Financial scams targeting seniors have become so prevalent that they’re now considered “the crime of the 21st century.”

Why? Because seniors are thought to have a significant amount of money sitting in their accounts. Financial scams also often go unreported or can be difficult to prosecute, so they’re considered a “low-risk” crime.

However, they're devastating to many older adults and can leave them in a very vulnerable position with little time to recoup their losses.


  • Common scams and fraud targeting older adults of all incomes
  • Familiarity with resources to help protect consumers from scams and fraud
