  • Babysitting Scammer!

    $0.00Unresolved

    Received a text message from the number 844-394-9883 saying the lady's name was Lisa Looney. She said her employer was looking for a pet sitter and they had seen my pet care profile on care.com. She told me to email her employer who was named Martha Faust. After emailing Martha Faust, I became suspicious. She had agreed to send me a check of $300 in advance so I could watch her dogs. She never interviewed me or asked if I was qualified to watch her dogs (which were supposedly a Golden Retriever from London and a German Shepard). All she asked for was my full name and address. She also mentioned that she was married to a man named John Faust for 6 years and was 6 months pregnant.

    She answered my add about a babysitting job and said she will pay me $300.00 and send me a check in advance and I can cash it and send her manager the rest of the amount, I knew something was NOT right with her sending me a check to cash without knowing me.
