Financial exploitation of older vulnerable people

Financial exploitation of older vulnerable people

Scotland needs an innovative framework to address effectively the financial exploitation of our older vulnerable people. Current efforts are fragmented and often ineffective in protecting victims. We recognise that grooming and manipulation take place, also relationship fraud and even predatory marriage. However many find that raising concerns about someone’s predatory behaviour towards an older relative lacks a coordinated productive response. A Government task force would bring together expertise from academic, clinical, forensic, legal and frontline services to create a new approach to protection from financial exploitation.
