PREVENTION OF FRAUDS, SCAMS AND ELDER ABUSE
We recommend and urge you not to send money or pay any fee for someone you do not know personally and trust. You must be especially careful with offers that seem too good to be true.
Frauds often start with someone offering to buy something you advertised, pay you to do work at home, give you an “advance” on a lottery you supposedly won, pay an installment on the millions that you will receive for agreeing to have money from a foreign country transferred to your bank account for safekeeping, or some type of ransom for a loved one. Whatever the pitch, the person may sound quite believable. Please, use discernment when attending to these sorts of solicitations.
Once you send money through a transfer, the funds cannot be retrieved. Be wary of any time someone you do not know well is asking you to send money.
Elder fraud involves targeting older adults with false promises of goods, services, or financial benefits that do not exist, were never intended to be provided, or were misrepresented. Scammers will often target elderly people, asking them to send money and then keeping the funds.
