Protect your Senior from Fraud

Fraud: Is your Senior at risk?

Below is a portion of a very official looking letter claiming to be gathering personal information to help you find your windfall. Some worrisome items are a per-minute fee for the phone call and a statement that more information will be requested once you are on the telephone. A careless reading could leave the impression that the sender had indeed found money for you. There is no indication of what the finder's fee will be. With a maiden name and the potential of gathering a social security number or bank account numbers during the phone call, this sender is poised to steal someone's identity and more. 

You decide: Legitimate or con artist?
