  • Identity theft is an increasingly common crime. The term 'identity theft' refers to criminals obtaining information about you or your customers that can then be used to make purchases or enter into contracts in your name or in your customers' names. Identity theft can result in direct financial loss, damage to credit ratings, difficulty getting loans and credit cards, and months of reorganising financial accounts.

    Identity theft isn't only carried out through computers and the Internet, other methods include retrieving unshredded documents from rubbish bins or bags and criminals contacting you directly and pretending to be from a legitimate organisation in order to obtain personal data.
