Elder financial fraud involves scammers targeting seniors to steal their money or personal information. These fraudsters often use tactics like deception, manipulation, and emotional appeals to exploit their victims. Common scams include fake lottery winnings, romance scams, family kidnapping, fraudulent investment opportunities, and impostor schemes where criminals pose as trustworthy individuals or organizations.
