Elder Financial Abuse

Elder Financial Abuse

Was Your Loved One The Target Of A Scam?

Financial exploitation of senior citizens is among the most commonly reported types of elder abuse according to the United States Department of Justice, and information released by the National Center on Elder Abuse indicates that an estimated $2.9 billion is stolen from elderly citizens through scams every single year. The Elder Justice Act was passed back in 2010, provides legal protection to victims of fraud, but it doesn’t stop scammers, whether they’re a caregiver, a family member, or anyone else from hunting for and finding new victims.
