Criminals and scam artists target everyone, especially the elderly. They make telephone calls and monitor their mail; they find any way they can to take advantage. Seniors are losing billions of dollars each year due to financial exploitation. On Thursday, October 10th, Champion Credit Union was joined by 50 community members during their first annual Elder Fraud and Financial Exploitation Conference at the Colonial Theater in Canton, North Carolina. This event focused on senior citizens and their caregivers, but welcomed anyone who wanted to attend.
