In search of a full time live-in nanny for my children, we interviewed Lauren Kilby and offered her an opportunity to work on a two week trial period at a reduced rate of $300 for 30 hours per week. She was a recent grad of Georgia State and said that she needed the experience. We informed her that if everything worked out, we would pay her living expenses and increase her pay to $400/ week plus $50 for gas. I gave her a detailed description of the job and trained her for the first three days of work. We were impressed at how eager she appeared to want to work and become a part of our family.

I contacted her on a personal level and offered her the opportunity to work on a trial basis to see if the position served the best interest of all parties involved. Reggie Garrett is my fiance who assisted me with choosing her but he nor LaShay Properties, LLC, "Shay Your Date Diva Show", singlemomsdatingguide.com or Que Enterprises had no participation with the transactions, communications and disagreement with Lauren Kilby. She worked on a trial basis as a 1099 contract employee.

We soon realized that we had made a poor choice in selecting Lauren Kilby. She was often late to work which means that she was late getting the kids to school. She did not make a whole hearted effort to produce high quality work and she got into a car accident with the kids in the back seat. The next day she notified me that she wanted to go out with her friends even though her schedule stated that she was to work that evening. Lauren Kilby became frustrated with not being able to go out with her friends that evening, dealing with an active 3 year old and our request for her car insurance information. In frustration, she asked to speak with us while still in her night clothes and notified us that the 3 year old was "too much work" and that she could not accept the position. We accepted her resignation, she got dressed, gathered her things and left.

The next day she contacted my fiance for money and said that we owed her $500. I paid her a week earlier than agreed a $100 more than agreed because she expressed that she was having financial difficulties and needed the money. I told her that I would be more than happy to pay her what we agreed minus the $100 advance if she could submit her 1099 information to me. In an effort to maintain peace, my fiance even offered her an additional $200 but she was determined to not produce the information we needed in order to report her pay on my taxes.

Lauren Kilby is young and still has a lot to learn. I offered her the opportunity because I am always looking for ways to give back and help others trying to get on their feet. As a relationship expert and author, this is what I do on a daily basis http://www.youtube.com/lovein30days. I even tried helping her with her challenging relationship issues but she let her short term challenges interfere with long term opportunities.

We are very disappointed with this incident as it has escalated to harassing calls, relentless emails, trespassing and a counter suit. Lauren Kilby took advantage of our kindness and saw my fiances' professional golf career and my rising speaking and writing activities as an opportunity for her to black mail us into giving her more money.  Recently we received a phone call from her current employers who were experiencing the same work ethic from Lauren.  They have probably let her go by now.  Our only hope is that no other family is taken advantage of and abused as we were by Ms. Kilby. We have no hard feelings against her and we pray for her and wish her the best.

#1 REBUTTAL Owner of company

Lauren Kilby

AUTHOR: Lauren Kilby - (United States of America)

To any prospective families/clients reading this Rip off Report posting,

I sincerely ask that you read through the entire report (including initial reports, attached documents, and report rebuttals). A relative of Lauren Kilby originally posted the 1st Rip off Report on Shaquannah Williams in 2009. I truly regret that they did that b/c it has been a career nightmare since then. I am a reputable , educated Nanny with references that has sincerely been retaliated against because I sued a client in small claims court for non payment of services. I know this report looks very drama and scary, but the true facts are I was Nanny for a family that did not/or could not pay for my services. They misrepresented their financial status as con artist and I was taken advantage of, and not paid. This happens many times on numerous websites. As years have past, I practice much more discretion when interviewing with families looking for Household staff.

This false report has truly had a negative effect on many job opportunities, and I just ask that you contact me before making a final decision to not contact me regarding your position.

Thanks, Lauren Kilby 404-661-1369

PLEASE go to the Original Posting that was posted on Wednesday, March 25, 2009. Rip Off Report: #437669 http://www.ripoffreport.com/employment-services/que-enterprises-shay/que-enterprises-shay-n-will-823yb.htm

This is another Retaliatory act to smear Lauren Kilby name since she won her suit and judgment against Shay Williams and Reggie Garrett on November 2, 2009 (Please note this was a before this posting date)

It saddens me that Shaquannah (Shay) N. Williams and Reggie Garrett are able to mistreat people, and then try to seek justice for them selves. Luckily, we live in a society with a fair justice system that will not allow criminals to avail. To date, Shay Williams has continuously lied, harassed and defamed Lauren Kilby and her name. She has posted countless false accusations on other nanny sites regarding Lauren Kilby, which has causes Miss Kilby to lose several job opportunities. Additionally, neither Shay Williams nor Reggie Garrett has tendered payment to Lauren Kilby for her services she provided in March 2009. Lauren Kilby has not commented on any of Shay Williams or Reggie Garrett personal or business sites, nor has she posted on any websites about them. She ceased contact with them after her final demand for payment letter in late March. On March 31 2009 Lauren Kilby filed a suit against Shay Williams, Reggie Garrett, and GoNannies.com for payment of services, harassment, lack of due process, defamation, interference with advantageous relations and slander. The suit also included notice to Shay Williams and Reggie Garrett of improper employee classification based on IRS codes and the violation of Wage and Labor Laws.

