Recognizing Elder Fraud for Staff
Elder Fraud is forecasted to become the fastest growing crime in the next ten years.

Train all your staff on the warning signs and the steps to take when they believe a customer is a victim.

The reason is simple: the baby boomers are aging so criminals consider them the new hunting ground. The abuser is most likely to be a family member or a caregiver who has worked with senior citizens in a previous job. If they are successful in depleting the accounts of the victim your bank may become involved in litigation.

This webinar will train front line staff on the warning signs of an abused elderly customer. It provides practical hands-on training methods that have worked for other financial institutions. It will focus on the types of transactions that allow the caregiver to gain financial control of the senior citizen. The methods obtained in this illuminating session will help you protect your account holders by providing simple techniques to handle these difficult situations.

This program will train staff how to identify, evaluate and report the problem to management. We will provide examples and best practices to follow when you suspect financial exploitation of the elderly.


  • Understand how easily senior citizens can be compromised
  • Know what a social engineering attack is and how it is used on senior citizens
