TAF AmeriCorps - Alleghany Foundation

The Advancement Foundation (TAF) is a regional intermediary organization for 4 agencies, hosting 15 AmeriCorps Members. The strategy, which will holistically address the needs of multiple demographics, includes bringing together nonprofit, educational institutions, and local government agencies to address community needs. The goal is to become more of a catalyst for change in turning around negative trends-such as job losses, declining population, and declining school enrollment- that are becoming visible in our rural community. Part of VISION 2025 is an existing solution; We are looking to build increased community engagement and network of volunteers.

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.
