Identifying Scams


The Purple Jacket is excited to share a post about how everyone can identify scams – make sure to check out the info-graphic below!

Everyone but especially caregivers should be focused on identifying scams, because they’re proliferating yearly and often target the elderly. In fact, as identified in the graphic below, a full 80% of telemarketing scam victims are seniors! The goal of these scams is usually some form of identity theft. If you’re unaware of what identity theft is, here’s a great resource with additional information on the topic. Once you understand what identity theft risk is, you’ll be more apt to stay vigilant and make sure you’re minimizing the risk of yourself and those you care for in any way possible. This info-graphic really helps with that goal in mind.
