JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (5/2/08)--Missouri credit unions are taking a role in the fight to stop financial abuse of the elderly by participating in a video. As a funding sponsor of the new Missourians Stopping Adult Financial Exploitation (MOSAFE) consumer video, representatives of the Missouri Credit Union Association (MCUA) participated in the MOSAFE media conference to introduce the new MOSAFE consumer video on April 23 (CourierNetApril 30). “Credit unions have been involved in this project from the very start through funding and assisting MOSAFE with the video’s content,” said Peggy Nalls, MCUA senior vice president, public/legislative affairs. “This is an important tool for Missouri seniors and the people who care for them in helping to protect their assets.” The video is narrated by Doris Roberts, better know as Raymond’s mother on the television show, “Everybody Loves Raymond.” Missouri credit unions also helped MOSAFE produce a video in 2005 that trained employees of financial institutions to help them recognize and report elder abuse.
