Financial exploitation has been called “the crime of the 21st century” with one study suggesting that older Americans lost at least $2.9 billion to financial exploitation by a broad spectrum of perpetrators in 2010. Awareness and prevention is the first step. Planning ahead for financial wellbeing and the possibility of diminished financial capacity is critical. Join Adam Hamilton as he walks us through the steps to better protect ourselves and our loved ones from common frauds, scams and other types of elder financial exploitation.
People’s United Bank, The River Center and the Peterborough Town Library are excited to announce their collaboration for this April’s Money Smart Week which will run from April 22nd – 29th.
