Michael Hackard was recently a guest in a KGO-810 interview with radio host and journalist Mike Finney, a tireless consumer advocate who has consistently stood for ordinary citizens against scams and financial predation. They discussed The Wolf at the Door: Undue Influence and Elder Financial Abuse, Michael's new book on countering exploitation of vulnerable elders.
Finney and Michael covered a lot of ground in the interview, from Michael's motivations in writing the book to how families can take steps to protect elderly loved ones and themselves from wrongdoers who hijack estates and trusts. When family members are facing a case of elder financial abuse or undue influence, it's important to remember that there are specific legal options available - from a petition for an immediate accounting to trustee removal - to recover assets and property and hold the wrongdoer accountable.
