Taking Action: A Training for Advocates Assisting Victims of Financial Fraud will expand upon the research and process found in the Taking Action: An Advocate’s Guide to Assisting Victims of Financial Fraud.  This training will provide advocates, law enforcement personnel, and attorneys with background information on financial fraud, as well as a clear understanding of the role advocates in assisting victims of fraud.  Additionally, using information gathered from across the US, the training will provide an overview of how victims can report and recover from the fraud, and how advocates can assist in expanding recovery options for victims.

At the end of this training, you will:
  • Have a background and understanding of how financial fraud is perpetrated.
  • Understand your role as an advocate working with financial fraud victims.
  • Have an appreciation of the trauma experienced by victims of financial fraud.
  • Know what steps are necessary to assist victims of financial fraud.
