Need a volunteer to work Duval seniorsﾒ complaints against contractors, individuals, service persons, and vendors who cheated the elderly.
Work will be performed in an office location either at the Jacksonville Sheriffﾒs Office Zone 6 on Dunn Ave or at the Better Business Bureau office on Beach Blvd.
Work involves talking with a complainant in person or on the phone, calling complained against persons and getting their side of the story, finding facts, making a determination of the right thing to do to resolve the problem, and making a recommendation to a case worker supervisor.
Work usually involves making a senior whole with an apology or the return of money or the work being performed correctly, chastisement of people who tried to cheat the elderly and volunteer satisfaction from righting civil wrongs.
No work will be performed in the field, at homes, or at complained about businesses. All work will be performed in the safety of a police building or at the Better Business Bureau office.
Applicants will be trained in all the policy and procedures required to perform at a superior level.
Computer literate applicants may be asked to perform higher-level fact-finding using a computer to search databases available through our internal web site.
Seniors Vs. Crime is a non-profit organization working with the Florida Attorney General to perform the missions of (1) righting civil wrongs for persons either who are citizens of Florida or who do business with Florida residents or companies and (2) educating Florida residents about avoiding financial fraud.
Seniors Vs. Crime is a statewide organization with more than 40 offices usually embedded in law enforcement agencies and staffed with senior volunteers. Each year Seniors Vs. Crime returns more than $2,000,000 to folks who felt they were cheated. $50,000 were returned to Duval seniors this fiscal year from July to June 2019. None of the volunteers are paid for their work. None of the seniors cheated have to pay a penny for the service. Everything is free. Isnﾒt that nice?
