Financial Elder Abuse
Protecting Elderly Victims of Greed
Financial elder abuse is the illegal or unethical exploitation and/or use of an elder’s funds, property, or other assets. It includes misuse of an elder’s personal checks, credit cards, or accounts; stealing cash, income checks, or household goods; forging their signature; engaging in identity theft.
Common scams that target the elderly include random prize announcements which require credit card information, phony charities, and investment schemes. Unfortunately, elder abuse is most often carried out by those close to the victim, such as children, primary caretakers, and other family members.
Signs of Financial Elder Abuse:
- Significant withdrawals from accounts
- Sudden changes in financial condition
- Items or cash missing from the household
- Suspicious changes in wills, power of attorney, titles, and policies
- Addition of names to the elder’s signature card
- Unnecessary services, goods, or subscriptions
