Unfortunately, the most vulnerable segment of American society to scams, frauds and cons are those people ages 65 and older. Since the last census taken in 2010, the trends reported say that age group is also one of the fastest growing segments of population in the United States. In fact, it is projected that the number of people in that age group will double in the next century and the oldest old are the fastest growing portion of that group.
With that in mind, the likelihood of someone you know and love becoming a target is probably going to increase as well. These thieves don’t break in during the night, they approach the elderly during the day and look and sound like the guy next door.
In light of the staggering statistic provided by the Federal Trade Commission, that nearly 25 million Americans are victimized each year by fraud, we all know we need to get serious about how to protect ourselves. Here at Keeping in Touch Solutions, we’re doing something to help families do just that with the Senior Fraud Alert program.
Put a system in place that prevents the elderly from being victimized – and that’s what Senior Fraud Alert is able to do. By giving your mom or dad or aunt or grandparent the tools provided in the Senior Fraud Alert program to obstruct a con artist, you are empowering them to live safer and more independently. And, you are providing yourself with a little peace of mind as well.
We can’t insulate those we love from everything that is dangerous, unsafe or unscrupulous, but with Senior Fraud Alert, you are adding another layer of security.
A daily check-in call could be the lifeline, the joy you give someone that makes the biggest difference in their perception of what old age is like.
