Nanny job comes with a creepy catch

If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

A Scottish couple is offering a yearly salary of $84,000 to their new live-in nanny but there's a seriously creepy catch.

The job sounds like it could be the next sequel of The Conjuring.

The pair posted an ad looking for an au pair who could look after children and clean their home, which is actually completely haunted. So much so, they've gone through five au pairs in the last year alone.

In an ad posted on Childcare.co.uk, the couple said along with the $84,000 they'll chuck in a room with an ensuite and private kitchen plus 28 paid days off a year.

"We have lived in our home for nearly 10 years. We were told it was 'haunted' when we bought it, but kept our minds open and decided to buy the house regardless," the ad said.

"Five nannies have left the role in the last year, each citing supernatural incidents as the reason, including strange noises, broken glass and furniture moving.

"This has obviously been a period of great upheaval for our children. We haven't personally experienced any supernatural happenings, as they have been reported only while we've been out of the house, but we're happy to pay above the asking rate, and feel it's important to be as upfront as possible to find the right person."

Along with dealing with the paranormal, the au pair will also be required to prepare breakfast and get the children, 5 and 7, ready for school before dropping them off.
