The McCarthys found out after Groves allegedly used their credit card that the woman they let into their Chamble home to watch their son and later take care of their dog had had a string of criminal charges in several metro Atlanta counties, even though she appeared to check out on Care.com.
“Reading her glowing reviews, I figured she would be perfect,” Keating McCarthy told Channel 2.
The McCarthys said Groves, who went by the name Regina Christopher on Care.com, tried to open several credit card accounts with their information, and then boxes began arriving at their home with merchandise the couple didn’t order.
They contacted the police after Groves dropped off their dog when the couple returned from the beach.They learned Groves was also wanted on various charges in four metro counties: DeKalb, Fulton, Cherokee and Douglas.
On Tuesday, Douglas County online jail records showed Groves remained behind bars after being booked Aug. 1 on a probation violation charge. She also has pleaded guilty to obstruction, Channel 2 reported.
