Every year, senior citizens in this country are being swindled out of billions of dollars. In a survey conducted by the Investor Protection Trust, the Investor Protection Institute and the American Bar Association, 34 percent of lawyers polled said they are dealing with or expect to have senior clients who have been exploited.
A few years ago, the Investor Protection Trust released a survey that found that more than7.3 million Americans older than 65 already had been victims of fraud. And a recent MetLife survey estimated that seniors older than 60 have lost nearly $3 billion a year to financial abuse. And surprisingly, much of this abuse is not from strangers.
There are lots of scams targeting senior citizens, and according to the experts, some of the more popular ones are: prizes/sweepstakes, investments, charity contributions, loans and mortgages, health, funeral and life insurance.
Most elderly victims of financial abuse don't report fraud because they are either too ashamed, don't realize they are being duped until it's too late to get their money back, or their adult children fail to recognize the problem in time to intervene.
On today’s episode of Your Money. Your Matters, we’ll discuss the issue of scams against senior citizens and what can be done to protect them.
Your Money. Your Matters is a weekly show broadcasting every Tuesday from 11 a.m. to noon Central Time. The program features radio personalities Linda Webb-Mañon and Rick Grady, Cornerstone Credit Union League; Courtney Moran, Cornerstone Credit Union Foundation, and Todd Mark, Consumer Credit Counseling Services.
Do you feel like you need to BEG your partner, your parents or your providers for things you want?

Gray (or grey) hairs, seniors, old farts or whatever you want to call us are literally "Saviors of Governmental Budgets". That's right. Without us there would be no balanced budgets, as many community projects or infrastructure improvements. Remember that the next time you say, or hear someone else give disparaging remarks about the elderly. Jump "In the Pickle Barrel" and get the facts.
Each and everyday we will try to find a way to get out of the pickle barrel we have all found ourselves sharing.

Tranea Prosser, a new author is also known as Comedian MizT.
Until fairly recently, Miz T's "side-splitting" comedy routines was shared primarily with folks in Texas...from Dallas to Houston to the capital city of Austin. But she is a regional star no more...becoming a comic force across the U-S with the release of "Back at 'Ya Lord." Clips from Miz T's comedy album are now airing on Internet radio stations across America and overseas in London.
Where ever there are ears to hear, and a sound system to project her voice, Miz T has been bringing the laughter to folks in all sorts of venues, like churches and banquets. And she does it in a clean, non-profane manner...pleasing to audiences of all ages --- from kids to senior citizens.
As an entertainer Miz T is a triple threat; aside from her comedy, she's also a singer with a powerful voice, along with being an accomplished emcee (MC).
When she's not captivating audiences, Miz T is a devoted and doting mother and grandmother.
