Elderly and financial fraud

I recently heard about a daughter’s tale relating to her dad experiencing memory problems, one involving misplacing his wallet with a lot of money inside.  She went on to say he also would get lost in places he was familiar with.

When family members heard him talking on the phone about investments he was making, they thought it was time to intervene in his financial matters.  They discovered he was swindled out of almost $100,000 by companies that did not exist.

Situations like this one have become more and more common.  Financial exploitation of the elderly has increased over the years and continues to climb – many times by a caregiver.

If you discover that a loved one is the victim of financial fraud, contact an Orange County Family Law attorney who is familiar with elder abuse issues and will protect your loved ones rights.  No one deserves to be taken advantage of.
