Protect your information from scammers

To the editor:

As I, Roger, see it, elderly people get scammed and they lose their life savings. This happens daily by crooks who figure out ways to get credit card numbers, debit card numbers, checking account information and Social Security numbers from innocent people.

I know of three people myself who have been scammed. One was scammed for $2,000, another for $1,000 and yet another for $10,000.

So, ALWAYS protect your personal information and do NOT give out your financial information over the phone.
