Anglicare Sydney is aware of reports that scammers are approaching elderly residents and clients across Anglicare sites and at their homes.
It is reported that people are approaching elderly Australians and offering personal care and general home and cleaning services, and while inside the home they are stealing from the client.
We encourage residents and clients to ask for identification from any agency staff, or anyone who approaches them to offer personal care or cleaning services.
All Anglicare staff and volunteers wear an Anglicare branded lanyard with their name and photograph and an Anglicare name badge with their full name.
We encourage residents and clients to ask to see identification from anyone claiming to be an Anglicare employee or volunteer. Anglicare employees and volunteers will not refuse this request nor be offended or become aggressive.
If you suspect or witness any illegal activity please call the police.
