The annual financial loss by victims of elder financial abuse is estimated to be at least $2.9 billion dollars. If you are worried that your clients or another older adult you know are susceptible to scams, this web seminar will offer plenty of advice on how to protect them. It will also examine the ins and outs of senior scams, as well as explaining the top scams. And it will offer real-world advice on preventing and reporting scams against older adults.           

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; and,
  • Define the eight most common scams targeting older adults.
