Financial fraud targeting older adults has become so prevalent that it has been called the crime of the 21st century. Older adults are thought to have a significant amount of money sitting in their accounts, but it is not just wealthy older adults who are targeted. Low-income older adults are also at risk of financial abuse. Financial scams often go unreported or can be difficult to prosecute, so they are considered a low-risk crime. However, they are devastating to many older adults and can leave them in a very vulnerable position with no way to recoup their losses.

Lynne Perryman, Vice President and Control Manager at JPMorgan Chase, joins us to discuss this alarming topic and answers your burning questions. Learn how to recognize a financial scam or fraud, what to do and how to respond if you are targeted, and when and how to report scam or fraud.
