Financial Fraud and Identity Theft Resources

 

 

Unfortunately, financial abuse of seniors and scamming in the general population has become all to commonplace.  One study estimated that in the early 2000's, adults over the age of 50 lost $40 billion to telemarketing scams.  The following resources are available to anyone that believes he or she may have been a victim of financial fraud or knows anyone that has.
