Financial exploitation has been called the “crime of the 21st century” with one study suggesting that older Americans lost at least $2.9 billion to financial exploitation in 2010 by a broad spectrum of perpetrators, including persons they know and trust, as well as strangers. Cognitive impairment diminishes the ability of some older adults to make financial decisions and to detect fraud and scams.

Topics to be covered include:
• Investment fraud
• Telephone Scams
• Charity Scams
• Computer/Internet Scams

• Medical Identity Theft
• Scams that Target Homeowners
• Scams that Target Veterans
