Anti Scam Programme
We want you to know that topaupairs.com does everything it can to protect its members from scammers, however sometimes they get through our systems, so we want you to be aware of certain people mainly in Africa that are operating scams on all websites!
Here at topaupairs.com we want people using the internet to find their Au Pair or Au Pair Placement to do so without falling victim to Scams.
We strongly recommend you do not under any Circrumstances send Money, Checks, Western Union, MoneyGram or any other method of payment to anyone especially if they are from Nigeria or Cameroon. If you are unsure please check with us first by emailing email@example.com quoting the Au pair or Family reference number or Email Address.
Scammers posing as a family offer a high salary to make the job look attractive. They eventually ask for money directly or involve a bogus travel agency to get money claiming that it is needed for the ticket, visa and paperwork.
It is also recommended that you do not provide anyone any sensitive information about yourself such as your bank account number, your passport number or photocopy of your passport, and your social security number. Please use commonsense and caution if you have any suspicion about a user and report it to us immediately.>
