Solved our childcare issues
24 March 2014
Reviewer: Jeremy Burrowes from London

Thanks to Findababysitter they solved our nanny issues. our old nanny needed to leave in a hurry and we needed an afterschool nanny who could speak spanish (to continue teaching our eldest the language) and drive. After posting an ad and getting LOTS of responses we found the perfect nanny. No agency fee's! We're happy. Definitely recommend.

In summary, I would recommend Find A Babysitter to a friend.

Do not use this company!

Last year ( 2012) I registered with FindaBabysitter.com. I did eventually find a solution to my childcare but not through this website. However, I gave it a go and thought nothing more of it. Several months passed and then I noticed that since June 2013 ( presumably a year after I originally registered) that £25 was being taken out of my account on a monthly basis. A total of £150 has been deducted over 6 months. My bank discovered this was being done through a process called "auto renewal". This is not a direct debit and you have to contact the company to stop it. My bank is not impressed with this practice by companies that have credit/debit card details and use it to deduct sums of money from client's accounts without notifying them. Citizens Advice similarly were concerned and were passing details of my case to Trading Standards. My bank gave me a telephone number to ring but all I got was an email address. Using the email address the response was my money could not be refunded but they would cease taking anything further from my account ( which I will check!!). They... (Read the full review)

Pay hundreds of ££ just for few day's service - STAY AWAY!!

Findababysitter.com seems to be a big fraudulent company in exploring your credit card or account. They are only keen to promote their services, but hide all the details about 'AUTO MONTHLY RENEWALS' in small print. I subscribed at the beginning of this year for few day's service, which I didn't finally take from them anyway. What they did was put me on auto renewal ( and yes, you cannot opt out from it, there is no choice). It appeared as FAB until June/July in credit card statement, so we didn't even notice. Only recently we spotted and contacted them. They have cancelled the account but refused to return any money. They don't end any notification when the account is renewed, so unless you are scrutinising diligently all your bank account, credit card statements every month, you would be exploited.

That's nearly £200 that we have paid for which we haven't even used any service. STAY AWAY!! I am going to write to OFT, trading standard, my credit card co.

If you register for any service, immediately contact them to cancel auto renewal.

In summary, I would not recommend Find A Babysitter to a friend.
