Scams Tip Sheet Download
Now, more than ever, New York seniors are falling prey to scams perpetrated against them by members of their very own community. Your local handyman, the automotive repair shop right in town and even the home health aide that’s supposed to be protecting your elderly loved ones from harm may be quietly taking advantage of them. How? Doctored Invoices for services not provided, grossly inflated fees, and checks written out to cash by someone other than the senior but signed by them. The manner in which these crimes occur are varied but one thing is always the same: they target the vulnerable.
At Cona Elder Law, we understand that the impact of these crimes can be devastating, both financially and emotionally, as they exploit the trust and dependence that seniors often place in those around them.
Unlike scams that occur over the phone or through the internet, which can be challenging to track and prosecute, the local businesses and individuals who defraud the elderly can be identified and held accountable. At Cona Elder Law, we are committed to aggressively pursuing the return of their property through the courts, ensuring that justice is served. We firmly believe that by exposing these malicious actors and seeking restitution on behalf of the victims, we can make a significant impact in protecting our community's senior population.
