Financial Elder Abuse

According to the 2010 Investor Protection Trust Elder Fraud Survey, one in five Americans over the age of 65 has been victimized by financial fraud. It has cost elder adults billions of dollars each year and can affect anyone. The results have devastating consequences for the victims, both financially and emotionally.

If you or a loved one is a victim, our elder financial abuse lawyers at Sanford Heisler Sharp will aggressively pursue legal action to make sure your funds are returned to you by those who exploited you or your family member.

Elder Financial Exploitation Can Happen to Anyone

According to the National Adult Protective Services Association, the number of those affected by financial abuse has grown significantly in the past decade. Recent research shows that one in nine seniors have reported being abused, neglected or exploited in the past year with one in 20 older adults indicating some form of perceived financial mistreatment.

Financial exploitation can take several different forms and although the majority of reports involve family members, the perpetrator can be a complete stranger. Some of the common scams include:

Other forms of financial exploitation include predatory lending practices, high-pressure annuity sales, investment schemes, and identity theft.
