Seven Seventeen Credit Union recognizes that the growing senior population is increasingly being targeted for a broad range of financial exploitation, which can include:
Taking money or property
Forging an older person's signature
Getting an older person to sign a deed, will, or power of attorney through dishonesty
Acquiring or using the older person's property or possessions without permission
Promising care in exchange for money or property, but not delivering it
Charity or donation scams
