FEAT Financial Exploitation Awareness Training

Financial Exploitation Awareness Training (FEAT)

Elder Financial Exploitation comes in many forms, ranging from employees, caregivers and even family members who take money and property from the elderly without permission, to con artists who wheedle and trick financial information, checks and cold cash from trusting seniors. This crime has recently been named "The crime of the twenty-first century." It is the least understood and the effects can be devastating.

Bank employees who deal directly with seniors in banks are uniquely positioned to detect and prevent financial abuse of this kind. The North Dakota Bankers Association, in partnership with Guardian and Protective Service, Inc. and in cooperation with the North Dakota Office of the Attorney General, has developed training to educate front line bank employees on what is elderly financial exploitation, how to spot possible cases, how banks can help and who to report to if warranted.

These training manuals, which include a training DVD and reporting materials, are available upon request at the North Dakota Bankers Association.

Please contact NDBA at, for more information on the training and how to set up an on-site training session at your bank.
