This is an email from a scammer who is using the name of a real Au Pair Agency:

Recently we have learned that there are people pretending to be with InterExchange in an attempt to scam au pair candidates and get money from them.

These scam operators are using the InterExchange name and fake host family information to seem like a legitimate company - they are not.

Do not send any money or your personal information to anybody!
