Have you read the report by the US Senate's Special Commission on Aging? They identified the top 10 frauds that target our seniors across the country. Here is the list that they compiled:
- IRS Impersonation Scams
- Sweepstakes Scams
- Robocalls / Unwanted Phone Calls
- Computer Tech Support Schemes
- Identity Theft
- Grandparent Scams
- Elder Financial Abuse
- Grant Scams
- Romance Scams / Confidence Fraud
- Home Improvement Scams
Have you or someone you know been a victim of one of these scams? When most people think of elder abuse, they think solely about physical abuse or neglect. However, financial abuse is just as common as those other types, if not more so! The financial effects from being a victim of a scam can be long-lasting, devastating, and emotionally debilitating. If you feel that a loved one has been a victim of elder abuse, please contact Attorney Doug Stoehr to set up a free consultation. Attorney Stoehr has experience and knowledge pertaining to elder abuse legal claims, and will work hard to fight for the rights of your family or friend. Call his office at 814-946-4100 to set up your consultation.
