Training Opportunity: February 24, 2022. The Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) presents “Taking Action Assisting Victims of Financial Fraud.” Anyone can be a victim of financial fraud, and perpetrators of this type of crime can range from the most intimate of people like partners and family members to strangers far away.
It’s important for service providers, practitioners, and those who do client-facing work, to understand the dynamics of financial fraud and the emotional and often traumatic toll it can have on victims. This presentation will identify strategies and provide resources to help professionals who are seasoned in supporting victims and those who will occupationally support someone experiencing fraud. Presenters will help identify steps for an action plan and provide intervention and prevention strategies to disrupt the cycle of fraud.
