A New Jersey woman was arrested June 4 for allegedly presenting forged government documents when applying at a healthcare staffing firm for a job as a certified nurse aide, the New Jersey Attorney General’s office reported.
Bassey Justice Woodson, 49, of Newark, is accused of falsifying government documents, theft by deception and uttering a forged instrument, all in the third degree, when applying for a job as a certified nurse aide at Right at Home, a home health aide staffing agency. She was hired and received $4,410 in salary to which she was not entitled, according to the Attorney General’s office.
The state’s investigation revealed that Woodson’s nurse aide certification displayed an expired registration number originally assigned to someone else. Also, her employment authorization card, issued by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, displayed a fraudulent expiration date.
