Caregivers and Financial Fraud Prevention by Sonya Sellmeyer, Iowa Insurance Division consumer advocacy officer Con artists target consumers age 60 and older, swindling more than 7 million Americans out of almost $3 billion each year. Those older consumers may have caregivers — a spouse, family member, friend, paid professional or volunteer, official guardian, or conservator. All types of caregivers are critical to the well being of our seniors and can play a proactive role in protecting seniors from fraud by being educated and knowing the warning signs. But be aware that family, friends, and neighbors are the perpetrators of financial fraud 34% of the time, and strangers such as telemarketers or investment promoters may also be the perpetrator. Why should caregivers be informed about fraud against their loved ones or clients? . Seniors are the target of financial scams since they may have a lifetime worth of savings or a pension. Seniors may have cognitive decline or have anxiety about their finances. ‘Older individuals may be willing to listen to a telemarketer or take calls from unknown parties.
