History of the Committee

The Montana Elder Fraud and Exploitation Prevention committee was formed in September of 2016.  Through education and awareness, the committee is hopeful that more cases are actually reported, there is more recourse for our older residents who are victimized and that eventually there are fewer and fewer cases of elder fraud.

Guiding Principles

  • The committee is hopeful that through advocacy and training, elder justice stakeholders and professionals who are uniquely positioned to identify risk of elder fraud and/or abuse are empowered and encouraged to report to the proper agencies.  
  • The committee is hopeful that through advocacy and training, elder justice stakeholders are empowered and encouraged to work together to end the ever growing threat of elder fraud and exploitation.
