Common senior fraud scams

Sadly, in California, senior citizens are frequently the targets of fraudsters and other unscrupulous individuals who try to take advantage of them. Seniors are frequently the victims of consumer fraud because they are oftentimes in an emotionally vulnerable position. Moreover, retirees are frequently perceived as having a lot of money that thieves want to take.

There are many common ways that fraudsters these days are trying to trick senior citizens. For example, given the rising cost of medication, many people will sell discount drugs to seniors that turn out to be outright fakes or simply not what the seller represented the drug to be. The fraud aside, if a senior citizen takes these products, then they may wind up in a worsened medical condition.

Other common scams revolve around death and burial. Many senior citizens are particularly vulnerable while they are grieving the loss of a loved one. Sometimes, even funeral directors can get on in these sorts of scams by over-selling products and services a person does not need.

In another type of scam, people peddle products that promise to make senior citizens look and feel younger. Unfortunately, these products rarely work as promised. In some cases, these products can be harmful to those who use them.

When a California senior discovers he or she has been the victim of consumer fraud, he or she may feel hopeless and not know what to do. The authorities, after all, are frequently unable to help for a number of reasons. On the other hand, they may have lost a lot of money because of the scam. They should know that compassionate and effective legal assistance may be available.
