Preying on the elderly. While senior citizens should be able to enjoy their “golden years,” they need to beware of fraudsters and other predators. (Photo: Shutterstock)

At the mid-year meeting of the Coalition Against Insurance Fraud in Orlando, Fla., one of the topics discussed involved establishing a partnership between AARP and the Coalition Against Insurance Fraud. Apparently, there are over 37 million members of AARP. That’s a lot of people!

What that also means is the organized fraudster has a huge opportunity to target those who may not be able to defend themselves. It’s unfortunate that in their “golden years,” senior citizens need to keep a lookout for predators who want nothing more than to find elderly victims. Furthermore, credit card companies, insurance carriers and governmental agencies can also find themselves victims of these types of crimes against the elderly.
