I am new to this site, but could anyone give me any info about this lady. She has been recommended to me for some in home care for my family, but have heard some troubling info concerning her work ethic. Please help if you know of anything that would keep me from wanting her to be employed to help with ailing relative.

I did home health care and in home day care in the past. I gave personal references to all of my potential clients and parents. All of my parents were allowed to show up at anytime,even if their child was not present that day. You could always use a Nanny Cam. Ask her about how she feels about you talking to all of her past clients. Hope this helps.

If she is reliable and trustworthy she shouldnt have any trouble providing you with references that you can speak with. BE VERY CAREFUL! I hired someone who provided references as well as a police background check. Her references turned out to be relatives that lied for her. It turned into a nightmare for my family. Fortunately we realized she was a truly horrible person before any irrepairable (sp?) damage was done and fired her on the spot.
please

Do not hire this woman....she is a thief. If you check with GC Police she has had numerous complaints. She is especially fond of rings.

Must take a really big person to cut down another without proof. Whatever happened in the past people can change their ways. If she's going to church she must be trying to be a better person. The accusations I've read is unfounded and slanderous. You need to consentrate on your own lives and stop slandering some one elses life.

Go to this Madison County Illinois Public Records Search, put in her last name. It will show any previous legal issues.

You can say people need to concentrate on their own lives, but what about the people that were doing just that and fell victim to this person? People change? Yes they do. Just because she goes to church doesn't mean she has changed. She has always went to church and still done this stuff. So is she your friend? How well do u really know her? If u have her around your family I would second guess that decision. What is more important, her being your friend or making sure that the people you have around you and your family are good people? With all of the people on her saying things about her, I would definitely owe it to my family to check into it before subjecting them to it. That is all i am going to say. You either take it or leave it, doesn't make any difference to me. But how do u know if these people have proof or not? They are not going to put all of their business on here. They are just trying to warn people, which is what good citizens would do. Just ask a GC cop if u need your own proof. Also it is not slander if it is an opinion or if it is true.

Could not have said it better myself. Apparently "Julie Jones" or none of her loved ones have been conned by Mary Upton, or she would not be so quick to jump to Mary's defense. She has conned my family on a day right after attending Sunday service supposedly. Now granted, maybe her "church" of choice is the Alton Belle or Casino Queen. Whatever the case, one of my loved one has been the victum of her con job of selling herself as a upstanding lady that just needed some temporary help to get her car fix or surgery for her "brain tumor". I hate to think the wrath God has for her when she stands before him and has to answer for her treatment of kindhearted elderly people that thought she honest enough for them to hire her for home health care! Hope someone get enough evidence to get her in the courts and prosecuted, Lord knows I would be glad to testify to her crazy antics! Hope it doesn't end up with some old person getting really sick or worse before she can be stopped.

You want to slander someone yet you have not got the spine to say who you are. You have no evidance to support your accusations. You need to stop the "slander" before you get yourself in trouble. I am an legal professional & referring her to councel. All of your accusations or gossip are slanderous & unfounded.

It's not gossip if it lands in the public records of Madison County, Illinois.

I will make sure never to use you as my legal professional. It is a requirement of mine that any legal professional that I utilize, be able to properly spell and type without grammatical errors. Your errors were not accidentally typed. Lol
It is concentrate, counsel, and evidence but good try. Oh and you may need to look into when quotes should be used. By you saying "slander" your pretty much contradicting yourself. Ha and that is not all of the errors but its a start. Also I find it funny that a "legal professional" would waste their time on topix.

Ok, Miss Professional Jones, as far as referring her to counsel, she doesn't want to get anywhere near a lawyer, judge or policeman because they are ALL watching her like a hawk just waiting for her to make a mistake and then she is going to have to answer for her less than ethical treatment of older people that she is supposed to be so concerned about. Lets just say I have spoken to one nice officer that actually called out to California in my presence to talk to the parole board out there! No, I'm not going to give you my name, out of concern for innocent parties that she might take it out on.n Although, it would be hard for her to decide since she has conned so many innocent people in her life time. That is why she has to keep moving from state to state. Too many trails follow her! Guess I'm not falling for that church going Christian image she is trying to fool folks with. But if you are sooo concerned about her treatment from others, you might want to move in with her and keep her out of trouble, as she seems to be drawn to it. Better yet, let her move in with you, that's what she likes to do. I take comfort in knowing that there are "eyes" out there all over Madison and St. Clair county just patiently waiting for her to slip up, ie.Collinsville,Edwardsville,G len Carbon,Troy,St. Jacob,Wood River, Alton,Bethalto,Granite City, even her own little paradise of Mitchell. Now, you have a nice Valentine's day, but I wouldn't buy anything from Mary out of that car trunk of hers even if she is running a V-day special, because it is as hot as the place she will end up for her treatment of the elderly!
