ICFE Webinar Series (Accepted for AFCPE/CFP CEs and Accredited for CLEs)

Elder Care Victimization: When Trusted Individuals
Become Trust Violators: One CE Webinar

(December 8th, 2:00 pm EST)

According to a recent combined study from MetLife Mature Market Institute (MMI), The National Committee for the Prevention of Elder Abuse (NCPEA), The Center for Gerontology at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University entitled, "Broken Trust: Elders, Family and Finances" reports that the annual financial loss by victims of elder financial abuse is estimated to be at least $2.6 billion dollars. It is vitally important for attorneys and any persons who help the elderly with their finances which could be Counselors, Financial Planners, Accountants, Insurance Agents, etc. to be educated about fraud and financial ethics when it comes to family financial fraud. Often times, it may only be the client's attorney or financial advisor who can uncover and reveal financial abuse that can be occurring within a client's trusted relationship.

Webinar leader/instructor Peggy Tracy, MBA, CFP®, CDFA®, CFE, having extensive training on fraud criminology relating to family finances, has made it her personal goal to educate attorneys, financial planners, accountants, insurance planners, and anyone else who might be able to spot fraudulent criminal activity involving family finances.
