Last updated 3/13/2019 at 8:51am
Financial exploitation and physical abuse of senior citizens is a growing concern in Florida. Attorney General Ashley Moody has announced Florida's Senior Protection Team, an intra-agency group of experts working together to fight fraud and abuse that impacts Florida's older citizens.
The team is comprised of leading members from the Attorney General's Office of Statewide Prosecution, Consumer Protection Division and Medicaid Fraud Control Unit. Seniors v. Crime and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement will also actively assist the team with investigations and outreach efforts.
