i really thought it was true as they send picture .. 4 pictures of their so called family, they even send out a contract, good thing i am a call center agent uk based mobile company. the number and the post code/adress they are using is invalid. we are in the process of contacting the uk attorney officer and they are so willing to shoulder everything.... and maybe that is the person who will ask money to process the this and that.

Hello Yham, and welcome to ScamWarners. Thank you for posting this scam.

Yes, you are correct, the scammer - probably through the fake Attorney - would instruct you that there is a fee to pay or that a Western Union or MoneyGram transfer must be made to prove that you have 'sufficient funds'. All money that is sent or transferred would then be stolen from you.

Au pair scammers frequently pretend that they will pay for many travelling expenses. In reality, the fake host family does not have an au pair position to offer to anyone, and nobody will ever travel to become their au pair. Everything is invented, and the same scammer sends the emails from both the fake host family and the fake lawyer. Sometimes they will also introduce other fake people - maybe a travel agent, an immigration official, or a previous au pair, and the same scammer will send the emails from all these invented people too.

The telephone numbers for both the fake host family and the fake attorney are not normal UK telephone numbers. All telephone numbers which begin with +4470 are 'redirect' numbers, which redirect all calls to a mobile phone in another country. The majority of au pair scammers are really living in Nigeria (they just pretend to live in the UK, USA, or other countries), and the +4470 telephone numbers redirect the calls to their mobile phones in Nigeria.

Please stop all contact with this scammer, now that you know that it is a scam. Scammers are criminals, and you don't want to continue writing to a criminal!
