The authors discuss financial exploitation of the elderly from multi-disciplinary viewpoints. The role of attorneys, including conflicts of interest, is explored along with practical prevention tools and remedies. Ways that financial institutions can protect their customers, including bank reporting projects, are investigated. Roles that the clergy, adult protective services, legislatures, and the police can play are discussed and an appendix of elder abuse hotlines is included.
