Welcome to #FraudFriday.
This is the first #FraudFriday Alert issued by the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office.
Every other Friday, the experts who prosecute these devastating financial crimes will offer warnings about the latest ploys targeting consumers in Los Angeles County – with a special emphasis on safeguarding seniors.
Educating seniors about financial fraud is one of District Attorney Jackie Lacey's top priorities.
In an effort to fulfill that goal and in anticipation of World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (June 15), we are dedicating our first #FraudFriday Alert to financial elder abuse.
Visit our website at http://da.lacounty.gov/seniors for detailed information on more than a dozen different scams targeting people ages 65 and older. There you will find printer-friendly versions of these materials and a video message from District Attorney Lacey.Read more...
