MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -
It comes in various forms including physical, emotional, and financial.
Elderly people are often victims of scams, such as crooks claiming to offer extravagant vacations, thousands of dollars or ways to help another family member out.

"This is something we see a lot and it is happening more and more, not just here in Montgomery, but around where people are living off the income of their parents or relatives," said Bobby Stephenson, the Director of Marketing at Hillside Terrace. "I've seen people in the hospital or in our facility and during that time period, somebody has a debit card and they are taking the patient's money."
