No problem. I will deposit the check to the bank now and if ever I can cash out the money... I'll go directly to theWestern Union and give you the details. But if ever the check will be cash out after 2 days... I can go to Western Union after 2 days. Thank you so much for the immediate reply Tim.

Hello Tim!

I just received the envelope from UPS and I just want to ask, if I'll bring this check to the bank, will they automatically cash it out? For some checks will take 2 to 3 days before we can cash it out. I'll wait for your reply.

Tim, I've just received your e-mail and as I've checked outside the apartment, the UPS has just left an InfoNotice letter posted outside the apartment. They didn't even get inside the building and just left the notice that they will be back by Monday before 10:30 A.M. so I'll just wait by then this Monday. By the way if you don't mind Tim, may I know where would be the address of your apartment here in New York so I have the idea to where I'll be working?

    It's a scam. The bank teller told me if I knew the person who send the check and how did I got the check. And then that's it! She told me what I have to know how dangerous it is and I was so scared but thankful at the same time before it was too late.

    Sittercity is a scam, Babysitting jobs are false advertising, they lie and say they are matchmakers, but they are not, Parents dont even know you exist if you are not on the first page results. It sucks, save your money, before using them and protect yourself from Identity Theft. Complaints keep coming and coming from my friends. Do not use sittercity.

    Hi, I am a member of sittercity and I wanted to thank this guys because it's the best website ever. I found 2 part time jobs for myself and four friends of mine are actually working as babysitters only because of sittercity. They tried different employment agencies and they never found something. Me and my friends are grateful to sittercity.

    Sitter city sucks, I totally fell into a scam really similar to the one on the top, and now I'm going to have to face soooo many consequences. I gave them 2, 600 on a freaking vanilla reload card. it sucks the whole situation.

    I did not authorize recurring charges to my credit card and just discovered many months of charges. I have not used the site.
