National Elder Fraud Hotline
The U.S. Department of Justice’s National Elder Fraud Hotline, managed by the Office for Victims of Crime, provides services to all adults ages 60 and older, who may be victims of financial fraud. The hotline is staffed by experienced case managers who provide personalized support to callers by assessing the needs of the victim, and identifying relevant next steps. While the hotline does not serve in an investigatory capacity, case managers will identify appropriate reporting agencies, and provide information to callers to assist them in reporting, or connect callers directly with the appropriate agency.
