The difficult part for you is that even after you warn them, it still happens to your aging parents because you can't be with them 24-hours a day, 7 days a week.
My mom was so excited that she had contributed to a special cause in town and when I found out that it didn't exist, I was furious. It made me see how easy it would be for her to be victimized. That's why I got her subscribed to Senior Fraud Alert. Now I'm not worrying - and neither is she! Thanks!

We take it from there. If the solicitor is from a legitimate organization, they will call the referral number, which is actually our call center. We sort and filter legitimate requests from the scammers and frauds. The senior's family is then notified within 24 hours of legitimate requests by phone or email. The family and the senior can then decide to take whatever actions they wish regarding legitimate calls.
Senior Fraud Alert prevents your loved one from being victimized and allows you to help them make the decisions that are in their best interest. With Senior Fraud Alert watching over your family, you prevent serious consequences including financial and identity theft and at the same time empower your family elders to maintain their independence.
My husband, Jerry, would give away the store to all those people calling us. But once I got him going with the Senior Fraud Alert program, I don't have to worry about it. In fact, he started saying, "Another one bites the dust!" every time he hangs up after one of those calls. It's kinda funny, but I'm really glad about it.
