for Older Citizens
B SAFE Program
The Attorney General’s office is proud to participate in B SAFE, a statewide program that addresses financial exploitation against older citizens. This program works with law enforcement officials, members of Illinois TRIAD and the banking community to keep seniors safe from financial fraud.
The goal of B SAFE is to encourage and help banks to train their personnel to identify, report and stop situations involving senior exploitation. The challenge for banks’ front-line personnel is to recognize suspicious situations and provide the assistance necessary to defuse them. B SAFE trains bank employees to do just that. By knowing what to look for and taking simple, common sense precautions, bank employees are helping to stop criminals and protect older citizens throughout Illinois.
