Legal Basics: Protecting Older Adults Against Fraudulent Schemes
and Scams

When: Tuesday, April 10th, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. PT / 2:00 p.m. ET.

With savings and assets accumulated over a lifetime, older adults are attractive targets for individuals promoting
fraudulent schemes and scams. Scammers use deception, misrepresentation and threats to convince older adults
to send money or provide personal financial information. Most frauds and scams go unreported. 

This webcast will provide an overview of the frauds and scams aimed at older adults, discuss legal protections,
and provide resources to aid older adults defrauded by the individuals and business that promote these scams.
The webcast will also focus on efforts by the Federal Trade Commission to prevent older adults from falling
victim to these scams. 

Closed captioning will be available on this webcast. A link with access to the captions will be shared through GoToWebinar’s chat box shortly before the webcast start time.

  • Odette Williamson, Staff Attorney, National Consumer Law Center

    Commission
