Care.com - Fake posts

Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
I apply to at least 20 posts a week for caregivers. Not ONE bite on my applications. I went back and looked over the last 2 months and the names at the end of the post are all the same! There might be 3 legitimate posts out of 30. And forget getting ahold of anybody at the customer service number! This company really needs to be looked at by the BBB....

I did nothing and they closed my account. People tell care.com about you and I never even met these people and my account is closed. I called care.com and they told me that they have the right to close anyone's account. I'm hurt and they are as bad as the scammer that got me blocked....

I got several calls from clients who were moving to my city from other places who needed someone to take care of a loved one. I accepted 2 jobs and we talked through emails or texts. One client mailed me a check one sent me a cashiers check. The first one insisted that I deposit the check into my account instead of cashing it which drew red flags for me. The other sent me a cashiers check in which the last name was spelled differently on the check then the name I was given. I took the first one to the bank and discussed it with a bank manager who confirmed it was fraudulent. I did the same with...

Care.com - Shady loopholes and awful service

I wish I had looked up reviews before creating an account on care.com.

The site interface and experience seemed okay, but as you sign up, you are prompted over and over to join their premium service, which will run up a bill of $40 a month minimum, and renew automatically.

I'm not sure on what planet a person needs a constant roster of potential babysitters emailing them with no end in sight, but the company seems to think this is how childcare works.

I had chose the most basic access that was 30-days long, but in order to post a job I had and respond...

Care.com - Maryland, CHESTER, MARYLAND - Continuous Charing of Credit Cards without permission

They initially offer their services as free but ask for a credit card number. What they don't tell you, and you have to go through the entire site to fine, in small print, that the credit card will be continued to be charged monthly without any notification whether or not you use their services.

This was discovered when I went to my bank account only to find it was at a negative balance.
As I live on social security and get gov't support for food and electricity, this was a cost that has put me in a bad financial situation.

I hope someone, or some agency...

I posted an ad looking for someone to walk my dog in my area. I had 10 responses within a couple of hours. These poor young people who go to school looking for some extra money. These people who ALL love animals who DESERVED a reply back. I COULD NOT REPLY BACK UNLESS I PAID CARE.COM money. You MUST UPGRADE = PAY MONEY to reply to someone about someone you wish to hire. In a nut shell to post an add, this should be fully disclosed on the first screen when you put your ad information in there. They tease you lie to you. I spoke to so many people who have waited for a job, who have NEVER been contacted...

Care.com - Background checks was wrong

Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
I ordered a background check on a care giver and it came back clean. Then after about a week my wife insisted I do another check with another company and her background came back with several arrests for prostitution and drug arrests. I reported it back to Care.com and was kicked off the website. I looked into the background check company that issued the bad check that was given to me.. THIS SHOULD BE ENOUGH INFORMATION FOR PARENTS NEVER TO CONSIDER USING CARE.COM

I wanted to just say that my nanny friend, she worked for the same family I did for many years. Lost her job with a wonderful family because of a Care.com employee. My friend was hired from a reputable nanny service Nanny pro. The reason she was let go is because the child died while in care of a last minute Care.com babysitter that filled in for her. The Caregiver was arrested and let go on bail. Her blood came back with a variety of drugs and alcohol. The cause of death was blunt force trauma to the abdomen and internal bleeding. Care.com cancelled the parents account when they called the customer...

MISREPRESENTED CAREGIVERS, FAKE CHECKS, FAKE REVIEWS, UNAUTHORIZED BILLING, UNSUPPORTED BACKGROUND CHECKS. I looked into this after realizing the caregiver I hired was a homeless drunk/drug addict living in her car. I reported this to Care.com and they terminated my membership 15 minutes later..I just opened my credit card statement today and realized they billed my for another 2 months after they closed my account. I called Care.com said they did not bill me and to take it up with the credit card company? WHAT? I have the statement right in front of me! Its not a credit it is a charge. IT SAYS...

