It’s estimated Montana seniors have lost over $1 billion to securities fraud and scams in just the last four years. You can help us fight back against fraud in our state by keeping an extra set of eyes on the finances of your senior family members to ensure they are not being taken advantage of or taking unreasonable risk.
