I am encountering more and more situations in which elders are the victims of financial fraud and abuse. Sometimes the attack comes from the outside (like hackers) and just as often the attack comes from family members and trusted friends. It’s a disgusting act, filled with cowardice on the part of the perpetrators.
I came across this article from the NY Times. It includes some good tips. I am concerned that the advice is lost on the clueless. Those who most need the help won’t be looking to the New York Times for self-help. They are already trusting the next person out to steal their money.
