Older people are often considered more susceptible to fraud due to a combination of factors. Here are some reasons why older adults may be targeted or fall victim to fraud more frequently:

Lack of Familiarity

with Technology

Older adults who did not grow up with modern technology may be less experienced in recognizing and navigating potential online scams, phishing attempts, or fraudulent schemes conducted through phone calls or emails.
