Mark was forced in retirement from his bank manager career, at 43, because of a stroke. Carol ended her restaurant management career, at 57, because of a needed liver transplant. After we retired we met at our senior living facility, Sun Grove Resort Village (SGRV). We saw the abuse and corruption there and we fought for the rights of our fellow senior residents. Our fight against elder abuse and senior financial exploitation has mushroomed into our being Elder Justice Advocates. The US Senate – Special Committee on Aging had us post our story about the SGRV elder abuse story and about the SGRV 66 elder abuse cases, 36 seniors have died with no justice. SGRV’s problems started with being involved in a Ponzi scheme and the 20 out-of-state owners who lost $4.5 million on their SGRV investment.
We reported the SGRV Elder Abuse and Financial Exploitation Crimes to the Peoria Police and the Arizona Attorney General. However, the Arizona Law Enforcement failed to interview the SGRV abused victims and failed to discover that the manager of SGRV, Scott Green, was a confessed 2005 Medicare Fraud Felon that made his living scamming the elderly and government. Scott Green was terminated on 08/28/12 but the SGRV crimes of false advertising, baseless lawsuits, and imposter nurse continues today. We presented our documentation to the California Court concerning the mastermind of the Oakdale Heights/AREI Ponzi scheme, James Koenig. That Ponzi scheme defrauded 2,000 investors of $250 million and hurt over 2,500 seniors that were living in the 23 senior living centers destroyed in the Ponzi scheme. Based upon our evidence the judge recently sentenced James Koenig to 43 years in jail. The California judge said this was more than the money but it was elder abuse.
We speak from experience after being abused and seeing many seniors abused and financially exploited. We teach classes and write articles as THE REAL FACES OF ELDER ABUSE. Our emphasis is on how to avoid being a victim of elder abuse and fraud. Elder Abuse and Senior Fraud has become epidemic and the CRIME OF THE 21ST CENTURY with a senior being abused in the US every five seconds. We teach that the key to stopping elder abuse is to prevent it before it happens with knowledge. We write a daily Facebook “Mark Fairall” sharing elder abuse stories, new senior protection law ideas, and tips on senior scams. Finally, we present new senior protection law ideas to our state and federal lawmakers.
Mark has been recognized in 2013 by COVINGTON’S WHO’S WHO for his civic volunteer activities. Carol was the runner-up for ARIZONA AARP’S 2013 Andrus Community Service Award. Carol recently received and letters from President Obama and the US Department of Health and Human Services thanking her for her volunteer work and wishing her better health.
