Don't Be a Victim Florida West Coast Free Workshop

By Betty Morrow

Free Public Workshop Offered ‘Financial Exploitation: Don’t Be a Victim!’ March 7th 2007
Tampa Area.

What is Financial Exploitation?

Referred to as fiduciary abuse, financial abuse, economic abuse, exploitation and financial mistreatment, financial exploitation of elders encompasses a broad range of conduct. Basically it is using the elder’s money or assets contrary to the elder’s wishes, needs or best interests – or for the abuser’s personal gain.

“We are seeing an increasing number of fraud victims coming to us seeking help in recovering from financial exploitation. As it only takes one unscrupulous individual to drain a lifetime of savings.."

The workshop is designed to educate the public on the latest scams and exploitation, victim profiles, prevention tips and steps, and to provide useful resources and references.
