Believe it or not, the handĀ­iĀ­capped comĀ­muĀ­niĀ­ty is a tarĀ­get rich popĀ­uĀ­laĀ­tion for scamĀ­mers. One of the most comĀ­mon scams against the handĀ­iĀ­capped is the imposĀ­tor scam. This is when someĀ­one posĀ­es as a trustĀ­ed indiĀ­vidĀ­ual, such as a govĀ­ernĀ­ment offiĀ­cial, and tells the vicĀ­tim that they owe monĀ­ey or have won a prize. The scamĀ­mer then presĀ­sures the vicĀ­tim into proĀ­vidĀ­ing perĀ­sonĀ­al inforĀ­maĀ­tion or makĀ­ing a payĀ­ment, often through preĀ­paid debĀ­it cards or wire transĀ­fers. This type of scam is parĀ­ticĀ­uĀ­larĀ­ly insidĀ­iĀ­ous because it often preys on the vicĀ­timā€™s fears and anxĀ­iĀ­eties, and can result in the loss of sigĀ­nifĀ­iĀ­cant sums of monĀ­ey.

AnothĀ­er type of scam that tarĀ­gets the handĀ­iĀ­capped is the teleĀ­marĀ­ketĀ­ing scam. This is when a scamĀ­mer calls the vicĀ­tim and tries to sell them prodĀ­ucts or serĀ­vices, such as a fake medĀ­ical device or a home secuĀ­riĀ­ty sysĀ­tem, that they do not need or that do not exist. The scamĀ­mer often uses high-presĀ­sure tacĀ­tics to conĀ­vince the vicĀ­tim to make a payĀ­ment, and the vicĀ­tim may not realĀ­ize that they have been scammed until it is too late.
