Most professionals who work with older adults receive training regarding physical and emotional abuse. However, education that focuses specifically on fraud, scams and financial exploitation targeting the older adult population is limited. The prevalence and growth of this type of abuse continues to be well documented through the N.C. Attorney General’s office as well as other government and law enforcement entities.

The Better Business Bureau Consumer Foundation is pleased to offer a training seminar designed specifically to help professionals identify red flags for potential fraud, scams and financial exploitation of your clients.  Our featured presenters are on the forefront of the most current trends in fraud detection and prevention.  They will provide vital information, tools and resources on where to turn when abuse is suspected.

Please make plans to attend this half day seminar on Tuesday, November 13th at Levine Senior Center in Matthews.  NOTE:  CEUs are available for Adult Home Care Staff and Social Workers.  Certificates of Attendance will be offered for other disciplines.  Register TODAY, seating is limited!
