When you have a minute, take a look at this article from the York Daily Record. It is highlighting a recent elder fraud case in the PA area. Unfortunately, cases of elder financial abuse are being increasingly common as the nation's population, especially Pennsylvania's large retired population, ages and becomes dependent on others for financial and physical care.
In the example within the York Daily Record, no verdict was reached at the time about the alleged financial fraud. However, this article does bring to light the potential case for financial fraud and one example in how it might look in an elderly population.
