Steering clear of senior focused scams is a good practice for anyone over the age of 65. Thanks to an aging population that is a little less internet savvy and a lot more polite, the FBI notes that seniors also are more likely to not report the scam until it is much too late. In fact, crooks rely on the fact that seniors are often poor witnesses, reporting the scam much too late and without too many details that can point the police in the direction of the bad guys.
If you have ever received a phone call or email that just didn’t seem right, you may have just missed a scam. Unfortunately, seniors often fall victim to cunning crooks who set their sights on a more polite and unsuspecting generation. The FBI notes that con artists often choose to go after aging adults because seniors make poor witnesses and have a large nest egg with excellent credit; these qualities make it too hard for a dishonest crook to resist.

When an emergency strikes, the situation can quickly become complicated if a person with dementia is affected. In unfamiliar or stressful situations, people with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia often become confused, agitated or aggressive. First responders on the scene could easily mistake the behavior for uncooperativeness, when it’s actually caused by the disease.
