The unseen price of a scam: the impact of scams and fraud on isolated older people

Our report highlights how scams and fraud significantly impact people aged 75 and over who are experiencing loneliness.

The study, the largest of its kind ever conducted with this age group, found:

  • Scams and fraud reduces wellbeing and increases isolation.
  • That there are gaps in some security behaviours of older people that help to protect them from being scammed.
  • The fear of scams and fraud means older people are less likely to engage with common technologies that could improve their lives, such as access to the internet, email and online banking.
