The scammer calling himself Richard Coleman also pretends to live in the UK. This email, however, was not sent from the UK, it was sent from Nigeria, as proven by the IP address: - Lagos, Nigeria.

From: richard coleman <[email protected]>

Hello ,

I am Richard Coleman ,From United Kingdom, I work as a scientist, am happily married and blessed with 2 kids. Cole 3 years and Jane 5 years. My kids are very intelligent and very cool. We are looking for an AuPair or Nanny that is flexible with our time, My wife Mrs. Kate on the other hand will have varying work hours, but would be very considerate to your time as well. For the past year She have been a full-time student and mom, and have just recently graduated. She have just returned back to full-time work and feel as though my children would be best served by having a nanny or an aupair. We are looking for someone that we can treat as part of our family/friend and not just as a nanny/aupair. my wife and I are easy to get along with you, want to make you feel comfortable and at home, we love someone who is honest,trustworthy and understanding and we would like our aupair/nanny to be a comfortable care giving partner/companion/friend who is caring, flexible, and will have fun with our family.
Since my wife and i will not be around until weekends, I would also love our au pair to go shopping with us, go out to eat with us, go to the movies with us, participate in family events, go on trips with us (we love going to amusement parks), share holidays with us, etc.--become a part of our family. We really want someone who will pro actively talk, sing, laugh, interact, engage with the kids. We would really enjoy a light-hearted, fun, and enthusiastic person who's ready for a neat English experience with a young, active family. We have an extremely supporting family here in the area, and the children's grandparents play very active roles in their lives.
And the working hour is just about 7 hours per day and your responsibility in my house is just to take care of my Kids,take them shopping ,taking them to the school, if you can drive then you will drive them to school and if you cannot drive then you will take a cab, And also you have a private room bathroom toilet, TV, personal Computer. We are looking forward to the opportunity of meeting you and having you become a part of our happy family.

As for how long you can work for my family, well I think that completely 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 2-3 years because I really would need your services. I will be very grateful if you respond better to me. You have nothing to worry about you will be treated like one of the family and you will have 5 days to work in a week and 2 days as your off days that is to be Saturdays and Sundays. You will have the opportunity to do what ever you want to for you own good on weekends but provided they are worth doing.

I already discussed about you with my little Angels, they seem to like you despite the fact that they are yet to neither see nor talk with you. Well hope to hear from you the soonest possible.

Warmest regards from,
Mrs Richard Coleman

This is a stolen photograph used by this scammer.


The following email was also sent from Nigeria; IP address - Lagos, Nigeria. The travel agency is fake, and is part of the scam.

From: richard coleman <[email protected]>


I seriously appreciate your rapid reply knowing you are willing and ready to be part of my family. I really need you to come over here to assist me take proper care of my wonderful Angels since I hardly have the time for them just as I previously explained, so I would appreciate you come over here if possible before next weekend, but let me ask a question. Do you have visa and work permit...? If you don't have visa and work permit, I would advise you email my Travel Agency to help you for the UK Visa and Work Permit, here is the link through which you can contact them ([email protected]) Do not hesitate to let them know you are from me as there could be some consideration in the charges so explain all you need for the traveling to UK to them and I assure that I will assist you with half of what so ever amount needed for the processing of your Visa and Work Permit just to justify how urgent I need your services here as well as how serious I am about your coming down to work for my family as an Au Pair, so for now, do consider the job yours.

Warm Regards
