WHO’S WATCHING GRANDMA & GRANDPA?
Senior citizens make up 12 per cent of the U.S. population, but are 35 per cent of all fraud victims.
Seniors are often lonely as the fast pace of life today keeps kids & grandkids away tending to their own lives. They come from a more trusting generation making them easy targets for abusers. Diminished mental & physical capacity make them even more vulnerable. Senior victims are more likely not to tell anyone they have been scammed because they are embarrassed or fear having a family member take over their finances. The FBI has a very informative web page outlining types of senior frauds and how to prevent them at: www.fbi.gov/scams-safety/fraud/seniors
Years ago I had an elderly friend who was robbed by a service man who was working in his home. My friend was a coin collector & dealer and the perpetrator took a “large penny set” that had been collected over a 50 year period. By the time he discovered it was missing, filed a police report and the set was tracked to a pawn shop in Canton, Ohio half of the coins had already been sold. This set was irreplaceable to my friend. He was heartbroken over loosing it and embarrassed at how it happened. The service man was an employee of a reputable local company who dropped the ball by not doing a background check on this fellow who was a convicted felon.
