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.
