Why Senior Investment Fraud Often Goes Unreported

Although many cases of senior investment fraud are reported—and the number of reported cases seems to be increasing—most experts believe that many more cases go unreported.

There are multiple reasons for this, including:

  • Mental or physical conditions that impair the victim’s ability to communicate
  • Concern about losing autonomy if family members find out about the scam
  • Not knowing where to turn
  • Embarrassment at being swindled
  • Fear of retaliation from the scammer
  • Not wanting to “burn bridges” or hurt anyone’s feelings

Although falling victim to an investment scam can be scary and embarrassing, don’t be afraid to seek help if you or a family member has become a victim. By reporting the investment scam and taking steps to hold the fraudster accountable, you have a chance to recover your losses and make sure that no one else is taken in by the scam.
