A 42/f answered an online ad for a nanny/housekeeper. She filled out a job application (which included her name, birthdate, Social Security Number and address - and returned it. She was “hired” and the other party sent her a check. She was instructed to deposit the check and wire some of the cash back and keep the rest. Her bank told her the check was fraudulent. The report does not state whether the bank determined the check was fake before or after she deposited it.
A 30/f says three neighborhood kids keep coming onto her property and stealing things. She says she’s confronted them and told them to stay off her property, but they still keep taking things.
A 31/f teacher at Hadley Middle School says a student, who is described as having an emotional disorder, punched and shoved her. The student then pushed another person (report does not state whether the second person was a student or another staff member) who tried to help. Both suffered minor injuries. The student was arrested on two counts of battery and destruction of property charges.
A 32/f says she worked with an agency to have someone conceive children for her in exchange for money.
