FINANCIAL ELDER ABUSE

•    Often an elderly homeowner has a Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC). This
     money is based upon the equity in the home. Access to this money is derived
     from a credit card or checking account;

•    Crooks have at times, based on illegal use of the checking account or credit
     card, withdrawn money from the HELOC.
