Notice: Recruitment and employment scam using fraudulent AgeCare job postings in the Philippines

Recently AgeCare has received reports of a fraudulent nursing and health care aide recruitment program targeting nurses and caregivers in the Philippines. The scam attempts to recruit and collect registration fees with promises of employment.

Applicants send their resumes through Facebook Ads or JobOpenings.ph and receive a follow up email and/or text message stating that they have been selected for a position at AgeCare (referred to Age Care), and are instructed to make a payment via Western Union in order to attend a mandatory “Employment-Deployment Seminar” session.

Please know that AgeCare and AgeCare Communities in Canada is not actively recruiting foreign workers at this time and will never ask job applicants to send money as part of the job application process.

If you have received an email, text, or other communication similar to that described above, contact your local police station or anti-fraud agency. Do not respond to any emails that you suspect may be part of a scam.

For more information please read the POEA alert warning nurses on email scam from July 1, 2014 (PDF).

The Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre has been notified.
