One Family Is Offering an $84,000 Income for a Nanny, But There’s a Spooky Catch


A post on is going viral for one very spooky reason.

One lovely Scottish family is looking for a nanny for their two little children, and they’re willing to pay a very substantial salary.

But there’s a catch. Oh boy, is there a catch.

A family of four who lives in the Scottish Borders is on the search for a au pair.

It’s a fine looking house, and the post starts out quite normal and beautiful:

We are looking for an exceptional live-in nanny to join our friendly family of four in the Scottish Borders.

We have 2 children ages 5 and 7, and live in a lovely, spacious, historic property with spectacular views.

Duties would include preparing breakfast, getting the children ready for school, dropping off and picking up from school and assisting after school, including helping with homework and getting them ready for bed.

So far, so good.

My husband and I are both very busy professionals who are often required to work away and there are occasions, up to 4 nights per week, (weekdays only) when we will both be away and you will be at the property alone in sole charge.

You will be provided with your own comfortable room with en-suite bathroom and private kitchen.

We are offering a salary of £50,000 gross per annum and 28 days holiday (plus bank holidays) for the right person.

£50,000 comes out to about $84,000, a very generous salary.
