Seniors Against Investment Fraud (SAIF)/Protect Yourself from Fraud alerts and educates Californians over the age of 50 about financial and investment fraud, common scams, and unscrupulous sales practices that specifically target seniors. SAIF exists because seniors are prime targets for financial fraud and scams. The goal of the SAIF program is to empower seniors to make informed decisions about investments and finances.
SAIF empowers seniors by providing valuable information and resources to make informed financial and investment decisions. The SAIF message is disseminated through seminars and presentations at senior centers and other locations where seniors gather.
SAIF also empowers seniors to make more informed decisions about finances and investments with its booklet, “Protect Yourself From Fraud”. The pdf download can be found here at https://dbo.ca.gov/wp-content/uploads/sites/296/2019/07/Protect_Yourself_From_Fraud-English.pdf. The booklet contains important information about making financial and investment decisions that can help seniors save money and avoid falling victim to financial fraud and scams. The booklet also contains a tear-out page with questions to ask a financial services professional, the “Check Before You Invest” form, along with a detailed resource guide.
