​A discussion on ways to detect and prevent the diversion or theft of funds belonging to the elderly.  

Elder abuse, neglect and exploitation occurs in every community. Financial abuse is the diversion or theft of funds belonging to the elderly. This includes funds that are used to pay for basic needs such as housing, food and medical care. It is estimated that only about one in five of these crimes is ever discovered.

Presented by the Marin County Financial Abuse Specialist Team (FAST), a multidisciplinary team of public agency representatives and private professionals from the financial services industry. FAST was formed in 2005 to provide expert forensic assistance in the investigation of complex cases of suspected elder financial abuse. FAST also works to raise public awareness and provide community education through professional training programs.
