Training opportunity: Thursday, March 15, 2022, at 12pm ET. The National Center for Victims of Crime presents “Financial Fraud, Abuse, and Neglect: Serving Older Victims of Crime.” Approximately 1 in 10 older adults will experience elder abuse.
With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the rates of elder abuse, particularly financial exploitation, have dramatically increased. With social isolation and a shift to more virtual activities, older adults are experiencing an increase in fraud and fraudulent targeting, including romance, government imposter, and online shopping scams – and more.
This 90-minute panel will focus on elder abuse, financial fraud, and how exploitation affects older, vulnerable adults. The expert panel discussion will help financial professionals, caregivers and advocates identify red flags of elder fraud, reporting and prevention initiatives, and trauma-informed strategies for working with older victims, including the elder shelter movement.
