Elder financial abuse is a crime. It involves the wrongful taking of money or property, whether through fraud, scams, predatory caretakers or family, or others. An estimated $2.9 billion is stolen annually from elders. You can learn to protect yourself and those you love.
Fleeced is a new documentary produced by the National Community Reinvestment Coalition (NCRC), which tells the story of older adults and their families who were victimized by different types of financial scams and abusive financial products.
