Free Webinar on June 15: Financial Frauds & Scams Against Elders
The National Consumer Law Center, working in cooperation with the Administration for Community Living and the National Legal Resource Center will host a free webinar on Financial Frauds and Scams Against Elders: Government Responses and Resources on Wednesday, June 15, 2016 from 2 to 3:30 p.m. (Eastern Time). The presenters are Naomi Karp, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and David Kirkman, Consumer Protection Division for the North Carolina Department of Justice.
This webinar will examine the fraud and scams aimed at elders, the traits that make elders vulnerable, and state and local government responses. This webinar will also discuss the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau's (CFPB) recent Advisory and Recommendations to financial institutions on preventing and responding to financial exploitation, as well as other CFPB resources available to attorneys, advocates and service providers.
On-line registration is required, but it looks like you can register at the last minute, although there is a maximum limit on the webinar -- 3,000 attendees!
