Wow!!!! This conversation is getting more than thrilling it is just incredible! What is a Numbian Urbanite BTW?
I don't know it is the copycat that does this. I also suspect this individual uses several different names as the writing is similar.

Anyway, getting back to the story, I agree that the families should have asked the nanny for references and should hve called them. A criminal background check isn't needed, but references are. Regarding that family in Cos Cob who is the most recent family to hire the nanny--I'm sure if they had called her previous employers they would have clued them in on the fact that the nanny steals checks.
Perhaps the family was trying to avoid an agency fee. I remember AISF was on Greenwich Avenue back in the 70s and 80s, and had a great reputation for hiring students from Europe who worked as nannies.

Do you really think she would have given the names of the people that she stole from or fired her as references?

Most people who work with kids (teachers, school bus drivers etc) do submit to criminal background checks and a separate check to ensure they aren't sex offenders.

Humble, the new employers should have required her to give them the names of her previous employers. If you leave something off your resume, a red flag should go up. So if the nanny didn't want to list the employers she stole from, she'd have to think of something else to replace that block of time in the resume. Anyway, this story is a good lesson in being a conscientious consumer.
And easter bunny, you are thinking of Royal Domestics, which specializes in maids, and that incident happened in 2001, a good 20 years after AISF was in Greenwich.

I can only count to nine cause one of my fingers is always up my nose.
