Eddy & Schein Celebrates 15 Years of Service!

{4:35 minutes to read} The first seed of Eddy & Schein, Inc. was planted in 1990 when Rebecca was hired by a friend to pay bills while she and her husband were out of the country for six months. She has been Rebecca’s client ever since. Meanwhile, Gideon was caring for his ailing mother, and subsequently her best friend, which was the impetus that led him to take on his first paying client.

The Ugly Truth About Elder Financial Abuse & Fraud

Elder financial abuse and fraud is one of the largest growing changes in the care of seniors.

There are eight major sources of fraud: family members (including the result of sibling rivalry); unscrupulous businesses; caregivers; trusted professionals; transients; neighbors; “friends”; and what are called “sweetheart scammers."

“Sweetheart Scammers,” both domestic and foreign, ask seniors for money for a sick relative or an emotionally-compelling emergency that tugs at the heartstrings.
