I guess my gut instincts were right *sigh*. I've been talking with this guy for the past week as well, sent pictures of "himself" with Victoria and everything. Did he include the tragic backstory about his wife dying last year and the cook taking care of the girl since and so on?

I haven't sealed any deal though, and because EVERYTHING seemed fishy I googled a bit and found this post. Also, this morning he forwarded me an e-mail from the supposed Au Pair agency:

AU PAIR APPLICATION QUESTIONNAIRE
Inbox

UK Au pair Community <[email protected]>

Attachments4:23 AM (14 hours ago)

to me, gilberttin, me
To whom it may concern,

Do find attached to this mail, Au pair Questionnaire form as per contacts made by your intending host family Agustin Gilbert. You are expected to fill the form in all sincerity as to avoid any embarrassment in the course of your job offer and stay in the United Kingdom.

A copy of the form should be sent to us and [email protected] via email for documentation and contract letter approval.

We wish to congratulate you on your new job offer and advice that you adhere to instructions.

Weird how none of the people mentioned seem to exist, right?

Hi, just wanted to post a little update.

I reverse-searched the pictures he sent me and it turns out that they've been used for scamming in other areas as well, mostly dating sites and the like. I didn't pay attention to the dates (or they weren't there, I honestly can't remember) but it seems like this has been going on for a while.

Bottom line: Agustin Gilbert = scam.

Hello! The same e-mail about the Border U.K. Agency is arrived to me, the same story and the same document but with different name:

"Attention Applicant:

Find attached to this mail, three (3) detailed information on
requirements as patterning to your placement here in the Marcus Kent
family, you are expected to furnish us with every information within 3 working days for documentation and speedy approval as your host family has pleaded with us to treat your application as priority because they will be expecting you soon.

On another hand, your host family have been issued detailed
information on requirements compulsory for Au pair Hosting and
employment, to prove that they are capable of taking charge of their
employee upon arrival and to further satisfy Au pair safety laws and
principles as have been reviewed for endorsement.

Note that you are to submit all the necessary requirements back to

as soon as possible and do not hesitate to write us if you have any
further clarifications to make.

Then they sent the contract where they assicured me 400GBP for week! A requirements document and form to fill for the VISA.
That asked me to send 1000GBP in two days with MonayGram at my name, so I could withdraw it in 48 hours, probably that the time they need to take the money before you!
Be careful!

Thanks for posting additional details of this scam. Please post any email addresses the scammer is now using. His other victims may be searching for them.

Please do not tell scammers that they are listed here - it will take them seconds to change their fake details and their new details will not be listed for any future victims to find.
