Senior Scams

I like to think I’m way too smart to be conned…but then I frantically go check every time I get an email that someone used my iTunes id to buy some fitness software that costs hundreds of dollars. The truth is, scams and financial abuse for over 50s are on the rise. Maybe it’s because there are so many more of us around to scam. Attorney Michael Hackard has a book called Wolf at the Door: Undue Influence and Elder Financial Abuse. He talks with us about how to figure out when someone is financially abusing a loved one, and how to avoid getting scammed ourselves.
