Elder abuse is a growing concern in Wisconsin and Attorney General Brad Schimel is acting. Last year, he created an elder abuse task force dedicated to compiling and utilizing resources to better understand elder abuse and how to respond.
Now, Attorney General Schimel is taking elder abuse to the bank. The Wisconsin Department of Justice released a training video for bank tellers on how to spot elder financial abuse. In a press release, Schimel said,“Tellers at financial institutions are at the frontlines of financial scams. By offering this free training on how to spot financial exploitation at the teller window, we can create an easy defense that will protect consumers.”
