Britons urged to act on identity fraud
"British businesses and consumers are not doing enough to stop identity fraud, it is claimed today.
"Only 7% of people are confident that the companies they deal with treat their data responsibly, a survey marking the start of National Identity Fraud Prevention Week found.
"More than nine out of 10 people in the UK (94%) think they are at risk from identity fraud but only 44% regularly check bills and financial statements against receipts and 55% check before responding to emails and calls.
"Only 56% of British organisations have a comprehensive policy on protecting people's identities. According to CIFAS, the UK's Fraud Prevention Service, in the first three quarters of this year levels of identity fraud were up almost 10% on the same period last year, with 79,871 cases."
