Financial Elder Abuse At Banks
Fraud At The Teller’s Window
Fraud on seniors is increasingly in the news and scams typically result in a senior withdrawing money from his or her bank account. Unlike most younger people, seniors still go to bank tellers to get cash. Alert bank tellers may be able to sense when something isn’t right. Some banks are training their tellers to spot abuse and the California elder abuse attorneys at Evans Law Firm, Inc. believe alert bank tellers could be an effective weapon against financial elder abuse.
