Billions of dollars are being stolen from elder victims
each year. While the scammers are mostly overseas, there is a black-market
economy of gift cards, cash, and cryptocurrency flourishing within the U.S.
Sadly, when the thousands of victims each year report these crimes to the
police, they are told, “Sorry, there is nothing we can do.” The San Diego Elder
Justice Task Force (EJTF) set out to answer the question of, “What COULD we do?”
The EJTF is an unprecedented collaboration by local and federal agencies lead by
the FBI, District Attorney’s Office, U.S. Department of Justice, and the local
San Diego U.S. Attorney’s Office. By investigating these cases locally, the EJTF
has revealed a road map for combating these scams highlighted recently by a
first of its kind Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO)
indictment by the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
