Younger Americans are more likely to become victims of a scam than senior citizens, according to the Better Business Bureau.
The BBB's scam tracker said 89 percent of seniors age 65 and older recognized a scam in time, and only 11 percent reported losing money. But millennials from ages 18 to 24 were more than three times as likely to miss a scam and lose money.
The BBB said seniors are less impulsive buyers and are less likely to make purchases online.
