Seminar helps seniors fight identity theft [PUEBLO, CO]

Identity theft is the fastest growing crime in the nation, and senior citizens are often a major target. On Wednesday, a seminar was held in Pueblo to help alert seniors how to protect their identities and life savings.

Janice Friddle, director of the AARP Elder Watch program, says thieves prey on the elderly because of their higher credit rating. "Certainly their credit ratings might be higher. They might have more credit accessible to them, and thieves love to get ahold of somebody that has a high dollar amount attached to their name," said Friddle.
