Financial Exploitation Prevention Project
Senior financial abuse, which has been called the “Crime of the 21st Century,” is increasing as our senior population increases. The accumulated wealth of older adults makes them targets for financial abuse, and seniors at all income levels are being targeted. Seniors are in danger of abuse from family members, business and service professionals, acquaintances, and complete strangers.
Financial abuse often occurs at the same time as other forms of abuse, such as neglect and emotional/psychological abuse. The effects of financial exploitation are staggering: no savings, stress, shame, mental and physical illness and even death.
How We Help

“All attendees of this presentation would agree this information is most valuable and can help seniors become empowered rather than remain a victim despite the rise in [financial exploitation] crimes.”
