Combating elder fraud and protecting the rights of senior citizens
Our firm has the resources and knowledge to effectively handle elder fraud. We subpoena bank records, obtain medical records and work with Adult Protective Services. We also stay current on literature related to the elderly, including studies examining why certain people are more susceptible to fraud than others. We often work with elder experts in psychology and forensic accountants.
Our firm provides comprehensive help, addressing the various issues and the many ways elderly people can fall victim to fraud. We are experienced with issues related to the following:
- Credit card scams
- Life insurance scams
- Housing scams
- Identity theft
- Real estate transfers
- Bank accounts
An elderly person may trust a friend, relative, caregiver or even a complete stranger. Dishonest people take advantage of this trust and can cause serious harm to a person’s finances, credit rating and well-being. Contact our firm today if you or someone you love has been financially exploited.
