Get help finding the Right Elder Abuse Law Lawyer for your case
Elders may unfortunately find themselves as victims of various types of financial abuse because some people believe they are easy targets. For example, financial advisors or agents may attempt to commit investment fraud against elderly and aging individuals. Elder investment fraud victims may be pressured into making unsuitable investments, pitched schemes and fraudulent offerings, harassed by unlicensed advisors, etc. One out of every five senior citizens is said to become a victim of some sort of financial abuse or exploitation. This includes the possibility of becoming an elder investment fraud victim.
Senior citizens are targeted as elder investment fraud victims because they are seen as being vulnerable. Many elders may suffer from mild cognitive impairments, confusion, Alzheimer's, dementia, and/or may be left in the care of facility workers instead of their families. All of these factors lead to creating a potential elder investment fraud victim.
Elder investment fraud victims may suffer extreme financial problems as a result of the fraud, losing their hard-earned money and assets. This can severely harm the well being and quality of life of the elder investment fraud victim, as well as the elder's family who may end up bearing the burden of their elder's financial troubles, or who may end up left with no inheritance after their elderly family member passes away.
