Identity Thieves Target Elderly

Marjorie Stevens Upset with Thieves
Identity Theft seems like a problem of the computer age but more and more non-computer users seem to be targeted. The elderly in particular are increasingly reporting becoming victims of this new crime.

Marjorie Stevens of 10 Bettsworth Cresent has lived her whole life on the island and speaks from experience having been the victim of an attack just last week.

"I was shopping and had not so much as got out of the car and set foot in the grocery store that I forgot what I had come to shopping for. I was just standing there talking to that handsome young man Cory who pushes the carts back in about the weather when they attacked, they must have seen me coming."
