What is Financial Elder Abuse in California?
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. 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.
Examples of what is considered financial elder abuse:
- 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, P.C. 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.
