well personally i don't do any banking or such online myself but when it comes to my old cell phoes i don't trade em i'll take it apart and destroy the innards. as for a computer sell it without your old hard drive in it. and if you can't use that drive take it apart and destroy it too.

Old hard drives have super-strong rare-earth (Neodymium, not really "rare" just a name) magnets inside. Even a laptop drive contains a surprisingly-strong magnet or two. Take one apart and have fun but watch out - I've gotten bloody fingers from having a couple of those suckers snap together when handling 'em!
