After graduating with a degree in Art History, Andrew decided to teach English in Taiwan. He grew up in Australia and has studied abroad in Italy.

Unfortunately, it has come to our attention that individuals are using our logo and company name to scam people into paying money for Au Pair opportunities in the United States. The scams are variations of au pair job opportunities with "Go Overseas Corporate Travel." As part of this scam these individuals are asking for money transfers to pay for "visa" and "program" fees. Do not pay them!

Things to watch out for:

  • Emails from gooverseas@protonmail.com or any non @gooverseas.com emails.
  • Mr. Philip Taylor or Mr. Kevin Anthony with WhatsApp number +1 416-907-4179 or +1 (415) 887-2398
  • Mentions of company “Go Overseas Corporate Travel”
  • Andrew Dunkle as "Host specialist"
  • Au Pair job opportunities in the Facebook group Daily Jobs in "Gulf"

We encourage our users to be wary of internet scammers and please reach out to info@gooverseas.com if you are questioning the validity of any emails or correspondence from Go Overseas.

We are saddened to learn that our users have been affected by this scam and its predatory practices. We are working with the appropriate authorities to try and shut this down as soon as possible, this is proving difficult as we believe these individuals are operating out of South Asia, outside of our legal jurisdictions here in the United States. We want to make this information as public as possible to help people avoid this scam. We are genuinely upset that people are preying upon the good intentions of our users for personal gain, and we will do everything we can to help prevent it.

InterExchange has also put together an excellent article on How To Protect Yourself From Au Pair Fraud that's worth a read.
