Complaint >> Posted: Jun 16 ''18 by Cenaca in Texas, United States
She was the worse nanny from hell. She is a liar, thief and half does the job. First she lied to us about being a nonsmoker. After about 2 months we found out she was a smoker because she went out one night and came home smelling just like weed. Then the next week she used our car and left pieces of mariguana in a car and our car smelled like weed. She lied again saying that she wasn't smoking in car and she had only rolled up the drugs in our car. We talked about it and we were very disappointed that she lied to us. We are non-smokers and the smell of smoke gives me a headache so this was very unacceptable. We started the process of looking for another nanny because we felt like she wasn't a good fit for our family and to be around our kids. However, I didn't fire her immediately because I wanted to find a replacement first but I should have just fired her on the spot. The next week all hell broke lose. She took advantage of my mother who is mentally unstable and my mother told her she could have her car. Mind you my mother was not in her right mind when she told her this because she is no longer taking her meds and she had a mental breakdown. My ex nanny took her car and would not give it back and she left our home driving a stolen car which belongs to my mom. I called the police and filed a police report of the incident. The next day we changed our locks and she came back to the house when I was not home. She broke into our home by jumping our back fence and entered through our back door. She stole my laptop and who knows what else and took all her clothes and left. Now there is a warrant out for her arrest for Theft of residense and possible theft of vehicle because I am in the process of getting a full power of attorney over my mother. On top of this she was a horrible nanny and I constantly had to find activities and things for my kids to do because she would just sit them in front of the TV all day which is not what I wanted from a nanny. Please beware of this horrible fake nanny.
