The problem is that the labels are misleading and they tend to mask the real crime problem as it affects older adults. It would be unfair to say that the labels are misleading without providing further support for why the crime problem as it affects elderly persons is an important area of study. Notwithstanding the facts that older adults experience the effects of victimization differently and that up to one million elderly persons are abused each year, when dollar figures are considered, estimates suggest that consumer frauds targeting the elderly cost nearly $40 billion each year (Barker, 1993).

Basically, those professionals who, in theory, must report suspected elder abuse cases vary by state and include health care professionals, human service professionals, clergy, law enforcement professionals, financial professionals, and long-term care professionals. Sixteen states mandate that any person who suspects abuse must report it, while Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, New York, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin have no forms of mandatory reporting (Stiegel, 1995). According to Zborowsky, (1985) the aim of the mandatory reporting laws was “to assure the well-being of older people and at the same time protect their civil rights” (p.

Building on this idea, Bachman, Dillaway, and Lachs (1998) note that elderly persons are just as likely to be murdered in their home by strangers as they are by known offenders. They write, “while most think of the home as a refuge from the evils of the outside world, it does not seem to serve that purpose for the elderly” (p. 197). Also recall the fact that elderly persons are more likely to be targets of telemarketing fraud, fraudulent charities, and other scams. ” Another point that would help debunk myths 6, 7, and 8 (each dealing with why the offenses occur) is that there is no one reason that suitably explains why all of the abusive acts occur.
