Mr. Schiff: The FBI is concerned about fraud on the elderly increasing…

Mr. Wolverton: "The reason for that is the baby boomer population, those born between 1946 and 1964, are moving into the retirement age."

Mr. Schiff: Special Agent Randy Wolverton of the FBI's Criminal Investigative Division…

Mr. Wolverton: "That's creating more opportunities for fraudsters to target these individuals for their financial schemes."

Mr. Schiff: Wolverton says the boomers have money to spend…

Mr. Wolverton: "They're more likely to have savings accounts and retirement accounts; equity in their homes; and excellent credit ratings."

Mr. Schiff: Wolverton says frauds and scams come in all kinds of designs…

Mr. Wolverton: "Foreign lottery and sweepstakes fraud, advance fee and credit card fraud, investment fraud schemes, charity type schemes."

Mr Schiff: Basically, don't pay money to get money. I'm Neal Schiff of the Bureau and that's what's happening at the "FBI, This Week."
