Financial Fraud and Scams
Each year, millions of elderly Americans fall victim to some type of financial fraud or confidence scheme, including romance, lottery, and sweepstakes scams, to name a few. Criminals will gain their targets’ trust and may communicate with them directly via computer, phone, and the mail or indirectly through the TV and radio.
UCOA Policy Position
Utahns will be prepared to recognize and avoid financial fraud and have access to educational materials and resources to protect themselves and identify, prevent, and report financial fraud and scams.
