Any seminar or discussion about financial exploitation of Seniors must include the topic of judically sanctioned financial exploitation of Seniors via unlawful and abusive guardianships and conservatorships. Read the GAO's 2010 scathing report: "Guardianships: Cases of Financial Exploitation, Neglect and Abuse of Seniors." And please read NASGA's website as well. Forewarned is forearmed!
