Unfortunately, senior citizens are one of the most targeted groups for scams, identity theft and fraud. One study estimated that scammers steal $2.9 billion per year from seniors. That’s enough to buy a sports team, a summer home in Italy, and a private island or two!
Fraudsters target seniors because they’re more likely to have nest eggs and are less familiar with technology. Scammers may contact potential victims by telephone, in person or on the internet through email, Facebook and other messaging sites.
