IMA Broadcast Webinar: Elder Justice – Who are the criminals behind the scams? How do they do it?

May 16, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT

Calling all older adults and people who care about them: please join us for the second in a three-part series on Elder Justice!

This series aims to show you what fraud against older adults looks like, why criminals are targeting older adults, and how we can work together to keep older adults safe. As May 15 is National Senior Fraud Awareness Day, our Elder Justice events in May will focus on financial frauds that impact older adults.

In this second session, you’ll hear from government experts about the most recent trends in scams targeting older adults. You’ll also learn more about the criminals who are using these frauds to steal money.

Wayne Jacobs, special agent in charge of the Criminal Division at the FBI’s Washington, DC field office will moderate the conversation. Other speakers include:

– Rachel Yurkovich, management and program analyst at the FBI’s Internet Crimes Complaint Center
– Emma Fletcher, senior data researcher at the Federal Trade Commission
– Matt Reynolds, supervisory special agent in the Economic Crimes Unit at FBIHQ and the FBI’s national program manager for Elder Justice

The webinar is open to everyone who’d like to attend. If you have questions, please email events@infragardncr.org.

The Elder Justice project is a joint initiative among the ABA Foundation, the FINRA Investor Education Foundation, AARP, the FBI’s Washington, DC field office and the National Capital Region chapter of InfraGard, or InfraGardNCR.

We hope to see you online!
