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.

Presented by,
Felix Salazar, San Diego County District Attorney
Scott Pirrello, Deputy District Attorney, Head of Elder Abuse Prosecutions, San Diego County District Attorney
Michael Rod, Supervisory Senior Resident Agent, North County FBI
