Caregiver scam Craigslist
I applied for a caregiver job posting and on the email I was stupid enough to list my phone number after I got the email posted below I realized it was a scam but the person named”Laura George”sent me inoumerous text messages basically begging for my info stating she needed to place her mother 10 miles from my house and for receiving payment! This is absurd I just need a job and all these ppl just waste my time… Below is the email response
Thanks for your email. I need a caregiver for my Mother, who will be coming from HAWAII (Honolulu) soon. she is 60 Years of age, 140lbs and 5.8ft. She can speak English fluently. We would have moved her to elderly care center here in the State but she doesn’t like being there. I really need you to be honest and trust worthy in this work.The work basis are below:
- You are to be checking on My Mother at least 4 times in a week for proper caring and to know how well about her health and i think you have little medical experience.
- You will be earning $400 a week for handling this work properly.
- You will be driving her to the hospital when the need arises for proper medical check up at least once in a month and if you don’t know how to drive a car, you can hire it.
- Your working days will be Mon, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. You will have to prescribe the convenient hrs during each of this days which will not affect your other regular work as this will be a part time work for you and if you want to live with her in the house for other assistance, you are absolute free to do so.
To proceed, kindly provide me your full name and mailing address so that we can ensure the housing broker get her an apartment which will be more closer to your house. I hope about 10 miles will not be too far for you. Also we will be paying you the first week wages upfront via a Certified Check because you will help her to get some medical tools in any nearest pharmacy store around you. If all this works for you, you can get back to me with the following details so that we can ensure you are ready for the work.
1. Full Name
2. Mailing Address,
4. State and Zip Code
5. Phone Number
6.Age, Sex and marital status.
I will be sending you her address very soon so that you will know where you will be working. I will give you her home address once the housing broker find her a suitable house. I will be awaiting your email and we can proceed as you understand that the date of her arrival is close.
