Complaint: I placed an ad on Craigslist.com. For Babysitting in my home. On April 26th, 2012. I received an email from Andrew Ivanovic. He wanted me to watch his son Tom from 10am to 5pm. I could come to his hotel room or he would drop off the child at my home. He would pay me $300 a week for 4 wks. He asked me for more information about myself. 1) Are you married? 2) Do you have any special attitude? 3) Do you have any crime records? 4)Do you have a valid drivers license? 5) What is your origination country? And let me know since when you have been in USA ? 6) How old are you ?You must be Over 18 Years of Age. I replied by answering questions. Then next email from him, he wanted to know my street address to send the payment directly to my house. So I gave home address. I received a fedex package at my home thursday, May 10th. Enclosed was a cashier’s check for $2850.00. I called information to see who had sent me the check. I gave operator the address and she said it was from Rescaro Child Safety Systems and gave me the phone #. Andrew emailed me on same day. Wanting to know if I had received payment. & please email him when I received payment so he could give me further instructions. I replied, Told him I received ck for $2850. I understood he was paying me in advance but what was the other $1650 for. He replied on May 11th, thanks for the update ,i want you to deposit the check and as you already aware that $1200 will be an upfront payment of your salary,the rest $1650 will be sent to the store manager for the purchase of my kid’s items because i want you to set up everything before our arrival.I want you to send the money today through western union to the store manager so that the items can be shipped to your place prior to our arrival.Here is the name and address you are to send it to below… Name—Victor Ozoma Baltimore,Maryland,21201 I want you to deduct the transfer charges from the money and get back to me with the money transfer control number(mtcn#) and the exact amount sent once you have completed the transfer.Thanks Andrew. At this point I began to think this was a joke. I sent him an email, I will have to do this tomorrow. My bank is already closed today. Will I need his phone number? he replied: Its ok,you do not need his phone number.> Andrew Then I went online searching for scams on craiglist.com and found that there are many scams. And one is using a conterfeit cashier’s check And this is my report.
