Financial Abuse Against the Elderly

Americans may not realize that people over the age of 50 control over 70% of the nation's wealth. Due to many reasons, including Alzheimer's, dementia, and disabilities that make the elderly dependent upon their caregivers, they are not only vulnerable but a perfect target for financial abuse.

Financial elder abuse is taking advantage of an elderly person by forcing them, through undue influence or under duress, to part with their money or other assets.

Examples of financial elder abuse include:

  • Stealing money or property
  • Forging their signature
  • Convincing an older person to sign a deed, will, or power of attorney through deception or undue influence
  • Confidence crimes "cons" which use deception to gain the elderly person's confidence
  • Fraudulent scams

Of course, no two cases are the same, and in order to protect yourself and your family, you need to retain the representation of an experienced legal professional from Yonano Law Offices right away. We can investigate to determine who is liable, whether it is a caregiver, medical professional, family member, or another party, and hold the at-fault party accountable.

Taking Action Against Perpetrators

California has a strong set of laws that protect the elderly and senior citizens from all types of financial abuse by those close to them. The elder abuse law, found in the California Welfare & Institutions Code, holds any person liable who "takes, secretes, appropriates, obtains, or retains the real or personal property of an elder or dependent adult for wrongful use or with intent to defraud, or both" or "by undue influence." The same law applies to anyone who assists the person committing elder financial abuse.

If you think that you or an elderly loved is being taken advantage of financially, it is important to reach out to an attorney as soon as possible. Yonano Law has experienced attorneys representing family members in proceedings to determine if financial elder abuse has taken place.
