How to Prevent The Crime of The Twenty-First Century
One in five older adults (65+) are victims of Financial Exploitation costing these vulnerable individuals annually: $28 million in Virginia and $3 Billion nationally. Also surprising that only 1 in 44 case of financial elder abuse is ever reported. Recent research has found that elder financial exploitation is fast growing, widespread, expensive and even deadly.
Williamsburg Area Faith in Action will host a free “community dialog” to provide awareness, education and resources to help prevent Financial Exploitation of older adults.
A panel of local experts in the field of: Law Enforcement, Legal, Finance and Medical will provide education and resources to reduce the risk of Financial Exploitation.
Attendees will receive education and awareness about FE; learn ways to reduce their risk of FE; and establish relationships and protocols of where to turn if they become a victim of FE. This program is free but requires a reservation due to limited seating.
