More than 30 million Americans fall victim to financial fraud every year, losing an estimated $50 billion of measurable, direct costs. The increasing incidence of financial fraud has underscored the importance of consistent and accurate advice to victims.
Join us for a webinar to unveil a unique, new resource guide, Taking Action: An Advocate’s Guide to Assisting Victims of Financial Fraud. The FINRA Investor Education Foundation and the National Center for Victims of Crime collaborated to create this important guide that gives victim advocates a roadmap for how to respond in the wake of a financial crime.
The webinar will discuss strategies for addressing the major types of financial crime—including investment fraud, identity theft, mortgage and lending fraud, and mass-marketing scams. Tools and resources you can use to assist victims of financial fraud in regaining their financial footing and addressing the emotional trauma they have suffered will be highlighted.
Taking Action: An Advocate’s Guide to Assisting Victims of Financial Fraud is available for download or ordering from within the Program and Outreach Toolkit section of the FINRA Foundation’s SaveandInvest.org Fraud Center.
