is caring,loving,motherly care and well determined that can take good care of my kids for me but with the recommendation from you and that
is the more reason I may need your services,hopefully you will be my kid's Nanny and do according to your words. I don't play with my kids
at all because they are the apples of my eyes,i worked because of them and i can pay so much on them. My advice to you is that you make all the expenses to reach here in United Kingdom and i shall be responsible for refund for every expenses made by you immediately you get here
because why i said so is that i have paid for 2 Nannies in the past months which they did not come to my home but went to somewhere else

Don't worry about the United Kingdom,it's a nice place to stay and which i hope you will enjoy staying here with my family and you will have the access to internet
In fact i have a personal PC at home for myself but my kids usually play games on their own PC, i will get you a computer to start using
for your own use.All expenses made by you will be refunded immediately you get here.The travel agency will get you Visa,flight ticket,working permit,health insurance and others for you. What you have to do now is to contact the travel company below here in UK so that they can make the arrangement for your coming over via the information you will be needing to provide them below:

The email above, pretending to come from Mr Jim Shannon, was sent from IP address 197.255.171.120 - Ikeja, Nigeria. The following email, pretending to come from the fake Nanny Agency, was also sent from IP address 197.255.171.120 - Ikeja, Nigeria. The same scammer is sending emails from both the fake Jim Shannon and the fake Nanny Agency.
