Here is an excerpt from his website, Protecting the Elderly:
David M. Kessler is a retired Police Officer (former Commander of the Financial Crimes Unit) with the Dekalb County Police Department in Decatur, Georgia. He has dedicated his professional life to providing education and guidance for public and private sector professionals on the topic of exploitation of the elderly, and making certain those who prey on elderly victims are punished.
David was recruited by the Ohio Attorney General in 1999 to serve as Chief Investigator of the Attorney General's Consumer Protection Unit. Within this role, David's primary focus became the protection of senior citizens against those who would prey upon them.
With extensive knowledge and vast experience in the area of elder exploitation, David chose to leave the government sector in 2008 to form his own consulting business, Protecting The Elderly. As a keynote speaker and trainer on the topic of exploitation of the elderly, David addresses all facets of these crimes, including: Undue Influence, Sweetheart Swindles, Power of Attorney Thefts, and Home Improvement Scams.
