How can fraudsters steal my personal information?

Whether it’s by email, phone or social media, fraudsters will try and get hold of your information in a variety of different ways. 

Below we have listed the most common to help you spot any early warnings signs. 

You’ve been targeted - the symptoms

  • A lack of bills or other correspondence – this suggests your documents may have been intercepted and are now going to a different address
  • Receiving credit cards which you did not apply for
  • Denial of a credit card for no apparent reason
  • Receiving correspondence from debt collectors about things you have not bought
  • Unrecognisable entries on your credit history
  • Entries on your bank details for goods you did not purchase
  • You cannot log into a site using your normal password
