Free physiotherapy, consumer pension, free travel, high rebate, a project called "Mom Le" illegally absorbed public deposits, deceived many elderly people in Pinggu, Beijing; after a 60-year-old elderly in Kunming, Yunnan joined the "stock market" , Encouraged by group friends to invest in bitcoin, fired and speculated to save over 600,000 yuan in life savings. Last week, news about old people being deceived for financial management was reproduced everywhere.
Today, older people are becoming the focus of scammers' traps. Except for the scammer's scamming skill, the reason that cannot be ignored is that no matter the body is “old and strong” or the spirit is “willing to go for thousands of miles”, the old man cannot get rid of the laws of nature, and his action and judgment are no longer brave. In particular, the elderly group has a certain degree of disconnection from the whole society, insufficient access to new knowledge and information, and insufficient knowledge of new forms of fraud.
Therefore, rather than the scammers seizing the motive of the elderly to pursue small and cheap, it is better to say that the inability to discern various deceptions is the biggest weakness of the elderly. How can I help the old man hold his purse tightly? Increasing the intensity of cracking down on such behaviors and increasing the cost of breaking the law against the criminals who defraud the elderly can play a certain deterrent role, but it is not a cure.
What is the "seven inch" for the elderly scam? Looking through many similar cases, it is not difficult to find that scammers often place their main positions in neighborhoods, streets, supermarkets and other places where elderly people gather, put on props, pull up banners, distribute leaflets, and solicit a grandma . These places are often staffed by community street staff, police patrol from time to time, and property security on duty. All parties should be mobilized to early detect, report to the police early, and dispose of similar suspected promotional activities to suppress their activity space from the source. Of course, as more and more netizens are aging, the prevention and crackdown on online fraud must also be planned in advance. In addition, as far as possible, helping the old people to acquire new knowledge and new skills, no longer disconnected from the society, and also has the effect of preventing fraud.
Helping the elderly to hold their money bags is helping them to hold their happy old age.
