Alexandra R. Hobbit is another fake family. Please be VERY careful when contacting families through Facebook. If it sounds too good to be true, it is!

I saw an advert on a Facebook page of a man looking for an au pair for his family in the USA. I got talking to him as this is something I am interested in, he then sent me an email address to contact and tell them I was 'working for him' and they would send me details of how to pay the $1250 for the visa. I googled the email address and the scamwarners.com website came up, I got reading it and realised it was a scam, I thought as much as he didn't ask for any experience, my CV or anything. Anyway, the name he was using is Frank Lauren and is living in New York according to his Facebook. The email address he gave me was [email protected] hope this helps

Hello Chloe-Ellen,
Thanks for posting this information as a warning to others who may be a victim of this scam.

It is ALWAYS a scam
If the pet seller or shipper asks for money to be sent via Western Union, Money Gram, any brand of gift card. Walmart To Walmart , Zelle , PayPal friends and family option, or mentions Cameroon

Thanks for your response,
This payment stamp approval is very important and the first payment you've made can't be returned because we used the $1250 for the process of your J1 visa and we can't stop it because your arrival date has been fixed so we will urge you to make this payment of $1550...The U.S department of state has to have the funds before your J1 visa can be fully approved and authorized.
Yours Faithfully
The AuPair International

A fake host named Micheal Collins messaged me and told me about his family, address, etc. etc.

I know That looking for "A Perfect Nanny" like you can be a
long,frustrating and sometimes distressing task For a family,and i
know you are a highly experienced person whose primary charge is the
children and home keeping. I want you to know that i don't have any
thing with an Au Pair company that why i drop my post on Facebook and
i also want you to know that I work as a Building Constructor Eng,I
live 1435 West Broad Street, Columbus, OH, United State,i have a kid
and the name of my kid is Lucy,she is 7years old....

Your work is quite simple such as, cleaning her rooms, doing her
laundry, entertaining her, disciplining her, teaching her manners and
caring for her when she is sick or upset,playing with her ,give her
love and attention. You should also be able to keep control of
children without the use of anger,you will do the changing/ making
the her beds, making her meals and tidying up the play area and her
bedroom,spend time with her to play with her and educate her...

You will also do some duties such as meal prep, grocery shopping or
errand running. These activities, if mutually agreeable, should occur
either when the children are in school (groceries or errands) or be
performed with the children (meal prep), making this a learning
activity Such as.

Reading stories and books,Scheduling activities for the
children,Managing play dates,Bringing the children to and from
school,Helping with homework,Attending any appointments or events that
the child is required to
attend with them I know you will make great friends,find
joy/fun/happiness with my family ,and I am satisfied at given you the
opportunity to work in my home.

Accommodation: You will be staying with us when you get here, You will
have your Private Room which will have Bathroom/Toilet, Television,
Air Conditional and Internet Computer. You will have access to the
Internet and a Telephone at home to get in touch with your friends and
love ones. You will be having Saturdays and Sundays as your off days
while i will be at home to take care of the kid, you will be having
all the privacy you want, so to enable you have enough time for
yourself.

Salary:

As for your salary, I will be will be paying you $3000 Usd Monthly
equivalent to the US Au pair program and minimum wage and a pocket fee
of $300 Usd weekly which I suppose should be enough for your primary
needs and that does not include you to pay any taxes, after when i see
that you work very well i shall increase your salary.

Start Date & Period of Employment:

You are expected to start as soon as you arrive here and I'll like to
know how long you can work for my family because, completely it
depends on how long you would like to work here with me but left to
me, I do not intend to see you off in the next 4-6 Month because I
really would need your services. If due to circumstances beyond your
control or for any other reason, you wish to leave at an earlier date
than our agreement, you will be required to give one month’s notice. I
need someone who is Honest,Caring,Trustworthy,Loving,Affectionate,
Concerned, Understanding,friendly and Who loves Kids, i want to play a
role of a real mother to my kid because she is all i have. Note that
you have nothing to worry about because you will be treated like one
of the family member, all i need from you is that you take good care
of my kid as your attitude towards him will go a long way in future. i
can send you some of our recent and old pics. Once again, I can assure
you that when you come you will be treated like one family and you
will be very happy to work with my family. I will be more than happy
if you are willing to join my family. Well i believe with this letter
you definitely know much about my family so if you think you have
interest in my family and got this attractive, that our family is a
kind of family you are looking for don't hesitate to reply me when you
get this email, to proceed to the next step about the US Au Pair
Program and your Documentation Process.Thanks so much and have a nice
and Wonderful day, Stay Blessed till I read back from you......

Hope to hear from you soon....

Mr Micheal Collins And Kid..:)

Then I was directed to contact this AU PAIR INTERNATIONAL AGENCY for me to make the transactions and start the processing of my visa.

I will like you to send an email to Lizzy which is an LCC in the
Agency...She is the one to help you about all the details and
information's you need about the Agency and she will help you with all
your application and documentation process immediately you have
understand all the details she sent you and you willing to continue.

So below is her contact number:

Lizzy| LCC
Agent Au Pair, Inc.
1450 Sutter Street #526
San Francisco, CA 94109
Email: [email protected]
Tel: (972) 836-7414

Until then, I realized they have the same expression of putting on the phrase "hope you understand that??", that is where I started to think that it was a scam. It is like only one person was emailing me using both names. I asked Lizzy for an Identification card that she really works for this agency and until now she haven't responded to me. I almost trusted them because they linked me to the AU PAIR INTERNATIONAL website at first. But good to know that that LIZZY SMITH is not real when I asked the agency. How can such people do this.

This phone number 447031905831 is a re-direct number. Mostly used by scammers. It is a number that can be answered anywhere in the world. Scammers like to use re-direct numbers to pretend that they are in the UK.
