Complaint >> Posted: Jun 28 '15 by Sean in New Jersey, United States
Ana was welcomed into our home under the notion that she wanted a nanny position. We paid for her flight from Nashua, NH to Philadelphia, PA, to come nanny for our children. She never complained about the pay or anything else. We found it odd that she never wanted to spend any time with us when she wasn't working and spent all of her time in here room talking on the phone. This morning, after being here for approximately 6 weeks, she left with her suitcase saying that a friend was going back to Brazil and was going to take some things back for her mother. My wife saw her waiting at the curb for a cab and offered to take her to meet her friend. She accepted the ride and asked to be dropped at a train station to get in to Philadelphia where her friend supposedly was. She mentioned that she wanted to send some things home to her mother, even asking for a pay advance last week. We thought nothing of it and my wife actually felt sorry for her because one of the things that she was supposedly sending home was her camera phone for her mom to use. So my wife bought her a Nikon Coolpix camera as a gift because she wanted to do something nice. Thankfully, the camera hadn't arrived by this morning. When she hadn't returned for her scheduled shift, my wife went up to her room to check to see if she had her cell phone. She found the room completely cleaned out with the cell phone and house key placed on the dresser. She had apparently planned this for weeks and lied right to our faces about it. What a terrible, dishonest person. Don't trust her with anything, certainly not your home and your family.
