has anyone heard of an underground/secret list on the internet created by nannies listing whom NOT to work for? i have been searching for a nanny, and a woman i interviewed told me i am on the list. yikes! it's crazy because i have had the same nanny for 5 1/2 years. AND my nanny doesnt use the internet and doesnt speak a lot of Enlgish!

Did you do a background search? This is the most important thing that you can do. Did she have at least three references? Did you check her references? Did you hire her through a service? If so, did they check her background and are they willing to share that info with you? Does she have only a SS number or did she show you a card? Does she have a green card? Did you call her last five employers?

If you find that all of the information checks out with the person but you are still a little leery of hiring her, then do not hire her. You need to hire a person that you can trust which your children. The fact that you find yourself questioning her to the extent that you would post about wanting to find such a list tells me that you are leery of her and should not hire her.

no i am not hiring the woman who told me about it. i just want to sleuth out this "list." sounds very new york if anything - so i asked my NY sister to ask her nanny to ask around the circuit. but the more i think about the more i think the woman who told me about is full of sh*t. if it's so secret, why would she tell me and break the code among nannies? my sister thinks it's some kind of scam to get money out of me!

ISawYourNanny.blogspot.com I think this might be what they were talking about. It helped knowing it was NY.
