A *WARNING* about my ex-nanny, Courtney M in the East Bay, CA. We had the suspicion that she was going through our things in the last few weeks she was with us but gave her the benefit of the doubt because we trusted her. On her next to last day here, she admitted on her own accord to going through our personal items. She said she found mine and my husband's journals and was reading it all. In that location, there was also all of our financial information and identity information. Later that evening, I discovered that she took my journal to our neighbors home across the hall and sat down and they read it together! Not sure where was my son was when all this transpired but obviously he was not getting the care and attention I paid her for. Both, my neighbor and nanny are guilty of invasion of private property, slander and defamation. I filed a police report for petty theft since she committed a crime when she left our home with my property. In addition, we suspect she had been reading our journals for a few months and possibly sharing this extremely private information with my neighbor beforehand, possibly collecting financial information and taking inventory as well. I would like to share this with other parents so they do not have to experience this breech of trust or put their children in this compromising situation. Thanks.
