Financial Exploitation of the Elderly


Sadly, seniors are targets of financial exploitation, manipulation and abuse. Abusers may take advantage of an elderly person who has experienced emotional, medical or other age-related problems. Even a seemingly healthy senior can become a victim of financial exploitation.

If you or a loved one was harmed due to financial exploitation, don't hesitate to contact an experienced Santa Rosa elder abuse attorney. Call (707) 575-7141 for a free and confidential consultation. At The Law Offices of Freeman & Freeman, we're prepared to protect your rights. You may be entitled to compensation for your losses.


The following are some examples of financial exploitation of the elderly:

  • Deceptively borrowing or accepting cash
  • Cashing checks without permission
  • Forging a signature of an elder for financial gain
  • Coercing or deceiving an elder into signing a document such as a will or other contract
  • Stealing money or belongings from a senior
  • Taking advantage of conservatorship or power of attorney

The following are some signs and symptoms of financial exploitation:

  • Sudden changes in bank account, such as unexplained withdrawals of money
  • Inclusion of other names on an elder's bank signature card
  • Unexplained withdrawal of funds through ATM card
  • Sudden changes in a financial document such as a will
  • Sudden transfer of assets to a family member or someone outside the family
