CN Advisory: High Concern

Good Samaritans of America

, NJ 



On December 1, 2016, The United States Attorney's Office, District of New Jersey reported on the operations of Good Samaritans of America, an alleged charity, in a press statement titled, "Ocean County, New Jersey, Woman Admits Role in $1 Million Medicare Fraud That Deceived Seniors Into Unnessesary [sic] DNA Tests." It has come to our attention that this organization is not registered with the IRS, but is soliciting from the general public in violation of federal tax law. For this reason, we have issued a High Concern CN Advisory. For more information, please see The United States Attorney's Office, District of New Jersey press statement.

  • On March 16, 2018, published an article titled, "Somerset man indicted on Medicare fraud." For more information, please see the article.

  • On May 10, 2019, published an article titled, "Somerset man sentenced to 50 months in prison for nonprofit Medicare fraud." For more information, please see the article.

The concerns raised about organizational legitimacy and/or federal tax law compliance are serious both in nature and scope and have thus warranted this CN Advisory. We have published this advisory to provide donors with content that they may find useful when making their giving decisions. The views and opinions expressed here are those of the authors of sources used for the reported information, and not those of Charity Navigator. Charity Navigator is not responsible for the nature or content of the information presented through such external sources and websites.
