Janesville seniors learn to protect their identity

Janesville seniors appear eager to learn how to prevent identity theft. Shawn Diaz, with the Department of Trade, Ag, and Consumer Protection Wednesday urged a group gathered at the senior center to be very selective when sharing personal information. Diaz says never provide information to a source you didn't initiate contact, or have verified the legitimacy of the website or phone number. The 30-or so seniors gathered felt they learned a lot. Key points of interest to them included strengthening passwords, checking their credit report annually, and properly protecting documents.
