- Crimes against the elderly are increasing at a high pace. Some crimes are: trying to harass or knowingly take advantage of an elderly person to change their Will into another's name; stealing from them which includes money; jewelry, etc.; verbal or physical abuse; refusing to keep their hygiene up; denying proper medical care; leaving them for long periods of time when they are incapable of looking after themselves or denying them any visitors. It is not necessarily the caregiver that is at fault, but there are many scam artists that prey on the elderly especially if they own their own homes. Example: talking the elderly person into buying a 20 year warrantied roof on their home. Scamming money out of the elderly by 'fast talking' to confuse the elderly to donate money which is a setup scam and not an authorized charity.

If a crime is made to inflict physical or psychological harm to a person then it's called a crime against an individual, although an individual is a part of a society. For exa…mple: murder, rape, child abuse, harassment, hazing, robbery, kidnapping, etc. If a crime is made to inflict physical or psychological harm in such a way that more persons suffer at the same time and the society is effected as a whole then its called a crime against the society. For example: corruption, arms smuggling, trafficking of drugs, street crimes, hate crimes, etc. Those crimes have distressing effects on the society az a whole.
