Looking for nanny and caregiver work? Beware of this "hiring" scam
Caregiver websites can help you find jobs, but scammers also use them to find people to rip off. Have a look:
This video is from the Federal government's Federal Trade Commission. It describes a scam where someone sets up a website that looks like it hires people for nanny and caregiver jobs. When you apply, you might get a "You're hired!" reply along with a (fake) check and some instructions to send your own money to the hiring company for supplies or other expenses. Any money you send may be lost to the scammers.
