Stuart believes NotifID to be an exciting challenge which will address the very serious and ever evolving problem of Cyber Crime and Identity Theft.
Identity theft happens when fraudsters access enough information about someone’s identity (such as their name, date of birth, current or previous addresses) to commit identity fraud. Identity theft can take place whether the fraud victim is alive or deceased.
Victims of identity theft can suffer from a direct impact on their personal finances and it could also make it difficult to obtain other forms of credit such as loans, credit cards or a mortgage.
Identity fraud can be described as the use of that stolen identity in criminal activity to obtain goods or services by deception. Fraudsters can use identities to:
With Identity Fraud costing more than £5.4 billion per year in the UK alone (Equifax), don't you think it's time something was done about it?
Mr G, a software engineer from Peterborough, received a welcome letter from EE Mobile thanking him for his new Mobile Phone contract of which he knew nothing about. This was soon followed up with additional purchases subjecting him to an uncomfortable and stressful period in trying to unravel and resolve his predicament. Below are some of the questions posed to him by NotifID in its fight against cyber criminals.
In total - £2800.
My Identity was stolen and misused to obtain goods and services. The fraudsters managed to successfully get through the following transactions using my Identity
- Sign off and buy 2 I-Phones on a Pay-Monthly contract arrangement through EE
- Obtain Mobile Insurance for both the phones with Tesco Mobile Insurance
- Obtain a store card with £1000 limit and used it in store to make purchase at Debenhams for about £500
- Obtain personal finance with Hitachi Finance for £1000
I got a welcome letter from EE Mobile regarding the new Mobile Phone contract for 24 months which was soon followed with the sign up for mobile insurance. This was followed by a bill for £109 from EE the week after. This was when I found that my Id was stolen.
No direct costs were involved as the mobile service providers and Hitachi cancelled the contracts. But I did incur some cost in experian subscriptions (paying £15 per month) for more than a year to keep guard on my accounts.
About 3-4 months for all entries to be removed from my credit file and about 6 months for my credit score to return back to the old levels.
Yes, very much. It was too difficult talking to different credit scoring agencies and also the retailers trying to get things moving and getting the credit file cleaned up again.
No, but I had to identify with additional evidence to prove I am the genuine owner of the identity and my Id has been stolen. I had to go through additional verification security questions related to my identity and set up a membership account with experian.
It was a case of constantly phoning the companies and their fraud departments to follow up the case. Though the retailers have taken Identity Theft seriously, there is a small disjoint between the customer services and the fraud department in most cases and that made it a bit more difficult everytime I call them.
Yes, I would. In fact, experian wanted me to register for alerts with them and other credit reporting agencies, but I am not sure how simple their process is.
We'd be delighted to hear from you! Please send us a message.
