I was recently welcomed back as a guest on The Steve Pomeranz Show, hosted by nationally recognized investment advisor Steve Pomeranz. Steve has made his program a fantastic resource for wealth planning, financial literacy, and smart allocation of assets in a volatile economy. It's therefore an honor to return to Steve's show and discuss a serious danger to seniors: elder financial abuse and undue influence.
Steve and I talked further on my new book The Wolf at the Door: Undue Influence and Elder Financial Abuse along with ways families can protect their elderly loved ones from financial exploitation. Among the topics we discussed were:
- Statistics on elder financial abuse in America.
- Why perpetrators of abuse are so often family members.
- Warning signs of elder financial abuse.
- Watching out for bad trustees.
I'd like to thank Steve again for being such a gracious host and helping to spread awareness of the elder financial abuse epidemic that endangers seniors, families, and entire communities. With shows like his, we can bring the fight to wrongdoers and more effectively protect our elders.
