Did you know that Americans lose an estimated $40 billion each year due to identity fraud and scams? Older Americans, specifically, fall victim to some type of financial fraud. With the explosive growth of the senior population, elder fraud is a serious problem.
These scams include Medicare fraud, tax fraud, fake virus scams, investment schemes and many others. Seniors are targeted because they are more likely to have nest eggs and they are less familiar with technology.
You can avoid these scams and protect your assets and identity. Ovation is sponsoring an educational session hosted by Catherine Swiniarski, an elder law attorney. She will address various ways to protect yourself and your loved ones. This important discussion will be held on March 25th at 1:30 pm.
