Oregon has released the first-ever study on the financial exploitation of adults with disabilities and the elderly.
 

It may be a crime that happens over a long period or a one time event. And it may take years for the victim to discover it, if they ever do. The study found the majority of financial abuse is perpetrated by family, friends and non-relative caregivers. Researcher Rebecca Fetters says they’re not only stealing money.
