Woman falls victim to nanny scam in Murfreesboro

  Email   Print

A local woman who told Murfreesboro Police she posted her job resume online was hit with fraud. The victim told officer T. Womack of the MPD that she posted the resume on CraigsList and at first was happy to be contacted by a man who introduced himself as "Ronald Schneider."

Schneider told the victim that he is moving into the area from New York and needed a nanny for his children. The two agreed on $10 an hour. The man then told the 21-year old woman that he would be sending her a check for $1,900 to purchase a list of supplies for the house he would soon be moving into.

After the woman deposited the money, Schneider told her to place $300 on a pre-paid card and then tell him the card pin number. Needless to say, she followed his directions. The following day, she received notice from the bank that informed her she now has a negative balance of $1,900. The bank told the victim the $1,900 check she deposited was a fake. So far, the man who suggested his name was Schneider has not been caught and the victim is responsible for her negative balance.
