***WARNING BE CAREFUL OF SCAMMERS!!*** (Centex)

Everyone offering child care PLEASE beware of scams out there! I just got scammed. NEVER watch a child or trust a “parent” who doesn’t pay you upfront. They likely will not. They typically will give you some sob story about their bills and why they can’t do this or that. About their next “payday” . Drop their kid(s) off and that’s it. Usually lies. It’s only to play on your emotions. It’s a plot. I have read about this happening but it had never happened before to me so I disregarded it. I was wrong . Apparently they go from caregiver to caregiver doing this which is very pathetic. You will have watched their kid and get no pay . And you can usually tell a bum from the moment they walk in the door but I tried being empathetic and was wrong. PLEASE beware of these scammers telling you they will pay you on payday . Some are most definitely lying and you will not get a dime. Always get it upfront. Was trying to help out someone who seemed to be struggling. Definitely in talks with authorities about suing this person! Lesson learned.
