According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau will be involved in a free forum on protecting the nation’s elderly from financial abuse. The forum, which will take place in Cleveland, is intended to help professionals who work with the elderly design ways to help protect them. In recent years, more people have spent their time and energy taking advantage of the elderly, and using more and more technology to financially exploit them. The hope is that people from social workers to bankers can keep an eye on their elderly clients, and hopefully help put a stop to some of the abuses.
