As the baby boomers age "elder fraud" will become the fastest growing swindle in our country! The criminals will target highly educated people for the greater riches they provide. Often, they have worked in occupations that have placed them in close contact with senior citizens. They know exactly how to manipulate the elderly and don't care anything about the victims. Many of those who become victims will not admit to it or be unwilling to prosecute the criminals. The reason is simple: they don't want anyone to know they were deceived. This in-depth webinar will provide you the tools to identify elder fraud when it is happening.

Our instructors, BankersOnline Guru Barry Thompson and Arvin Clar, have both handled elder fraud cases. They will instruct you on how to pinpoint suspicious transactions when reviewing senior citizens' accounts. They will review the profiles of people who will most likely take advantage of a senior citizen. More importantly, you will learn how to approach a caregiver who might be abusing an elderly person. You will learn how to determine which steps your financial institution should take to help protect the victim. This webinar concludes with resources you can turn to for help in handling elder fraud abuse cases.
