Daycare Money scam alert
« on: May 30, 2018, 01:38:12 PM »
I have received a message for daycare, after a couple emails I am told they are out of the country and would like to send a deposit to hold the position until they return...a months fees without meeting me.   As I have seen this before, I said no.   Then comes the pressure to send you a cheque to pay for the holding fee of a month.   The scam is, you get the cheque, then you are immediately contacted that they sent to much and need it back immediately to be able to return home or whatever.   When you send this cheque in a week or so, however long the banks take, you find the cheque they sent has bounced...your bank deducts that money, charges you the bounced cheque fees and you money you sent back is gone.   Please be aware.
