Part 1 – The Top 10 Elderly Fraud Scams and How to Avoid Them
Every one of us here on the show is susceptible of being taken advantage of by con artists. But as we age the problem is magnified. Over the next two podcasts I’ll be talking about the top 10 elder scams that exist.
Let’s take a minute to talk about why scamming the elderly has become so popular. The biggest reason is because those doing the scanning have found the older segment of our population is an easy target. What these con artists have found is that they can easily manipulate this segment of the population because many of the elderly are lonely, and they’re not as mentally sharp as they used to be. Both of these two weaknesses can be easily exploited by someone who does not have your best interest in mind.
