    Scam Inquiries?

    A few weeks ago, I received a message on my cell asking about my daycare space. She gave an email address. I emailed her back saying the space was still available. She replied and indicated that she is a Christian. The letter was convoluted. In a nutshell, she was saying that she's a single mom who's about to open up an art shop (offering me $400. a week for a part time space), and that she wanted me to contact her financier - and give some info - so they'll know where to send the money.

    Anyone got something similar to that?

    There is a warning about those scams inside each Member account.
    We also list the most common ones here:

    As always on the Internet, be careful and only deal in-person with people from your city/area.

A few tips...

If you visited or if you're using a childcare provider found on DaycareBear, do not hesitate to leave a review. This will most certainly help other parents!
We expect providers to keep their listing and available openings up-to-date. However, to prevent oversights, openings expire after 45 days.
