What to Do if You’ve Been Scammed

There are a variety of senior scams, from sweepstakes and phishing schemes to home improvement and Internet fraud to identity theft. If you or a senior loved one has been the victim of a scam, law enforcement officials recommend quick action.

The 2011 AARP Foundation National Fraud Victim Study revealed that only 25 percent of people older than 50 in the U.S. reported to an authority that they had fallen for a scam. According to Statistics Canada, about seven in 10 crimes against older Canadians are never reported to police because victims did not believe the incident was important enough to seek help or because they dealt with the issue personally.
