Elder Fraud Scams: Awareness and Avoidance

May 3 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Elder Fraud Scams: Awareness and Avoidance

The law enforcement community has seen a steady increase in both the number of scams targeting seniors, as well as the loss amounts to victims. Education and awareness are vital tools in helping seniors avoid becoming victims. Our presentation is designed to give current information on common scams happening in the community and how to recognize them before becoming a victim. It will include:

  • Current scams and variations
  • Key elements to a successful scam
  • Red flags and warning signs
  • How to avoid becoming a victim
  • What to do if you believe you may be a victim


Presented by: Christine Burke, Assistant District Attorney, Section Chief of the Elder Fraud Unit, Queens District Attorney’s office

Christine Burke is the Section Chief of the Elder Fraud Unit, within the Frauds Bureau. She has been a prosecutor for 28 years, all but 8 of them have been served in the Queens District Attorney’s Office.  Christine investigates and prosecute individuals who target older adults as victims of crimes, predominantly crimes perpetrated in the form of scams and/or frauds.

Christine Burke is a member of the Queens Enhanced Multi-Disciplinary Team of the NYC Elder Abuse Center of Weill-Cornell Medicine, wherein a group of professionals from various areas of expertise come together twice per month to discuss complex situations involving abuse and exploitation of older adults.
