How can I protect my ID following purse theft?

 

Dear James,

 

I have had my purse stolen with all my bank and store cards and several forms of ID (photographic and non-photographic) which have my address and date of birth. How can I best protect my identity?.

 

 

Anne, Nottingham

 

Dear Anne,

Sorry to hear about this – you must be quite worried. Adding some security features to your credit report would be a sensible move and should give you some peace of mind. The easiest way to do this with all three credit reference agencies is by arranging for a CIFAS Protective Registration. For a one-off fee of £20, a marker will be added to your credit reports at all three credit reference agencies to warn lenders to take extra care when assessing an application in your name. If you obtain your Experian credit report you can also take additional measures if you wish, such as adding a note to your report including a password. You can get expert advice on this from our Customer Support Centre and, if you find anything on your report to indicate that fraud has already taken place, our Victims of Fraud team will be on hand to help you set the record straight.
