Frauds and Scams

Older adults are targets for frauds. These articles discuss the issue and provide ways to avoid being scammed.

Aging Frauds Close to Home star
FDIC reports that frauds and thefts against older persons by people they know and trust are surprisingly common. Learn how to protect ourselves and how to remedy these crimes against us as we age.

Avoiding Scams star
If we are age 60 or older and especially if we are older women living alone we may be a special target of fraudulent telemarketers and others who consider us vulnerable. Learn how to be especially aware and not be a victim of these dishonest practices.

Fraud Vulnerability as We Age star
Studies show that we are more vulnerable to fraud as we age, as we are losing some of our "cues" such as "gut feelings" and the sense that something may be wrong. Learn about what is being done to discover what changes as we age and how to become more aware and safer out there.
