Fraud

Families

Fraudsters may join the site disguised as au pairs. Scams may be cleverly constructed to lure you in to a sense of security, perhaps using bogus referees. Signs to look out for are:
- The au pair seems too good to be true, and may have significant information about their experience and current circumstances that they do not put on the form, but tell you in an email.
- Much of the suspicious activity we have witnessed appears to originate from Nigeria or Cameroon.
- The au pair mentions how short of money they are, but claims lots of experience as a nanny/au pair whilst traveling overseas
- The au pair quite quickly invites you to converse with them via an Instant Messenger service, or similar. Certainly they will want to move away from the Universal Au Pairs internal communication, which we are able to monitor from time to time
- A request for money up-front from the family to cover travel expenses, perhaps with a promise to repay this out of future pocket money

Please remember one golden rule:

If you send money to anyone overseas in order for them to come and work for you, the chances are that they will not turn up and you will lose your money.

Although we take action wherever we can and block suspicious au pairs, a fraudster can quickly rejoin by using a new email address and creating a new profile. Please make us aware of anything you see that is suspicious in order that we can take steps to warn our family members.

Au Pairs

We continually develop the site to enhance the experience of all of our users, however you must remember that the Internet environment is one in which con artists and fraudsters will try to run scams. We are aware of several cases of stolen credit card details being used to gain family membership. Whilst these members are barred, they will have a short opportunity to make contact with au pair members during this process. Please be very careful, and be particularly cautious where a job offer sounds very good, and/or you are asked by the family, or by the family's travel agent to part with any money for visas, work permits, or travel arrangements.

We have collected a list of suspicious emails forwarded to us. Remember that Universal Au Pairs offers a degree of protection from fraud by blocking suspicious members, and offering all members internal communication.

We take the following steps to increase your safety online:

1. We warn people about the types of scam they may be exposed to;
2. We do not publish contact details for families or au pairs,
3. We monitor communication activity if we become suspicious;
4. We check that families make valid payment and that their details appear genuine;
5. We block families by both email and IP address who appear to be fraud;
6. We send out mass emails to all au pairs if we become aware of a new type of fraud, or think that one of our families is not genuine and has contacted our au pair members;
7. We block IP addresses where we know fraud attempts originate.

Although these steps cannot guarantee a successful placement, we believe they significantly reduce the likelihood of an au pair member being scammed as a result of joining our site.

It is frustrating for us, that when we take these steps, some au pairs still comment that they want us to publish their personal details online, which of course leaves them wide open to fraud attempts.

Dear Madame,
It is always good to make references before choosing aupairs.
I had send a Russian girl packing before I got Cobi.
Cobi has been our aupair for 24months now and her contract with us has ended and she do not want to increase her term of contract. she has been in charge with four of my kids of age 2,4,6 and 8 During her time with us,she did perform the following duties;
-Look after our five months old baby and at times babysit when necessary
-Drive the kids to school and pick them up after closing hours
-prepare simple meals for the kids and help them do their home work
-Arrange their drawers and tidy their rooms
-Do laundry and other household chores
-take care of our lovely and adorable dog.
Infact,Cobi was our ideal aupair and we wish you the best with her.
Kind regards,
The Cambell's family

Hi [Family],
Hope all is well you and yours.
My step dad just wired me the money for the flight as he did promise but the amount is shy of 400GBP.
My step dad did propose that I get to you to loan me the amount I am shy of and that the amount you loan me will be deducted from my salary in installments when I come over.
From my own calculation,If you deduct 100GBP from my salary every month,you will get back your money in 4months.
[Family],I count so much on your help at this particular moment because I need to pay for the flight today or Monday before noon.I have already deposited the amount my dad sent at the global traveling agency.You can send the flight balance directly to them and inform me so that I can20head to their office and get the flight ticket and send the flight details to you.You can get to the traveling agency using This email address is being protected from spam bots, you need Javascript enabled to view it or This email address is being protected from spam bots, you need Javascript enabled to view it

Subject: RE: NANNY URGENTLY NEEDED
To: F N

Hello Dear,
The job basically entails the general up keeping of the house and taking care of our only child(Jane Diana,she is about 2 years old).Jane is our only child and we love her so much but due to the nature of our job,we have little or no time to give proper attention and care to her.For example,My wife and I are presently in another country for a feasibility study with the of setting up a new branch of our company there,so we hardly have time to spend in taking proper and parental care of her,because you will agree with me that money is not everything and our child still needs proper care and moreover,we need someone who will always take care of the house when we are out of the country.
So your responsibility will be basically like that of a mother figure to Jane and you shall be greatly encouraged.All necessary incentives shall be put in place(your personal Car,convenient accommodation) and the salary will be open and negotiable.You will be required to relocate to London and it will be a minimum of ''one year'' contract but is still open to negotiation,if you want to go more than that.
The location in London is Baker Street in central London and we have had several people applying for it in London but find out that they are having a different impression about the job because of the wealth they see and they feel that they can take advantage of that and what we need is someone who will be genuinely ready to work and have a passion for it.So no matter how far the person is,all that matters is dedication and some degree of commitment to the job.
If you are ready to pick up this job,you will have to contact our Travel agency and arrangements for the necessary preparations like preparing your travel documents and working permit here in UK will start from there and all the responsibilities will be taken care of by us,but you will need to contribute just a little to it in order to show your dedication and readiness to work, as soon as you show your full interest,every other thing will be fast and preferably,we want you here as soon as possible.The agents email is......
( This email address is being protected from spam bots, you need Javascript enabled to view it ), you should contact them via email and let them know of your readiness for the job and subsequent details will be made known from there.We hope you will find this offer a life changing offer and show your interest in working for us,i will be looking forward to hearing from you as soon as possible.
Regards.

Look at this list: you sent the same e-mail to another au pairs, therefore I can think that you would like to get money from us only.

Thanks for the email, yes i can apply for your Visa and buy the plane ticket for your trip to UK but the problem is that i can't afford to entrust paying for all this due to my previous experience, so you have to pay part of the cost for me to be sure that you will not disapoint me like the other aupair from philippines did. Let me know the amount you can afford to pay soon and get back to me as soon as you decide on the payment. Aside this, i am sorry to say there is no other way i can help you, otherwise i will have to look for another caregiver that cen comply with my condition of terms of application. So,let me know your decisions soon so that i can also know if you are still interested.

Hope to hear from you soon.
