Elder financial abuse has been called the "crime of the 21st century." Know what to watch for to minimize the chances you or a loved one will become a victim:

  • Isolation from family, friends, community, and other stable relationships
  • New "best friends"
  • Unusual degree of fear or submissiveness
  • Anxiety about personal finances
  • Withdrawn behavior or disheveled appearance
  • Missed appointments or uncharacteristic nonpayment for services
  • Missing belongings or property
  • Change in routine
  • Significant changes in spending patterns
