Identity fraud, or identity theft, could happen to any of us. That’s why keeping a close eye on our personal credit information is so important.

If you think you have become a victim of identity fraud, notify Action Fraud, contact your bank and check your credit report. Your credit report can highlight irregularities such as suspect applications for credit and rises in card balances.

Experian’s Victims of Fraud service is also available free to fraud victims, and has a dedicated team to give expert advice and support tailored to particular circumstances.
