Report on financial abuse against elderly to be released by senators

Posted:
ALBANY, N.Y. – Two State Senators are expected to release a report on financial abuse against one of the most vulnerable populations in the state.

Senators David Valesky and Patrick Gallivan will be at the Capitol to provide the details of the report in hopes of protecting senior citizens. 

According to the senators, financial abuse among elderly New York residents has become a growing trend, with those residents becoming the target of scams, thefts, and solicitations, many times involving someone they may know or trust. 

Valesky and Gallivan, along with support from a group of senators will propose legislation to protect consumers and increase penalties to deter that type of criminal behavior.
