Consumer Contact: Elder Financial Abuse 

Russ Van Arsdale was in for this week’s Consumer Contact talking about elder financial abuse.

Russ told us about a new program called Senior$afe, that will be training bank and credit union employees how to spot signs of elder financial abuse when elderly people are making transactions.

If you suspect a senior is being abused, financially or otherwise you can call Maine Adult Protective Services at 1-800-624-8404.
