Protecting Yourself Against Identity Theft & Fraud

I have added a link to a very useful web site guide.

The guide covers key topics such as:

  • Information on the most common ways people’s identities and personal information are targeted and stolen online, including key warning signs that you might be a victim of fraud (e.g. loss of services on your utilities or unexplained payments coming out of your account).
  • Eye-opening stats about identity fraud: Did you know that in 2018 alone there have been 82,608 cases of fraud as a result of card details being cloned? That 95% of fraudsters directly pretend to be their victims? and that under-21s and over-60s are those most commonly targeted age groups for online fraud?
  • How to prevent identity theft: The top advice here includes safeguarding techniques like regularly changing your password, using two-factor authentication and avoiding public wi-fi among other useful resources.
  • The guide also looks at the impact of identity theft on mental health. Some startling figures reveal 60% of people feel extreme anxiety after being a victim, while 42% feared for the safety of their family members.
