Attorney General Curtis Hill is urging Congress to pass legislation known as Edith’s Bill, designed to assist seniors victimized by fraud, as part of the nation’s efforts to provide relief to those most impacted by COVID-19.
This bipartisan legislation would amend the Victims of Crime Act of 1984 to include victims of senior fraud as eligible for reimbursement through the Crime Victims Fund in states that provide compensation to victims. Indiana is one of those states.
In a statement Attorney General Hill said, “We must work together across local, state and federal jurisdictions to do everything possible to protect seniors from criminal predators. Further, we must also do our best to make seniors whole when they do fall victim to these unsavory schemes.”
Attorney General Hill is one of 44 attorneys general to sign a letter to congressional leaders advocating for the legislation.
