Senior Scams: Protecting Older Adults from Fraud and Elder Financial Abuse
Older adults can be attractive targets for financial predators both known and unknown to them. Losing money or possessions to scams, fraud, and exploitation can be especially devastating to older adults, who may not be able to earn back what they’ve lost. The best defense against scams and such exploitation is knowledge of the threat and what steps can be taken to avoid it. This forum is designed to help older adults, family caregivers, and others prevent, recognize, and properly report financial exploitation to authorities. Sylvia Pla-Raith has more than 30 years of experience working in the interest of older victims. She is the lead staff member of the Ohio Attorney General’s Elder Abuse Commission and the director of the Elder Justice Initiative. Prior to joining the Attorney General’s Office, she served as the chief supervisor for Adult Protective Services in Cuyahoga County.
