Scammers and Fraud
Identity fraud occurs when someone makes illegal use of your personal data. Babysits never asks for your personal data. Should an unknown user request your personal data, please report this to us immediately as it could be an attempt at fraud.
How can you prevent fraud as a user?
- Don’t give information about yourself to other users that you don't know well or trust.
- Be careful with personal information such as passport details, email addresses, phone numbers, resumés, etc.
- If you are approached by an organization, you should first find out more about the organization. If you are unable to find information about the organization, then you should be wary of potential fraud.
- Never transfer money to someone you have never met.
