An employer named Mark Smith in uk is offering me a job as nanny. is this for real?
He sent me his address and contact number. I sent him my cv and application letter but when he told me to mail YOUR WAY TO UK TRAVEL AGENCY for them to help me process a working visa.. I automatically searched it on the net. Is it a scam?

There is NO nanny visa for the UK anymore. That was cancelled back in November 2008 so unless you have already been working in the UK since before that date, it's impossible for anyone to hire you because there is no visa. Now you have to either be an EU/EEA citizen or from a country eligible for the Youth Mobility Scheme (Japan, Australia, Canada or New Zealand).
Travel agencies book travel - hotels, flights, train tickets, tours, etc. They have NOTHING to do with work visas
The ONLY agency that can process your visa is the British Embassy in YOUR country or their authorised visa agency. If you are from the Philippines, VFS is the ONLY agency authorised by the British government to process visas for Pinoys.
If you were told to contact anyone but VFS then it's always a scam

Please say you didn't send him any money yet for that visa or other paperwork. Yes it's a scam and a very common one.
Think about it. Who would hire a nanny without even a personal interview? And there are no nannies available in the UK?

Yes, of COURSE it's a scam. No parent in the universe would hire a nanny without an in-person interview.

You are falling for a scam
You really don't see it?
Google: Human Trafficking
Slavery, prostitution. You will be in a new country with no way to get back. No contact
If not, it's just the old scam in which they send you fake checks, and ask you to wire money. Or ask for your checking account details
