Protecting older Americans from financial exploitation

The average victim of elder financial abuse loses upwards of $120,000. Recognizing financial abuse as the most common type of elder abuse, and accepting responsibility as a first-line defense, Maryland nonprofit financial counseling agency, CCCSMD and AARP Maryland are leading a statewide awareness campaign in collaboration with Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh, the Maryland Department of Aging, the Maryland Commissioner of Financial Regulation, and a Coalition of state agencies, Project SAFE, and other community partners to “Protect Older Americans from Financial Exploitation” — declared PROTECT Week.
