New National, Toll Free Hotline Provides Help for Victims of Elder Fraud

National Elder Fraud Hotline: 1-833-FRAUD-11, 1-833-372-8311

For too long and far too frequently, fraudsters have preyed upon our senior citizens, robbing them of their hard-earned savings. To help combat fraud against older Americans and provide services to victims, OVC is pleased to announce the launch of the National Elder Fraud Hotline.

The hotline is staffed by caring professionals who will treat you with dignity and respect. Callers will be assigned a case manager, who will remain their point of contact. A case manager will assist you with reporting the crime and connect you with other resources as needed.

If you or someone you know is a victim of elder fraud, we encourage you to call the National Elder Fraud Hotline at 833–FRAUD–11 (833–372–8311).

The hotline is open Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. eastern time. Services are available for speakers of English, Spanish, and other languages.
