Massachusetts AG Martha Coakley’s office has prepared several outreach events during NCPW to provide consumers with helpful information and materials. If you are interested in attending, please view our NCPW webpage for additional details.
Other helpful resources that can assist consumers can be found on MA Attorney General’s website. These include the Veterans' Resource Guide and the Savvy Senior Guide. The first is a publication where consumers can find information about resources available to veterans, military service members, and their families. The guide along with a wealth of other veteran resource information can be found at: http://www.mass.gov/ago/consumer-resources/your-rights/veterans-resources/
There has been great concern over the alarmingly fast-growing trend in elder fraud and the increasing number of financially-victimized elders. While the Attorney General’s Office prosecutes many companies and individuals that are committing these crimes, unfortunately fraud cannot be totally eliminated. As such, the Savvy Senior Guide helps consumers protect themselves and their loved ones. The guide along with other information can be found at: http://www.mass.gov/ago/consumer-resources/consumer-information/resources-for-elders/
For additional information regarding Attorney General Martha Coakley’s efforts to inform consumers about ways to make informed decisions to avoid becoming victims of fraud, please see the press release on celebrating NCPW.
