Financial scams and abuses that target older people are happening more and more.
This hotline is a free resource created by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), Office for Victims of Crime for people to report fraud against anyone age 60 or older.
Reporting suspected fraud is the first step.
Reporting can help authorities try to stop those who commit fraud and also help prevent others from becoming victims. Our experts will help you navigate this process.

The hotline is staffed by professionals who know how to support victims of fraud. Don’t worry, you can count on our case managers to be caring and understanding.
Personalized service at no cost to you.
