Don't Let Grandma or Grandpa Become a Victim
Preventing Elder Fraud - ACFE DC

Elders are extremely vulnerable to the many cleverly designed domestic and cross-border mass-marketing fraud scams that are promoted via the internet, U.S. mails and telemarketing. These schemes result in the would-be thieves chasing more than $13 billion in assets held by America's senior citizens. Our seniors are more likely to live alone and lack the adequate supervision of care-givers. They are, as a class, most gullible and susceptible to mass-marketing fraud scams.


This program will highlight the following issues:

  •  Trends in on-going mass marketing frauds which target the elderly;
  •  Initiatives to derail these predatory schemes and their prosecution;
  •  Investigative techniques to uncover these schemes;
  •  A special look at Jamaican telemarketing frauds that target the elderly and its relationship to criminal enterprises involved in drug and human trafficking, child prostitution and terrorism.
