Marija - 2011-01-31

So i almost got scammed and you can believe how greatful i am cause of this site!!!

So i was registered on this free au pair site and i was hoping i could find soe family i could work for and this 'man' sent me a message!
We were emailing each other and everything sounded perfect.. He sent me pic of his family which was like magazines and that was questionable, so i started to insist on skype conversation. Then he sent me CONTRACT! about my dutes and everithing which i signed and i am soooo feeling bad cause of it now, but they can do anything cause everything is scam.
I attached the contract so you can see what is all about!
