Re: Re au pair

I am so grateful for finding these reports. I feel so sick and violated. My daughter just accepted a job with identical job offer/contract but from a Mr. John Roger. I am attaching the correspondence that we received. I am unable to attach the Letter from the "Lawyer, Bar Cullen James". WHAT I WANT TO KNOW IS WHAT DO THESE PEOPLE GAIN FROM THIS? IF I COULD ONLY GET MY HANDS ON THEM.

Dear Au pair,

How are you doing? We hope this mail meets you in good health and hope
you and your family are doing wonderfully well? We feel great
contacting you for an Au pair position for a period of 6-12 Months
after reviewing your profile on website and we pray
eventually you will join our family. We are in
dire need of someone who can come into our home and take good care of
our son and most especially give him special attention. We need
someone charismatic and who is wonderful with children. An Au pair who
will love our little angel exactly the way we do. We love having fun
and we are positive you will enjoy the experience in our home.

My name is John Roger, 45 a video Editor and script writer with the
British Broadcasting Cooperation(BBC) and I travel alot, my wife Viola
36 is Working as an orthopedic surgeon with long days. Our only Son
Bill is 5 years old.
We live in a spacious lovely home in London, United
Kingdom. we need
someone who will be able to see to Bills immediate needs and give him
special attention. So that is why we contacted you. we need someone with more
experience and who can give our Son the care He needs and who
will love him just the way we do.

We are searching for someone special to enter the family and take care
of our beloved Son and also take care of our home when my wife
and I are away. Someone who appreciates family values and is ready and
willing to be a special friend and 'big
sister/brother if you like to our Son. We enjoy doing all sorts
of fun things such as going to the movies,barbecue,arts,having
friends and neighbors over for lunch, swimming,going to the amusement

Our Son enjoys his Comic books. We also love cooking and making
special delicacies.We are a young family and we love doing fun things
such as weekend
trips to our cabin where we go fishing, hunting and camping. My wife
makes the best grilled fish in the world if I may add. She also loves
to cook so we usually have family and friends over for dinner parties
and barbecues. We also have family weekends on Sundays after church(we
are Anglicans) where we meet with our extended family members and just
have fun and talk about the previous week. Bill loves this because he
gets to meet and play with his cousins. Bill is very special to us and
He is also gifted. He loves sports, arts, computer games. music and
takes piano lessons twice a week. She is also very funny and lights up
the house with his big smile and funny baby jokes.

Our Son is a very fun and energetic young lad full of life and
happiness. He is a joy to be around and we want the best for him. We
are confident the two of you will get along and get to know each other
so much better.

However due to our tight job schedules we do not always have time to
be there for him. So we basically need you to take care of him for a
few hours till we return. London is a lovely city full of life and we
are positive you will love it here.

We will pay for all document and travel expenses. Kindly send us your
resume and recent pictures of you so we may know more about you and
perhaps some of the work you have done and if satisfied we will
clarify you more about the more important details and working
conditions including your salary and other matters before finally
sending you a contract letter to make you an official and legal member
of our small but nice family.

Regards to you and your family and we hope to hear from you. All the best.

God bless.

Warmest Regards,
Family Roger

Re: au pair (fake nanny job, Border Agency, England)


You won't believe it but I just got scammed by the same person! Well, almost scammed... I did not send the money they wanted and went to the police. I also sent an e-mail tot the UK Home Office that they are using their name.

I can't believe that people do this... who can we trust?

Re au pair

Thankyou so much for posting this! I too got offered the same contract, but I got offered more money making it that much more appealing, they too got confused with the gender of their son which led me to believe it was dodgy!

Re au pair

I really thank you for posting your contract letter as I received exactly the same a few days ago.Now I am really sure that it is a scam because I only had little doubts before.This family seemed so perfect!but I had my doubts when they emailed me that they were glad that I would take care of their "little daughter" but they had previously said that they had a son!!!
I thank you once again!
