Identity fraud is a long existing and growing concern in the UK. Fraud due to stolen credit and debit cards has risen to its highest levels since its peak in 2006. Some £58.9million was lost in 2013, marking a 7 per cent increase on the previous year.
The total rises to £450.4million when crimes such as identity theft, cloned cards, computer viruses and internet scams are included – a 16 per cent increase on the previous year.
Identity theft specifically on bank cards, occurs when a criminal uses fraudulently obtained personal information to open or access card accounts in your name and without your knowledge.
Stolen identities can be used to open new bank accounts, apply for loans and credit cards.
Identity thieves steal or obtain key pieces of personal information and use them to impersonate you and to commit crimes using your name and identity profile.
In addition to your name and address, criminals look for and use utility bills, driving licences, credit card and banking details, including statements, to carry out their activities. These will often include applying for birth certificates and passports in your name...
