Dear Potential Victim
I see that you have accepted our offer. I am very glad and happy that you have decided to take the nanny position to care for my little girl. Juliet is a very healthy girl. She has no allergies, she is as inquisitive as any little kid of her age. She is also potty trained.


You can learn about Juliet and our family from our previous nanny Mary ([email protected]). I have attached a family picture so that you have an idea of how we look like. I will also like to have a picture of you so that I can show it to my family. I know I have found Juliet a nanny.


Your pay will be tax free and we will also take care of your medicals. Weekends will only be on Saturdays from 10am to 5pm and Sundays from 3pm to 7pm. That will be twice in a month. You will be required to do Juliet's laundry and you could pick up the groceries ones or twice if you feel like.


As soon as you have set up your account with Bank Of America, just send me the following information


Account Name
Account Number
Your Zip Code


As soon as you do, you will receive your upfront payment as well as securing the nanny position.


Have a lovely weekend.

Ashley Anderson

Hello ,


I am happy that we have come to an agreement and I can be rest assured that I have a nanny for my daughter.


I am so glad that you are serious about securing the position. I believe that we are going to be a perfect match.

Ashley Anderson


Following is the email from the "Nanny" who will tell you how good this family is, of course, it is the same scammer

Dear xxx
I really love that family.They treat me good and I feel bad leaving them. Juliet is playful girl and smile always. I be with them for 7 months and those be the best times of my life. I stop because my mum be very sick and she want me to come back. I am 28years and they always pay me with bank account, 2000usd every month.

Please take care of Juliet for me she be very very good girl and like to eat and play.

Maria


And the following picture may be sent, the picture has been stolen and is definately not the person you have been in contact with

This is a later email, the money will be credited from a compromised credit card, eventually the bank will work out there has been a mistake and follow the payment into your account, you will be liable for the money illegally placed in your account and may also be contacted by law enforcement

We are having so much fun here but something just came up, and it got me very worried. Before, we left for our vacation, I ordered for some items for Juliet and I just got a mail that they have been delivered.

We are on vacation right now and there is no way I can send the money to them from where we are, so I was hoping that when my husband credits your account tomorrow, you take your upfront payment of $100 and send the balance to them via western union money transfer like I normally do when I am around.

I wont want to loose Juliet's items. My customers have been very good to me and I won't want to be ungrateful. I am hoping that you do this favor for me. I will be more than happy.

Thank you very much for your assistance.

I have attached a family picture so that you have an idea of how we look like. I will also like to have a picture of you so that I can show it to my family.

Ashley Anderson


Finally, this email, after this point the potential victim told the scammer that she realised it was a scam
Hello xxxx,

My husband just made the transfer of $1000.00 into your account. I want you have your $100 upfront payment and send the balance of $900.00 to the person below:

Surname: James
First Name: Mark
City: London
Country: United Kingdom

As soon as you withdraw the money from your account, you should go to the nearest western union money transfer outlet to send the money.

There will be a charge for sending the money at western union, it should come from the balance of $900.00. You are to get back to me with the following information after you have sent the money by western union money transfer so that I can send the details to them.

1. SENDERS' NAME
2. AMOUNT SENT
3. MTCN NUMBER(Money Transfer Control Number)

Thanks so much. You are the best

Ashley Anderson

Welcome to Scamwarners, and I'm glad this site helped you.
Sadly it no longer seems possible to post adverts on the Internet without scammers trying to take advantage.

Edited to make it make sense.

Hi Cinderella and welcome to Scamwarners

We are glad you checked first too :lol:

Sadly many people end up being scammed when they could have found the details if they thought to check it out as you did, most scammers details will come up in searches if you know where to look and what to search on, a few simple searches and in most cases you will know.

Thanks for posting the additional email address, if you have any questions, please dont hesitate to ask
