About Us

Our Mission: To educate elders and caregivers on fraud, prevention, and protection.

As an advocate for elders, Daniel Klibanoff spearheaded the Elder Protective Services project in order to support and give back to the senior community. The name Elder Protective Services truly encompasses Daniel’s desire to serve and protect elders.

Elder fraud is a serious and ongoing affair that can be mitigated through education and awareness. Daniel believes that providing practical information about the warning signs of elder fraud can prevent and protect seniors from possible financial exploitation and potential psychological abuse. Elder Protective Services also encourages families and caregivers to be aware of these red flags and additional action steps to safeguard their loved ones.


Our mission is to make senior citizens aware of the risks that they face regarding scams and fraud.


Elder abuse may occur within any relationship where there is an expectation of trust, which causes harm or distress to an older person. Our goal is to educate everyone on the different types of scams to avoid falling into the trap.


Financial abuse is becoming a widespread and hard-to-detect issue. Our purpose is to help you expose abusers and protect the abused or neglected.


Frequently Asked Questions

Elder fraud is defined as a crime targeting and deceiving older adults in an attempt to gain money, financial information, or personal information usually for the purpose of exploitation.

Recent studies show that the common senior scams include: tech support scams, Social Security or Medicare impersonators, romance frauds, false utility representatives, and most recently Covid-19-related scams.

There are many warning signs or red flags that indicate an interaction or message is fraudulent. Some of the major warning signs include:

  • pressure to send money immediately
  • threats of law enforcement or government action for noncompliance
  • demands for gift cards, cryptocurrency, money orders or personal checks
  • If you are not expecting a call, email, text, or visitor and you are not 100% sure of the source, do not respond.
  • If you feel pressured to make any form of payment at any time during a phone call or interaction, hang up or walk away.
  • NEVER click on unknown and unexpected links in an email, text message, or pop-up on your computer.
  • If you believe the scam has involved your bank, credit, or other financial organization, contact them immediately to freeze or cancel your cards. Some financial organizations provide a temporary pause on all transactions.
  • Change your passwords! If you have been hacked it is imperative to change your account passwords and use two-factor authentication when possible. Read more about passwords  (can link to blog post here). 
  • Next, it is important to reach out to credit bureaus, like Experian, to restrict access to your credit reports.
  • Finally, submit a complaint to the appropriate government organization:
    • Federal Trade Commision (reportfraud.ftc.gov) for various fraud such as counterfeit checks, lottery scams, and  false utility representatives or bills.
    • Identitytheft.gov (identitytheft.gov/) if someone has gained access to or is using your personal information, like your social security number.
    • Social Security (https://oig.ssa.gov/report/) for SS or IRS imposter scams
    • IRS (https://www.irs.gov/compliance/criminal-investigation/tax-fraud-alerts) for suspected tax fraud.
    • Better Business Bureau (BBB) (bbb.org/scamtracker/) to help others in your area be aware of local scam.
Elder Protective Services was created to provide reliable resources to elders and their caretakers. Each agency resource will provide additional information on who can assist the elder. We recommend you start by identifying the type of scam and reviewing the next-steps in the previous questions.
Being a victim of elder fraud or a senior scam is serious. Criminals excel at hiding their intentions and can deceive even the most experienced or tech-savvy senior. If you cannot reach out to someone you trust to support you through this experience, you can contact us about your case here (link to contact us).
