John Amos
“America's Dad”

 

Each year, hundreds of thousands of adults over the age of 60 are abused, neglected, or financially exploited. This is referred to as  elder abuseIt is a distressing issue that strips seniors of dignity, security, and sometimes even their lives.

An estimated five million older Americans experience abuse, which can include but is not limited to the following:

Emotional Abuse, Physical Abuse, Neglect, Abandonment, and Financial Abuse

resulting in a minimum annual financial loss of $36.5 billion for victims.

Stopping elder abuse is a very challenging path and often requires lawyers to work with law enforcement. Additionally, because many victims develop positive feelings toward their captors or abusers over time, which can make reporting difficult, even moreso when the abuser is a family member.

Abuse can happen to anyone — no matter the person's age, sex, race, religion, or ethnic or cultural background.

Elder abuse will not stop on its own. Someone else needs to step in and help. Many older adults are too ashamed to report mistreatment. Or, they're afraid if they make a report it will get back to the abuser and make the situation worse.

Unfortunately, our family has recently been impacted by Elder Abuse. Given the need for privacy during this time, we are working with a legal firm and law enforcement during the course of this investigation.

We have created the GoFundMe campaign for two reasons

  1. To fund legal fees related to seeking justice as well as liberating John from legal loopholes allowing his abuser to control his decisions, business and finances

  2. To secure safety and stability for John, while he has had a successful career he is no longer in control of all his finances and it is possible that his accounts have been gutted and his future earnings re-directed

JOIN OUR GOFUNDME CAMPAIGN AND HELP US SEEK JUSTICE & CARE FOR JOHN AMOS WHO IS A VICTIM OF ELDER ABUSE.
