The way con games are played may change over time, but the practice of defrauding consumers is nothing new. When the target is an older adult, however, the stakes have never been higher. Senior scams can cost older adults everything from their life savings, to their homes, to even their lives. The growing incidence of senior fraud is putting many older adults in harm’s way, threatening to strip them of their assets, independence and trust. This web seminar will examine the ins and outs of senior scams, as well as explaining the most common scams. It will also offer real-world advice on preventing and reporting scams against older adults.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Identify the types of scams, fraud and abuse;
  • Recognize signs that an older adult may have been victimized by a scam; and,
  • Learn prevention strategies and how to avoid scams targeting older adults.

Presenter:

Lakelyn Hogan, MBA, is a strategic partnerships representative for Home Instead Senior Care, with a graduate certificate in Gerontology. And she is serving in her second year as the co-chair of the Nebraska State Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association’s Dementia Care Conference.
