5 Signs Of Elder Financial Fraud

Financial Exploitation of Seniors

Financial exploitation of the elderly and vulnerable adults is a growing concern in Minnesota. A 2015 study estimated that seniors lose $36.48 billion each year to exploitation, fraud and trust abuse. Exploitation of seniors by groups or individuals pressuring or misleading seniors into unwise financial decisions is common and a growing trend in Minnesota. Fraud involving coercing seniors into disclosing personal information and then sending money has occurred in Minnesota and is also on the rise. Trust abuse of seniors usually involves the family or close acquaintance of a senior, perhaps one who has power-of-attorney to manage the senior’s finances, failing to use their position for the benefit of the senior. All three methods of financial exploitation can be devastating or even embarrassing to victims. Learn how to recognize the signs that your loved ones may be falling victim to these schemes.

Report suspected maltreatment or financial exploitation of a senior or vulnerable adult to the Minnesota Adult Abuse Reporting Center at 844-880-1574 which is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Five Signs that Indicate Elder Financial Fraud – from AARP

  1. Funds are vanishing from accounts, belongings are vanishing from the house, and bills go unpaid. Or, your loved one is confused about financial transactions.
  2. Spending habits have changed and all of a sudden, they’re secretive about money or says they needs more. Or there are unexplained credit card charges.
  3. A family member is not forthcoming about Mom or Dad’s finances.
  4. A new person has befriended your parent, a friend, or you to the point of weirdness. This person’s name has been added on a joint account and/or has power of attorney. Property titles, refinanced mortgages, deeds, wills, trusts or other documents have inexplicable changes.
  5. There are no checks and balances for a professional caregiver who has access to a loved one’s money.

Local student performs card shuffling marathon

After 17 hours, 17 minutes and 17 seconds, Charles Crutchfield, 1323 Hillcrest, ended a card shuffling marathon he undertook last week. Charlie, who accepted the challenge on a bet with his friends, performed 17 shuffles per hours, 17 one-handed shuffles every hour and 17 stair climbing shuffles during his card campaign. (17 happens to be his lucky number).

Charlie start at 6:42:43 a.m. and went, without break, until midnight. Nourishment was provided via a straw by his friends and his mother. The cast on his leg is the result of a nonrelated injury (basketball) and Charlie suffered only from a sore knuckles.

Representatives from Stancraft Products, a playing card manufacturer, kept him under close scrutiny and a log was kept, which will be sent to the Guinness Book of World Records.

As we figure it, Charlie completed 17,634 shuffles. He is thirteen-years old and a student at Highland Park junior high.

Dr. Crutchfield talks about having fuller, natural, more beautiful lips

What are the current treatments for lip injections?

We do two things. We do a minimally invasive procedure called Perk(tm) for the lips. This is an in-office treatment, similar to a peel, but it lightly plumps and locks in moisture to reveal a well-shaped, pouty lip. It’s a treatment that smooths and plumps lips naturally using several ingredients: peony extract, aloe extract, peppermint oil, hydrating SPF lip balm that includes bees wax, vitamin E and extra virgin olive oil.

The lip plumping effect works immediately and each patient is provided with an at-home treatment serum that maintains the lip fullness for several weeks up to one month.

Why can it be so darn hard to lose weight?

We all know people who can eat whatever they want, and it seems as though they never gain an ounce. Other people can just look at a piece of cake too long, and it seems like they gain weight.

Why is this?

It is all about numbers, all about calories “in” and calories “out.” In other words, it is about how many calories you eat and how many calories your body burns. If you eat more calories than you burn, you gain weight. If you burn more calories than you eat, you lose weight.


There are four factors that affect our weight: genetics, eating habits, exercise or other activities, and time. But there is a hidden factor in the “genetics” component of these factors. It is known as the basal metabolic rate (BMR). Continue reading Why can it be so darn hard to lose weight?
