Age Gap Relationships

Consenting adults come together for many reasons and don’t always think age is a factor but concerned children will always doubt the credibility of the other party.

Romance Scams are the most common and most costly of scams against the elderly. It is   natural to feel concerned when your elderly Father or Mother is in an online relationship or dating someone in real life with a significant age gap.

If you are struggling and feel your parent could be physically involved with someone that does not have good intentions and want to guard their financial protection, we suggest conducting a Background Investigation.

This service will include a Driver’s Check, Criminal Record Check, Employment, Social Media, Bankruptcy Inquiries, Asset Searches Lien Searches and Property Ownership.

Open communication with elderly parents is crucial to help them avoid falling victim to scams. Encourage them to share any concerns or suspicious activities with you without fear or embarrassment. Assure them that you’re there to support and protect them, and provide resources or assistance as needed. It’s important to create a safe and trusting environment where they feel comfortable seeking help when needed.
