A toll-free National Elder Fraud Hotline: 1-833-FRAUD-1-1.  That’s like 9-1-1 for elder fraud.  The hotline is staffed seven days a week by experienced case managers who can help victims get the resources they need.  Studies show that older Americans are sometimes embarrassed to report fraud, but they should not be.  The sooner fraud is reported, the better the chances of catching the perpetrator and recovering the victim’s money.
