Financial exploitation involves an individual taking advantage of, for instance, an elderly person, getting access to their medical information, to their financial information, to their property that they own. Unfortunately, some folks have taken advantage of the elderly in this way, got access to their bank accounts, cleared out their bank accounts, got access to their real property records and actually transferred the property from the elderly person to themselves.
There’s a vast amount of financial exploitation of the elderly that’s going on. It’s not just individuals that are professional thieves, it’s a lot of times family members that have taken advantage of their financial situation. We at D’Amore Law Group handle those types of cases to try and help the elderly person that’s been exploited.
