Mom Warns Other Parents After Fake CPS Worker Attempted to Kidnap Her Son

A mom from New York took to Facebook last week after a disturbing encounter took place at her home with a FAKE CPS worker.

Ashley Bradley had just put her son, Ja’vonni, down for a nap when a woman she did not know came knocking at her door.

The stranger told Ashley that she was with Delaware County Child Protective Services and was there to remove the 9-month-old boy from her care.

“At first, I was so mad and hurt, I wasn’t thinking right,” Ashley wrote on Facebook. “But [then] I realized that she 1. Didn’t have a state issued badge, 2. My son’s name was spelled wrong on the folder she had in her hand and 3. I have no cps cases so they would not have been coming to my house.”

The whole thing sounds totally bizarre, but also, TERRIFYING.

Ashley says upon realizing that something wasn’t right with this situation, her mama bear instincts kicked in. The stranger became frustrated and gave Ashley an attitude when she began pressing the woman for proof of who she was and what she was actually there to do.

Then Ashley told the woman she needed to step away for a minute to grab her cell phone—which she planned on using to contact police.

“She was standing on my porch, as I would not let her into my home. When I walked back out into my living room from getting my phone, she was walking very fast around the corner of my house.”
