WEBINAR: Safeguarding Seniors from Scams
Older adults lose billions each year from financial exploitation and it’s getting worse. With 10,000 Baby Boomers turning 65 years old every day, scammers are working overtime to manipulate seniors. The impact often extends beyond finances. Financially exploited seniors often suffer emotional consequences and even physical ramifications. Yet, elder financial abuse can be prevented. Knowledge is key to prevention and partnerships are vital to protecting seniors. Tune in to hear from Sam Kunjukunju at the American Bankers Association Foundation to talk about prevailing frauds and ways you can help protect elders in your community.
