How to stop unwanted junk mail and guard against mail fraud

Dear Savvy Senior, 

My elderly father gets over 100 pieces of junk mail every week, and I just discovered that he’s given away nearly $5,000 over the past few months to many of the solicitors that mail him this junk. Can you offer any tips on how can I stop this?
