Scams Targeting Seniors
Anyone can fall prey to one of the endless types of scams that fraudsters come up with, and the Goolsby Law Office, LLC, provides assistance to scam victims of any age.
But senior citizens are often particularly targeted by scammers. Seniors may have a life time of savings, and often have a steady source of income from Social Security or a pension. Seniors with declining mental faculties can be especially vulnerable targets.
But Minnesota has good laws protecting seniors. Any company or individual that engages in deceptive business practices, false advertising, or consumer fraud may have to pay additional penalties if the wrongful conduct was against a senior citizen or vulnerable adult.
