Podcast: Tips to Protect Against Fraud Exploitation

Fraud and Security, Podcasts
Financial exploitation can be categorized as forgery, misappropriation of financial resources or abusive financial control. While this can happen to any age group, our older loved ones are especially at risk of falling victim to this type of abuse.

In our latest episode, I sat down with Amanda Roberts, Investigations Analyst, to talk about the complex topic of financial exploitation. We covered how to identify financial exploitation, suspicious activity to lookout for, as well as how you can protect yourself and your loved ones from this type of scheme, including strategies such as:

  • Adding a joint signer to your accounts
  • Visiting your county’s Adult Protective Services to connect with an advocate
  • Visiting The Department Of Justice's website, a federal initiative assisting the elderly

Listen below to learn more about how you can protect yourself and your family from financial exploitation.
