Scammers target the vulnerable – they look for those who are isolated and less likely to resist being pressured. Look out for your loved ones – 75 is the average age of reported scams victims.

Scammers usually target the elderly through calls and mail. Help keep your loved ones safe!

Once scammers begin a relationship with the victim, this can go on for an extended period of time – this is financial abuse. See this video on how to spot the signs of financial abuse.