Care.com - membership scam

When you sign up for a 30 day membership, you think that it expires in 30 days, right? Nope, it's a scam. If you read the VERY SMALL print, you realize that you are actually agreeing to a monthly subscription, for which your credit card will be automatically charged. This practice is actually illegal in some states. When I finally realized how much I was being charged (long after I stopped using the website), they stood by their practice of scamming people and would not reimburse me. Being in the business of childcare, I would assume that being ethical and establishing trust with your customer...

Care.com is an unethical fraudulent company. Many people have their heads in the sand about how far Care.com will go to cover up complaints and erase bad reviews. The is one lady "K" on Jabbersite for instance that has a full time job making rebuttles on comments and apologizing with then standard boilerplate response of "we are not responsible for anything". Care.com will terminate any parent or babysitters account that puts in a bad review (unless it is a not so important review of no relevance) by shutting down the page to cover up all negative remarks... This keeps the caregivers page free of...

Care.com - Fraud and unsupported information

Care.com is essentially an appalling scam. After reading many reviews about this company on several pages I decided to do an investigation to see how much of this was true. It was all true, every bit of it. I myself was tricked with the bait and switch predatory auto renew billing tactics. Here is a list of issues that many parents and babysitter have.

1- Auto renew billing that is hidden in small grey font. Sign up for one month at $35 and pay for the rest of your life trick.

2-Termination of both parents and caregivers accounts with no refund or explanation.

Care.com steals money from hard working parents then lies about it. The bait and switch auto renew billing buried in a light grey font seems to be how they are scamming the public. NO E receipt is provided when billed. Care.com advertises as a free account then quickly wants a credit card..Now most people know this is common practice these days however Care.com is making millions by scamming parents. Very deceitful, very unethical and highly illegal. Some busy parents have signed up for one month trial and end up paying for 2 years not knowing. That is just the start to this dirty, dirty business....

Care.com - Misrepresentation of verified caregivers

I am appalled at the lack of qualified caregivers on Care.com. Most are stay at home moms or college kids that have no interest in being a caregiver or qualifications at all. I have asked several so called nannies now for proof of citizenship, the CPR Card and even just a legit photo Id or a drivers license and most could not produce even one of these. Care.com clearly does not pre screen anyone. I have found out the hard way that more illegals and criminals are posing as nannies and babysitters than legit caregivers. This is a disaster is the making. I am dumbfounded about how any parents would...

Care.com is under investigation by the federal trade commission for a very long, dirty laundry list of fraud, scams and corruption. Multiple class actions suits are at their doors. Stocks are plummeting and investors are running for the hills. Sheila marcelo's future just might be back in the good old phillipeans. Hope she gets what coming to her....

Care.com is a fraudulent misrepresented company that uses unsupported background checks for caregivers that are wrong incomplete and not even verified at all at times. The backgrounds are completed with a DL# punched in the computer by the caregiver from her home. NO REAL ID IS EVER SEEN FROM ANYONE. Anyone can punch in anyones DL# and produce a clean record. Care.com uses unethical business tactics in everything they do. They are ripping off the American public with the bait and switch marketing tactics and then when anyone should could complain about anything CAREGIVER OR PARENT the account is...

I just wanted to let care.com know I was just fired from a babysitting job for redic reasons! April k. On Feb 21 posted a need for a babysitter. I worked there 3 weeks. On the 4th week one of her kids scratched and damaged my car. I simply asked them if they could do something about it due to the fact that our insurance deductible is 500$. That's all I said. I texted them pics of the damage becuz when I told him on the day it happened he didn't bother to even look at it.he called two days later and said that you can't hold a minor responsible and he was "advised" to not do anything...

I had five people respond to my ad for pet walking. I interview them and hired Amanda's critter sitting. I asked ahead of time about her transportation, if it was too far to travel, if she was sure she wanted job for pay. She agreed. Then she handed me contract to sign that said if she got hurt while walking my dog I was 100% liable. LAWSUIT is the first thing I thought. I would not sign. Then she was suppose to bring dog shampoo and poop bags... She forgot. My husband went to store. She made me wait four hours for her interview past when she was suppose to arrive. Then after totally setting...
