Safe & Savvy – A guide to help older people avoid abuse, scams and fraud

28 November 2019

We know that people over the age of 50 are at risk of financial abuse,
scams and fraud. This is often called elder financial abuse.

Elder financial abuse can take many forms and happen to anyone.
It is a mistake to think it couldn’t happen to you or those you love.

Even though it’s hard to discuss, the more we understand what elder

action to prevent it from happening.

This guide is for our older customers and their loved ones. We want
you to be safe and savvy when managing your money.
