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?
Some people may be financially dependent, but the relationship should not create a posture of begging on your part. A respectful relationship built on love can be negotiated to where you feel heard and free to ask for your wants without a sense of fear, or the need to beg.

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.

We are joined by Kay Bransford, President and Chief Curator at Memory Banc, a company that helps families organize important documents and family memories when loved ones are no longer able to do so. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services reports that at least 70% of Americans turning 65 will need three years of care, and many people struggle to care for loved ones because they don’t have the right legal paperwork or the information to be able to act on their behalf. This is where MemoryBanc helps. www.memorybanc.org
Also, joining in the discussion is Mark Friese, Vice President of Special Needs Planning at Merrill Lynch who will discuss the financial side of being organized and ready for the inevitable aging process which often includes a disabling condition.
Listen to the "Older and Active" show here on BTR coming up at 8:00 CDT for tips on how boomers and above can get/stay healthy.If being healthy isn't your thing, how about celebrating Cellophane Tape or Grape Popsicles? Or you can go through the day singing, "Who's afraid of the big bad Wolf?" That should make those around you scratch their heads. If that doesn't work, wear bloomers on the job today.
