    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...

Always ensure that your child receives quality care by taking the time to investigate the provider and by asking for references! We simply cannot verify the claims of every daycare provider.
We expect providers to keep their listing and available openings up-to-date. However, to prevent oversights, openings expire after 45 days.
