Elder fraud will be the fastest growing crime in the next ten years. The reason is simple: baby boomers are aging and criminals consider them the new hunting ground. The abuser is most likely a family member or caregiver who has worked with senior citizens in a previous job. If an abuser is successful in depleting a victim’s account, your financial institution may become involved in litigation.
This webinar will cover the warning signs and provide practical hands-on training methods that have worked for other financial institutions. The focus will be on the types of transactions that allow abusers to gain financial control over senior citizens. This illuminating session will include examples and best practices. Learn how to protect accountholders using simple techniques to handle these difficult situations. This program can be used to train your staff how to identify, evaluate, and report the problem to management.
