The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau is involved in providing financial protection against elder abuse; indeed, it is specifically tasked with that responsibility. The Bureau's Office of Older Americans is charged by the Dodd-Frank Act with examining certifications of financial advisors who serve elderly individuals and it plans to make recommendations to Congress on how to protect older consumers. Recently, the CFPB issued an information request regarding Senior Financial Exploitation.

In considering the challenges that the elderly must face in order to avoid financial abuse, the following outline of the CFPB's recent information request should be looked upon as a set of questions, the answers to which may provide new ways and means to protect them from the snares of financial predators.
