Seniors, and all others, should be careful with their personal information. Identity thieves can get your personal information by stealing wallets or purses, and your mail (bank statements, credit card statements, etc.). They will also steal the personal information you provide to an unsecured website on the Internet. They could steal information from inside your house or by going through your trash. So be careful and watch out for the other guy.
