Elder Abuse: Partnerships with Law Enforcement to Protect Seniors (MN. USA)

Scam artists, telemarketers top list of fears for Otter Tail seniors
Perham Enterprise Bulletin
December 10, 2008

Otter Tail County Triad was formed in 2008 and is a partnership of law enforcement, senior citizens and community groups dedicated to promote senior safety and to reduce the fear of crime that seniors often experience.
Triad conducted a survey of the seniors in the county through local nutrition sites to see what their real safety concerns were.

Highest on the list were telemarketers and scam artists who fraudulently use the telephone to “steal” important information from them, such as social security numbers, bank account numbers and credit card numbers.

Get to meet and know your local law enforcement when they make presentations on safety in your community or area. Get to know who the senior agencies and other businesses are who are concerned about your safety and can provide you with information. But mostly be in the know about the schemes and scams that uncaring, selfish people will use to take advantage of your kindness or vulnerabilities.
