ABSTRACT

Annual Report to Congress on Department of Justice Activities to Combat Elder Fraud and Abuse [October 18, 2021]   [open pdf - 5MB]

From the Overview: "The Department is proud of its many accomplishments over the past year documented in this report. In this section, a number of programmatic highlights are described. Fraud and abuse against older adults continues unabated, if not exacerbated, during the pandemic and the ongoing opioid crisis. In the face of these unprecedented challenges, the Department's response in turn has been unrelenting and robust. Learn about the Department's enforcement actions around money mules, how the Department is assisting older victims, new online elder abuse training for law enforcement, public outreach efforts designed to prevent abuse and fraud, a first-ever report by the FBI's IC3 [Internet Crime Complaint Center] on elder fraud, and the Department's embrace of the new Promoting Alzheimer's Awareness to Prevent Elder Abuse Act of 2020 that amended the Elder Abuse Prevention and Prosecution Act of 2017, designed to increase access to justice for victims with Alzheimer's disease and related dementias."
