Using the name Nancy O, when I replied to an email that was left in my message box for Care.com a man by the name of Ricardo Moretti tell me all about his high school sweetheart Linda and their daughter Laura and then offered me a job to watch his four year old daughter once him & his wife come to town from Pittsburgh Pa. I suspected something when he offered to pay for my services in advance… But when his check did not arrive he called me frantically because I was supposedly to send some money to the “toy maker“? Well his check was delayed by a snowstorm and so he asked me if I had a checking account and if I could go ahead and pay the “toy maker“ although he refused to send me a copy of his picture ID. When I ignored the text he came back at me frantically and rather rudely that I must not care for his four-year-old daughter “Laura“ and now he knows that I must not be the person in my profile ⁉️
Long story short he playing on my emotions for weeks, and when I asked him to call me on the phone he mentioned that they were a “Deaf couple“‼️
In the end I was sent a check for $3600 from an attorney‘s office in Connecticut which was FAKE!! The cops didn’t care post office didn’t care and when I had a chance to check my email there was one from Care.com… A warning! It was almost too late. But I followed my instincts and I was correct. This is a big scam that plays on your emotions and when you don’t send money he becomes very rude !!
Also, the photo did not come back as fake when we did a reverse check !! It all could have been worse. I could’ve got a new bank teller with no manager present and then I would’ve owed the bank $3600. But I went with my gut and asked the teller upfront to confirm the check which sealed my suspicion.
