Senior Financial Abuse and Exploitation: Understanding Red Flags, Recent Legislation and Collaborative Opportunities

  • When: August 14, 2019
  • Time: 12PM – 2PM ET
  • Level: All

New federal and state laws require financial institutions to take a more proactive role in addressing scams, theft and fraud targeting senior clients, putting financial crime professionals and financial relationship managers on the front lines for fighting this growing problem. The added obligations coincide with a fourfold jump over a four-year period in the number of suspicious activity reports (SARs) filed with the Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) that flagged potential senior abuse to 63,500 in 2017. This in-depth webinar will discuss emerging types of fraud against seniors and other vulnerable people and provide practical strategies for investigating and resolving senior financial abuse.
