I contacted someone on Craigslist needing a nanny and this is their reply. Does it sound like a scam?
They say they are currently in Russia and have a trip here in Aug for the month and need someone to watch their 3 yr old M-F. The said they pay 300 a week and in total they will pay 1200 for the month. It is supposed to be a business trip. They said they will send the money in advanced to secure me as a babysitter. How do you find out if something is a scam? It seems like a real email, just too good to be true.
If you can answer, I can split the actual email in the comments, because the email is too long to put in this detail box. Thank you.
