    Some of the most common financial crimes against the elderly are financial abuse, where a person is bullying or outright stealing from an elderly person, sometimes from a trick of confidence and sometimes the defrauding of a family member. There is also elderly fraud or senior fraud, where a criminal deceives an elderly person and deprives them of their retirement nest egg or Social Security income, leaving them destitute and needing whatever financial help they can get. As this, keep your grandparents safe from this serious matter by watching over them.
