How to stay safe on-line

health check

Unfortunately there are lots of on-line scams. Scams are illegal plans to trick people into handing over money. You've probably seen these in your junk email, encouraging you to provide personal details or money to claim a prize. Generally if a offer seems too good to be true, it isn't genuine.

If you believe that anyone on our site is attempting to scam you, or engaging in dis-honest behaviour of any kind, please contact us immediately.

Guidelines for on-line safety

 

Families

You should never send money to a prospective Au Pair. Au Pairs are responsible for their own travel expenses.

Never provide personal information such as passport numbers, credit cards or bank account details.

Initial discussion should be via secure messaging on our site, which does not reveal your personal contact information.

Once you believe someone to be a genuine candidate a Skype video interview should be arranged. An Au Pair who refuses a video interview may not be the person they claim to be in their profile.

Au Pairs

You should never send money to a Host Family. There is never any circumstance under which this would be considered normal.

Never provide personal information such as passport numbers, credit cards or bank account details.

Initial discussion should be via secure messaging on our site, which does not reveal your personal contact information.

Once you are interested in becoming the Au Pair for a particular Host Family a Skype video interview should be arranged. A Host Family that refuses a video interview may not be who they claim to be in their profile.

A Host Family that does not ask many questions is suspicious. A family that immediately offers you a role and requests your contact details should be avoided.
