As individuals age they become increasingly vulnerable to many types of fraudulent practices and scams, intending to swindle them out of their hard earned money and personal and real property. Nursing homes that provide inadequate care or abuse their residents yet receive payment for quality services are guilty of fraudulent business practices. Unethical caregivers can persuade elderly individuals into schemes and scams that deprive the older person of assets and property.
