Webinar examines financial elder abuse

Financial elder abuse is a growing concern, with 4 million cases of elder abuse reported last year. The elderly are often bilked out of their savings, investments, and even homes by caretakers, family members, and con artists.

In a complimentary webinar from 10 a.m. to noon on Wednesday, June 10, attendees will learn about the signs of financial elder abuse and learn how to take action and prevent abuse for your customers and your community. Regulators will provide an update into elder financial abuse, and law enforcement will share insight into how to combat elder financial exploitation. Attendees will also learn how to prevent exploitation when competency is in question.

Davila, U.S. Postal inspector, United States Postal Service; Jenefer Duane, senior program analyst, Office for Older Americans, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau; Jonathan Helmstetter, special agent, Internal Revenue Service – Criminal Investigation; Kevin Rietema, special agent/coordinator, Federal Bureau of Investigation; Harris A.
