Financial Exploitation & The Elderly


The annual cost of financial exploitation of the elderly is approximately $3 billion.

Watertown lawyer Anthony Marrone of Menter, Rudin & Trivelpiece appeared on 7 News at Noon to discuss this form of elder abuse.

He said 90 percent of financial exploitation cases involve family members taking advantage of the elderly and that for every 1 case of financial exploitation that gets reported, 44 go unreported.

There are multiple resources if you suspect someone you know is a victim of financial exploitation: local sheriff's office, Jefferson County Adult Protective Services and local attorneys familiar with these types of cases.
