What are some of the common characteristics shared by the elderly who are most susceptible to financial abuse?
Characteristics that make elderly more succeptible to financial abuse: elder persons may be more likely to have conditions or disabilities that make them easy targets for financial abuse, [ including forgetfulness or other cognitive impairments (Central California Legal Services, 2001; Choi and Mayer, 2000). Elder persons may also have a diminished capacity to rationally evaluate proposed
courses of action (Dessin, 2000). Elder persons may be more likely to have disabilities that make them dependent on others for help. In addition, seniors may be isolated due to their lack of mobility or because they live alone, which shields perpetrators from scrutiny and insulates victims from those who can help. ]

can you List and discuss two techniques used to defraud the elderly?
Weegy: Advance Fee Scheme: An advance fee scheme occurs when the victim pays money to someone in anticipation of receiving something of great value, such as a loan, contract, investment, or gift, and then receives little or nothing in return. [ This may involve the sale of products or services, the offering of investments, lottery winnings, “found money, or many other “opportunities. Clients usually are asked to pay a “finder’s fee” in advance. Victims often then learn that they are ineligible for financing and receive nothing.

Affinity Group Fraud: Members of closely-knit religious, cultural, military, and professional groups are targeted by con artists who share (or claim to share) the same characteristics or interests. Con artists often snare respected community leaders to spread the word about the scheme by convincing them of the legitimacy of the fraudulent investment. Affinity fraud exploits the trust and friendship among people. ATM Theft: Seniors should be very careful when using an ATM at a bank to withdraw cash. Con artists will observe account numbers and passwords in order to duplicate transactions or steal cash from seniors as they exit ATMs. ATM Theft: Seniors should be very careful when using an ATM at a bank to withdraw cash.
