Scams robs millions of older adults of money and property. New findings describe how older adults recover from elder financial exploitation -- a complicated multi-step process.

The REPORT: Recovery from elder financial exploitation: a framework for policy and research, outlines the stages of scam recovery and why some older adults are more likely to get their money back than others.

The report identifies areas to help improve the recovery of funds, including:
  • Greater consumer protections on common payment methods used to defraud older adults;
  • Empowering older adults and caregivers to recognize financial exploitation and to know their rights in recovering fraud losses.
