House Manager

DDC – Due Diligence Consulting was engaged to conduct a thorough background check of a house manager for a vacation home of a wealthy European family.  The house manager’s references were checked by the client and DDC was told that the references were “terrific”.

DDC found that the woman was living with convicted felon (assault / battery / domestic violence) and that she may be in the USA illegally.  DDC recommended that the client ask her for a copy of her passport or visa.  The client did so and never heard from the woman again.

Who is taking care of your children?

We recently researched a person tasked with caring for the children of a prominent hedge fund manager.  The caregiver has been driving an unregistered vehicle for 2 years and has extremely poor credit, with multiple liens and judgements.  In addition, the caregiver was previously operating an unlicensed business, a felony offense in the state it had operated in.

You never know…

Last month DDC found that the house manager for an estate in FL owned by well known billionaire was moonlighting as an unlicensed massage therapist and prostitute over several years.  The house manager’s boyfriend was also in the same line of “work”.

In order to best protect your family’s privacy and security, please always check out your household staff before you hire them.  You never know what DDC will find.
