Protecting the Elderly from Fraud and Abuse














It is important for our elder community to be aware of the dangers of becoming a victim of fraud and abuse. This publication is informative and provides awareness to the issue.

Remember to defend yourself against scams:

1. Don't stay on the phone with a stranger asking for money
2. Never judge a person's integrity by how they sound
3. Monitor your investments; ask tough questions
4. Be suspicious if you have trouble retrieving your principal or profits.
5. Watch out for salesmen who prey on your fears.
