The annual financial loss by victims of elder financial abuse is estimated to be at least $2.9 billion dollars. If you are worried an older adult you work with will become a victim of a senior scam, this webinar will offer plenty of advice on how to protect them. The “how’s” and “why’s” of senior scams will be examined, as well as the top scams to watch out for. Real-world advice on preventing and reporting scams against older adults will also be offered. 

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • List five ways to prevent and report suspected scams against an older adult.
  • Identify eight signs that an older adult may have been victimized by a scam.
  • Define the eight most-common scams targeting older adults.
