The National Council on Aging estimates that up to two million American citizens older than 65 have been exploited financially, which makes such offenses the third most common type of elder abuse. That’s why an organization known as the South Eastern Arizona Community Unique Services, or SEACUS, is holding a conference next Thursday which aims to help prevent financial abuse among senior citizens. The Elder Abuse Prevention Conference will offer tips to help seniors avoid con artists, telemarketing schemes, fraudulent charities, and more. To make sure that those interested are able to attend, SEACUS is even offering transportation to those who think they could benefit from the event.
