Elder Financial Exploitation (EFE) is a global problem and is on the rise. One of several forms of elder abuse, this type includes theft, fraud, and exploiting the financial resources of older adults. The bad actors in these situations can be scammers, relatives, even a spouse. Older adults are targeted both because of their accumulated wealth and, in some cases, because of their declining physical and mental capabilities. Organizations around the world, including the World Health Organization, national health services, and financial regulators are focused on this issue.
