Many of the families posting nannies on our page have asked what Mommybites could do to better protect the beloved nannies being listed on our nanny page from the ever increasing and sophisticated scams that have started targeting nannies on public pages like ours. So in response to this and in an effort to better protect the nannies, Mommybites has been advised to start charging a nominal one-time fee of $10 for unlimited access to the nanny contact information. All comments, location, hour preferences etc. are still open and available to anyone viewing the nanny page. The only difference now is that if someone wants to contact the nanny directly they will be brought to a special page on our website.
We are happy to report that since adding this step of added security the moms looking to hire nannies have been extremely receptive to this, as the feeling has been it has helped maintain the integrity of a nanny board that has been connecting nannies with loving families for over 7 years! Here is an article we recommend you share with your nanny, especially if you are posting her on other public boards that do not have added security measures.
This article posted by the Better Business Bureau, gives an idea about why we are charging a nominal fee to view a nanny's contact information: 7 Reasons why added Security Is Important on a Nanny Board.
