Protecting Your Clients from Financial Elder Fraud
Financial crimes against the elderly are highly under-reported throughout the United States.
Too often, incidents of stealing from an elderly victim are misdiagnosed as a “family matter,” or a civil court issue.
Exploiting our elderly out of their lifelong savings and property is far more than stealing material items, it goes deeper. It is the THEFT OF THEIR DIGNITY.
Retirement professionals need to understand the symptoms of financial elder abuse and what can be done to protect the elderly from crimes of fraud. David Kessler’s presentation will allow the audience to hear from victims and how these crimes have impacted their lives, as well as from the predators about how they located and exploited America’s senior citizens.
In "Protecting Your Clients from Financial Elder Fraud" by David Kessler, you will learn how:
- RED FLAG warning signs are almost always present but overlooked by the family, friends, and business associates of the elderly victim;
- To handle the problem once it is exposed and where to go for assistance;
- Undue influence and deception are always present when committing financial elder abuse;
- Being proactive on this problem is the greatest form of protecting our elderly loved ones or serving our elderly clients.
