Financial Exploitation and Fraud Prevention
Fraud comes in many forms. Fraud against vulnerable groups such as the elderly may include scams by strangers, violations of trust by someone you know, or shady practices by unscrupulous businesses. When a family member or caregiver takes unfair advantage of an elderly person, that is frequently referred to as undue influence.
Today, Texas has an aging population and cybercrimes are on the rise. Therefore, protecting vulnerable people from financial exploitation is more important than ever. When it comes to financial exploitation, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. There are strategies you can put in place to help minimize the risks of becoming a victim.
If you or someone you care for is at risk or has been victimized, contact the Law Office of Michael Curran, P.C. to discuss potential options.
