    This is drivel and is questionable. The article headlines “Share scam fraudsters target cash of elderly investors. Central Bank warning to elderly”. Now I do not see any specific warning to the 'elderly' on the Central Bank website. I've just given the CB a call on this and while they did issue a warning recently on an unauthorized investment firm they do not appear to have issued any specific advice addressed to 'elderly investors'. So I've just been told. Neither as far as I can see has the Irish Stock Exchange. Now I know the Sindo needs to sell copy but it is a bit offensive for 'elderly persons' to be headlined as a specific risk category for fraudsters in what is in effect an opinion piece.
