Identity theft and fraud

What is identity theft and fraud?

Identity fraud is where someone impersonates you without your knowledge or consent, or uses your personal information to obtain money, goods or services. More information on the types and incidences of identity fraud is available from the FCA website (opens in a new window), which contains tips on how to protect yourself, what to do if it happens to you and contact details of organisations that can help.

How does identity theft and fraud occur?

It can occur when someone fraudulently represents a legitimate company - either online or by telephone - and tricks you into divulging personal information. A common method is phishing, the act of sending an e-mail that fraudulently represents a legitimate company and lures you into revealing personal and financial information that could then be used for identity theft. In addition, these fraudulent e-mails may contain trojans or viruses. A trojan is a computer programme that may seem innocent but has been designed to damage your computer or send confidential information over the internet to another computer. A virus is a computer programme that runs on your computer without your knowledge. If you are in any doubt about whether an e-mail is genuine do not open it or click on any links it contains.

How can I spot a scam or phishing e-mail?

Initially phishing e-mails look genuinely like those from financial services companies. They may have an official looking logo and information taken from legitimate websites. However, there are things you should look out for.

What should I do if I have received a suspicious e-mail?
