Financial Frauds and Scams Against Elders: Government Responses and Resources

 Naomi Karp and David KirkmanPresenters:
Naomi Karp (Office of Older Americans, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau)

Financial exploitation of older adults is the most common form of elder abuse and costs older adults billions of dollars each year. Victims are robbed of their resources, independence and dignity.
State and federal governments are often first responders and can play key roles in protecting older consumers. Government agencies have developed the expertise and tools to fight scammers, help victims, and make policy and practice recommendations to key stakeholders.
Additional sponsorship for this Webinar is provided by a grant from the Administration for Community Living. This webinar is part of a series of National Elder Rights Training Project webinars for the National Legal Resource Center.
