Elder Crimes and Distraction Scams for Security Professionals

This dramatic awareness lecture from Vested Security Solutions is intended to arm attendees with the requisite knowledge to potentially eliminate the ubiquitous exploitation of the elderly, and those in our communities who lack the circumspection to realize a scam is afoot.  This program is available in several different formats, each geared for different audiences:

  • Elder Crimes and Distraction Scams for Law Enforcement
  • Elder Crimes and Distraction Scams for Security Professionals
  • Elder Crimes and Distraction Scams

 Vested Security is committed to tendering the highest level of service to clients.  As such, our seasoned presenters and lecturers have the ability to tailor these presentations in order to meet the needs of a target audience.  Accordingly, this presentation can be modified to focus purely on aspects of elder crimes, purely on aspects of distraction scams, a combination of both, or any permutation thereof.  With education at the heart of our mission, Vested Security lecturers have been proud to present these awareness lectures to many civic groups and religious organizations, thereby exposing the possible scams that could affect victims from within that community.  Furthermore, Vested lecturers have gladly presented this series to corporations and retail business that can often fall prey to clever scam artists.  Lastly, Vested Security Solutions has presented this seminar to law enforcement and security professionals to expand their knowledge base.   

This Elder Crime seminar will expose a broad range of crimes typically committed against the elderly. This dynamic and informative presentation will feature a PowerPoint show, depicting various con games and scams, which target the senior citizen population.  Among them, this lecture will emphasize “Diversion and Confidence Burglaries,” as well as “The Sweetheart Swindle,” two of the more pervasive elder crimes that plague seniors in communities across the country.  The “Elder Crime” presentation will also accentuate the under-reporting of scams and cons by elder victims, thereby misrepresenting the scope of the problem. 

In the Security Industry presentation, lecturers will exercise a format that reinforces the most effective tools and tactics that can impact the detection, deterrence, investigation and prosecution of elder crimes; presenters also underscore the impediments that can affect security professionals in housing and recreation complexes, as well as those security specialist who function in America’s shopping malls. 

The Distraction Scams seminar is closely intertwined with the Elder Crimes block.  This half of the lecture will focus on those distraction scams often committed by members of a sect commonly known as the "Criminal Gypsy Community".  This program—also delivered in a vivid PowerPoint show—will cover both commercial and residential scams.  Most particularly, this dramatic awareness lecture will discuss the current, active transient criminal groups that are operating nationwide, targeting businesses, homes, churches, and shopping malls.  In addition, Vested Security’s presenters—who have gained first-hand knowledge during past investigations—will highlight the methods that are employed by these groups to successfully locate, stalk, and select victims—as well as the common methodologies utilized to execute a successful distraction crime against a prospective victim. 

For the Security Industry program, the attendees will digest ways to adopt an accepted criminal profile for scam artists, as well as ways to use the local media to disseminate warnings or bulletins to citizens.  Once again, lecturers will exercise a format that reinforces the most effective tools and tactics that can impact the detection, deterrence, investigation and prosecution of distraction scams. 

The Elder Crimes and Distraction Scams series is imperative for any investigator—government or civil—who is involved in the apprehension of scam artists.  This presentation can prove to be thoroughly valuable, heightening the awareness of security officers, police patrol officers, community policing personnel, and detectives whose functions in the field directly relate to the capture of this criminal subculture.
