This person text-ed me he found my profile on Care.com. We then emailed back and forth for about a week. He told me he was in realest and his wife has skin cancer and they were moving home for treatment. He said they had a 3yrs old daughter Amy who needed a nanny. He'll ask you zip code for "distance" and normal job interview questions, he'll ask about your trustworthiness, experience ect. He will ask you to help him ship things from eBay and purchase towels, soap, bedding, and some groceries. He's very short with details, I asked when and where, what hours, when it would start so I could give notice at my current employer. He said they would be arriving in a weeks time but gave me the start date 2weeks out. He will ask you for your personal info to send you a check in advance. Name on check : Address (ONLY RESIDENTIAL ADDRESS PLEASE) : City, State & Zip Code : Mobile Phone number : I did my research after that and found the previous post about John Bishop and declined the offer!
