Monitor your Credit Report and benefit from FREE Identity Theft Assistance
Identity Theft is one of the fastest growing crimes in the UK, with almost 90,000 people falling victim each year. One of the best ways to keep ahead of fraudsters is to monitor your Multi Agency Credit Reports for suspicious activity. If you are unlucky enough to fall victim while subscribing, we can help you to restore your identity quickly.
Check for CIFAS Fraud Warnings
Every time a suspected identity theft (whether successful or not) is found either by an individual consumer or by a CIFAS member, a Fraud Alert is reported to the Credit Reference Agencies to ensure that any credit applications made in the future are subject to additional checks.
Learn more about the Identity Theft attempt
Find out when the suspected fraud occurred, what the fraudster applied for in your name, what address was used, what sort of credit product was applied for, and from which lender.
Check the status of a Protective Registration
If you're unfortunate enough to be a victim of Identity Theft, one of the steps you can take is to register for Protective Registration at CIFAS, which forces all new credit applications to be subject to additional screening. Protective Registration is one of the many benefits of our FREE Identity Theft Assistance service.
High risk accounts given extra emphasis
Active accounts at an address other than your current one is often an indicator of Identity Theft. Similarly, if you are aware of the account, but it is open at an address you no longer have access to, you are exposed to an increased fraud risk and should update the lender as soon as possible.
