The Senior Source Protects Seniors from Frauds and Scams

Elderly woman sitting on a call with a worried look on her face

When 87-year-old Betty* found out she’d been defrauded by an independent living facility in the Dallas area, she was shocked and distraught.

Betty had made plans to move back to Texas. She signed a lease and took all the steps necessary to move, but at the last minute the facility pulled the rug out from under her – leaving her with no home to move to with less than two days’ notice.

The Elder Financial Safety Center worked closely with Betty and initiated a claim against the facility, which resulted in legal action. Our staff did not rest until this case was settled, and we were able to get her a $25,000 settlement, preventing a bad situation from turning into a tragedy.

What’s even better than a settlement? Not getting defrauded or scammed in the first place! The EFSC at The Senior Source provides education to seniors to help spot red flags to avoid horrible scams and frauds.
