the train (75km), and there
is a mainline station direct to London in our village. We are also on
the main bus routes. Dad works as a senior accountant for for the
Greater London Authority, and Mum is a university lecturer in
Cambridge . We love walking and swimming, cooking for friends, going
on little trips with the children, and cycling.
Description of tasks:
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 humor.
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

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.We want you to start this month or early next month.If you don't have the
Working Permit kindly contact British immigration service
to help you with  the UK  Working Permit and i want you to know that you dont need a Visa,as soon as you contact them,they will get back to me and i will send them an invitation letter, here is the link that you will contact her at (travelexpressltd@aol.com)
If you contact them let her know that you are from me, and explain to
her all what you need for the traveling to UK, I would call the her to
mail you the information to get visa and working permit in uk to make
you sure how am serious about you coming here to work for my family as
an aupair, the job is already yours.You have nothing to worry about
you will be treated like one of the family and the whole weekend you
are free and may study, do some hobbies or traveling. You can go out
in the car if you drive...We want our kids to be happy not with us
alone but with you too and we believe you can give them all they

Do not easily believe in these au pair scammers. The au pair visa for Filipinos to go to UK has long been abolished since November 26, 2008. You could might as well find a host family in Switzerland because the Philippine government has lifted their ban for au pairs in the said country.

If you have received any of these emails or similar to them and you suspect that they are au pair scam emails, feel free to comment below and warn others.


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

Yeah, those are scams. In my jobsites, I usually get postings for these types of jobs, as well as jobs like rex Hotel or any hotel job supposedly from UK.

People should be very careful about these jobs. Use common sense - you should not pay to get a job, especially if it involves huge amount of money.

Jonha @ Happiness said...

Ditto on not having the need to pay for anything since you're looking for the job. The host families or employers are the ones who are supposed to shoulder the expenses and NOT you.

I actually got an email telling me that it would be a shame if I can't afford the barrister fee or what-in-the-world fees that they simply crafted or created.

Ever heard of BTA? Well they simply crafted it, and lots of other documents that are simply made up!

bloggista said...

LOL. Modesty aside, in my experience, a foreign company shoulders all the expenses... They even gave me a one week free travel to see their company, the neighborhood, the people... That way I was able to make a better decision...

So is it true for other jobs? Yeah. And the truth is, even legal recruiters make money out of these. Employers pay them money, and they also ask job seekers money.

A very sad reality - which is always prone to abuse. I wish we will see politicians who have the balls to regulate the recruitment industry.

I hope that a Senator someday will start a program of protecting people from getting scammed / duped by both legal and illegal recruiters. I don't see one, but I see a handful of them 'brandishing' their achievements of rescuing OFWs, and assisted them in repatriation. But these are "reactive" solutions. Sigh...

Jonha @ Happiness said...

Naks iba ka bloggista! haha But you are right, it should be a company/hiring individuals to shoulder the expenses. So, did you take the job offer?

That's a very nice suggestion, I hope the government would have the fangs to look into this issue and really implement solutions that will help our kababayan at hindi lang yung pansariling kapakanan ng bulsa nila. Panay pasa ng bill na para lang sa pansariling interes. Yung mga tumutulong ay kapag ka nasaktan kana, nasalanta na ang bahay, nasira ang buhay, hindi naman sila sa root of the problem nagfofocus, kapag ka malala na or may publicity na sila gumagana.

This is a rampant problem most especially to Filipinos who are desperate to jump unto the bandwagon of working abroad. Sigh! Such a sad state of affair. Great blog!

Jonha Ducayag Revesencio said...

Right Jun,

Believe it or not, I have been a little desperate that I signed up in almost all of the au pair matching sites before and look at what I've got, bazillion of au pair scam emails. I thank God for the wisdom that He provided me and I was able to discern which is legit and that which is isn't. I then decided to turn them on my advantage and posted them online so other aspiring au pairs would be warned. :)

Hey Jonha :D
thank you for your comment (sorry for my late reply but I actually never check/use my blog lol) I just wanna thank you again for doing this, and if I'll ever get such a scam again this will the first place I'm going to report!! After the last scam I got from c@fsg406.com I insulted them quite badly and for now they stopped bothering me!
I'm probably going to delete my profiles on all the au pair sites anyway since I've already found a very lovely family (where I'm going to start my duty today whoop whoop).
Just a few things I'd like to say, I love all your blogs (too bad you closed the celeb one) and this one was really helpful, not only because of the scams but in general. Any girl who's going to apply as an au pair should, like you wrote, BE AWER and trust their first instinct. The only tip i can give to anyone who's looking for a family is to use aupairworld.com it's quite easy and simple to get in contact with the families without being a premium member whatsoever and 'till now it’s pretty much scam free!
Anyway, wish you (and every au pair who comes across your blog) all the best and keep up the good work girl!!!
xoxo

Yes, unfortunately there are some scammers on the Net and everyone should be careful with their personal information. Use common sense when communicating with people you don´t know.

Au pair sites such as http://www.nannygps.com will generally bar scammers and list security updates and sample emails.
