As a Services@Home Caregiver with the Good Samaritan Society, your role is to help support clients in every way, including personal care, meal and medication needs, safety issues and more.

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
