Freedom Reputation Job Rights
Senior Citizens Atlanta GA

Identity theft is a horrible situation to go through, but for many of the nation’s elderly population, it can be almost impossible to endure. Here are some ways thieves take advantage of the elderly, and tips on how you can protect yourself or your aging loved ones.

Identifying ID Theft

Senior citizens are a major target for ID thieves and lose $3 billion a year in financial scams. The most common types of fraud among seniors are fake sweepstakes, fraudulent business or investment opportunities or scams where thieves pose as family or friends in emails.

A Vulnerable Population

There are a few reasons why seniors are more susceptible to ID theft and scams. Seniors tend to have a larger amount of cash in savings, making them ideal targets. They also tend to visit doctor’s offices more often and they use government services like Social Security, both of which are victims of frequent hacking. Some seniors could be suffering from conditions like Alzheimer’s that leave them with less ability to make sound decisions.

Be on the Lookout for These Scams

Here are the most prevalent senior theft scams:

  • Repairman scams – fake repairmen will appear at the door of a senior, telling them they need to have something repaired quickly in their home, and if they fail to do so, their safety is at risk. These thieves are just looking for a quick way in to steal credit cards, checkbooks or other personal information. Or the senior will receive a call from someone claiming that software needs to be replaced on their computer and demand a credit card number to clear the victim’s computer of viruses.
  • Medicare fraud – Fake Medicare representatives will call and request personal information to complete a medical record.
  • IRS scams – These calls usually start around tax season and threaten the senior with arrest or foreclosure for unpaid back taxes and will demand immediate payment over the phone.

These are only some of the ways that seniors are taken advantage of by heartless criminals. If you believe you or a loved one are a victim of identity theft, give Jeff Manciagli a call at (404) 642-9080 or visit us here to schedule a free initial consultation.

    Mr. Manciagli has done so much in so little time. In less than one month he was able to contact the courts and got me early termination for my supervised release. I am so grateful, he works fast and always stayed in contact with me. I highly recommend my attorney to everyone I am very satisfied with Mr. Manciagli. Very grateful to him for all he has done since the day I met him. He's just the best.


    Mr. Manciagli has lived and traveled all over the world, including Latin America, and his legal work has taken him to Colombia, Mexico, Guatemala, Panama, and Jamaica. It was important for me, as a foreigner in the U.S., to have an attorney who understood me from a cultural level and who I could speak to in Spanish. If you or a loved one needs a criminal defense attorney, Jeff Manciagli is the attorney you should call.


    Jeff was recommended by a friend. I am very pleased with the way my case was handled & the outcome was very satisfactory. I would recommend him.


    Entered into a drug case (1/2 oz of molly & 1g. of marijuana)..... I have 3+ felonies....Jeff got me 6 months house arrest & probation.....definite prison time without him.......reasonable priced....Thanks Jeff.


    My lawyer in FL recommended Jeff when I got arrested in GA and didn't know what to do. I got pulled over in a cash-cow speed trap town 20 miles above the state line and they called a K-9 unit and got probable cause to search my car. I was livid and felt so violated. Luckily I hired the best of the best. Jeff always called/emailed me back promptly when I had questions about my case, and Always spoke to me as an equal. He took care of everything and when it came time to go to court was honest and logical in discussing what was best and how my plea would affect my future. Under his council I felt calm and in control. I was facing 3 misdemeanor charges and got them all dropped on the condition that I do a small amount of community service, pay a fine, and don't get in any more trouble for a few months. I didn't even get points on my license for the original speeding ticket. At the end of the day, money is replaceable- my time and freedom are not. If I or anyone I know ever has trouble in GA again, I will be calling Jeff.
