The National Council on Aging reports that “financial scams targeting seniors have become so prevalent that they’re now considered “the crime of the 21st century.” Why? Because seniors are thought to have a significant amount of money sitting in their accounts. Financial scams …(are) devastating to many older adults and can leave them in a very vulnerable position with little time to recoup their losses.”
You can help protect your elderly loved one by being aware of common scams and frauds, teaching them tips to avoid being swindled, and watching for signs that fraud may be taking place.
