We found no complaints, other than one gripe from a nanny who got taken by a check fraud and thought the site should have done a better job warning people. Let us warn you: If a prospective employer sends you a check that’s for more than the cost of your services and asks you to refund the excess to them “after the check clears,” DON’T DO IT. This is a popular scam that is prevalent on both job and sales sites (like eBay and CraigsList). This story at CBS News explains how it works.
