As the world has transitioned into a period of quarantining and social distancing, many have adjusted to operating daily life digitally. This shift also opened up new avenues for fraudsters to exploit one of the most vulnerable populations during this pandemic. At IDology, we have found a dramatic rise in attempted fraud using stolen data from those who are age 65 and older.
To help combat the uptick in fraud attempts against senior citizens, we’ve created a series of instructional and informative videos on preventing these attacks. Please use these videos as a resource and share with anyone who may benefit from learning how to avoid targeted scams and protect their data during these unprecedented times. You can also read more about new research on increasingly popular fraud tactics and consumer trust in our latest blog.
