With all the scams going on today I try to take thoughtful care with everything I do.
This is something that happened to my parents neighbor and it is just something I never thought about.
My parents live in a community of condos. Very nice neighborhood with mostly seniors.
The neighbors house was broken into and because it is such a tight community, someone saw it and called the police.
The police where able to track them because luckily they had a K9 officer there.
These two thieves had prescription bottles on them that belonged to this woman.
Pain meds and anxiety meds.
They got them from the trash, which they regularly dig thru at night which had her name and address right there along with what the meds were.
The police suggested to soak the labels off your med bottles before throwing them away.
Luckily this woman was not home because these two were IV drug users looking for drugs, money and something they could sell.
I never thought of what a target I could become just by throwing my empty bottles away.
You can bet I will be soaking the labels off from now on!
I wanted to share this with everyone just in case like me, you had not heard of this.
Think maybe I will share this I with my PM doctor as well.
