The Elder Justice Unit was established to protect senior citizens from fraud, scams and financial exploitation. Too many of our Hamilton County seniors have suffered significant financial harm and emotional trauma from scams. Unfortunately, these crimes are under-reported because the elderly victims are often too embarrassed to make a report or tell anyone.
Our team of highly skilled attorneys and professionals work closely with Adult Protective Services and law enforcement agencies to fight fraud by identifying, investigating and prosecuting offenders when appropriate while also connecting these seniors to community services and supports. Our team, including our public and private partners, will work tirelessly to identify emerging scams and disrupt technology and other methods used to prey on vulnerable seniors.
If you, your loved one or someone you know has been a victim of a scam, fraud or financial exploitation, you can call 513-946-SCAM(7226) for assistance.