 After evading service from US Marshals for well over a month, Shay Williams and Reggie Garrett were finally served. After they were served, Shay retaliated with making false accusations and starting smear campaign against Lauren Kilby.

PLEASE go to the Original Posting that was posted on Wednesday, March 25, 2009. Rip Off Report: #437669 http://www.ripoffreport.com/employment-services/que-enterprises-shay/que-enterprises-shay-n-will-823yb.htm

Around early June, Shay Williams answered the suit with many improperly used legal jargon, and false allegations. The other defendant Gonannies.com of Texas also answered the suit. And Reggie Garrett never answered. All parties attended the first court date on September 3, 2009 and were summoned to mediation. The judge believed that the issue was minuet and could be resolved, with payment being rendered to Lauren Kilby for her services. Lauren Kilby attended mediation with an open heart and mind, however it was a disaster! Shay Williams and Reggie Garrett stormed out and would not sign any documents from the mediator. They also were getting irate with the mediator. In the mediation it was also reconfirmed that Shay Williams and Reggie Garrett made several false statements and they were not obeying IRS and Wage & Labor rules.

The following are inconsistencies or reconfirmation:

1.) In Shay Williams answer to the suit she stated that Lauren Kilby was not an employee but a volunteer, and she did not hire her on a trial basis, however in the above mention postings, and a Letter to Lauren Kilby, Shay Williams says... we interviewed Lauren Kilby and offered her an opportunity to work on a two week trial period

2.) In Shay Williams answer to the suit she stated that Reggie Garrett had nothing to do with the hiring of Lauren Kilby and Lauren Kilby was only the nanny for her two kids. Shay stated in the above posting... Reggie Garrett is my fianc who assisted me with choosing her.

3.) In Shay Williams answer to the suit she stated, she paid Lauren Kilby for her all services, however in the above posting Shay states I owed her a remaining balance Shay states I told her that I would be more than happy to pay her what we agreed minus the $100 advance if she could submit her 1099 information to me. There was no ADVANCE given to Kilby.

Since there was no resolution in mediation the case was sent back to the courts. Kilby and all the defendants received ample notice of court date and a service was rendered to all parties. On November 2, 2009 Lauren Kilby won her suit and a judgment against Shay Williams and Reggie Garrett. Shay Williams did not win any counterclaim against Kilby.

The outcomes of the case are as follows...

1.) Shay Williams and Reggie Garrett did not provide sufficient evidence that they did not owe Lauren Kilby payment from her services

2.) Shay Williams slandered Lauren Kilbys name with the additional posting of outside negative comments that were not affiliated to the Gonannies.com site (*the judge felt this was slander because Shay did not find Lauren Kilby on the other sites that Williams posted the negative comments and false accusations on Shay only had the right to post a review on Gonannies.com any additional post was slander and defamation)

3.) Lauren Kilby did not contact Shay Williams or Reggie Garrett after the sending her final payment letter. The evidence was submitted to the judge through cell phone bills and text messages.

4.) Shay Williams and Reggie Garrett did text Lauren Kilby stating that Reggie was going to tender payment when he returned from his trip.

5.) Gonannies.com did not give Lauren Kilby due process by disabling her account (they did not look into allegations), however since Kilby did electronically approve their online agreement with the fine print (no one reads) they did have right to disable accounts for any reasons.

6.) Shay Williams and Reggie Garret were in receipt of the court date.

7.) Lauren Kilby did win a judgment against Shay Williams and Reggie Garrett for non tender of payment, slander, lack of due process, amongst other things.

Please view the judgment below. https://docs.google.com/fileview?id=0B-3KhIPAOHDmM2MwM2UxYmMtNWRhYy00MDEyLTgzY2YtYTE0NTNkOTUxMzZk&hl=en

Lauren Kilby is an ambitious college graduate, with lots of experience, and insight. She also prides her image and reputation. All accusations against Lauren Kilby are false (i.e. she tried to blackmail for money, she harassed Shay Williams). She will always be transparent and truthful unlike Shay Williams and Reggie Garrett. So all the above statements are not fabricated lies, they are the truth! And with her honesty there is provided documentation to support the statements. Hopefully, all readers of this post can decipher through the fabricated stories and find truth.

Furthermore, Shay Williams and Reggie Garrett had 30 days after the judgment to file an appeal which would have been approximately December 3, 2009. Neither Williams nor Garrett filed an appeal.

Shay Williams continues to post negative and defaming comments (i.e. this posting) about Lauren Kilby after the judgment on November 2, 2009 because Lauren Kilby has began to collect on her judgment through Garnishment and FIFAs.

Lauren Kilby wishes for this to be over and wants her name and image to be restored. Kilby wants Shay Williams to refrain from posting these slanderous and defaming posts. She is very saddened by Shay Williams and Reggie Garrett continued retaliatory acts because she was served her justice!
