Elder abuse can happen to anyone.
It affects people of every ethnic background, gender, and financial status.
"I hope that no victim of fraud feels ashamed. This can happen to anyone. We need to spread the word about this. So, please, if you or someone you know was victimized by an elder fraud scheme, please report it to the FTC. It might just give us the tip we need to put criminals in jail—and to protect other seniors." Attorney General Jeff Sessions
If you are a victim or know a victim of elder fraud, you can call 1-877-FTC-HELP or go to ftc.gov/complaint
