With a few personal details, a criminal can open new bank accounts, get new credit cards, claim benefits and apply for official documents like a driving licence – all in your name, and all traceable to YOU.
Identity theft is the UK’s fastest-growing method used to carry out criminal activity. It involves unauthorised use of your name and personal details to either steal from you, or commit a crime in your name.
Your identity is a valuable commodity. You need it to function in everyday life. You need evidence of who you are to open bank accounts, obtain credit cards, finance, loans and mortgages, to obtain goods or services, or to claim benefits. But you may not be the only person using your own personal details, and your identity can be stolen and used by fraudsters who can impersonate you and take out various forms of credit or services, using your name. They can even take over your existing bank accounts by pretending to be you.
All the fraudster needs is a few of your details. A document bearing your name and/or your address makes it even easier for them to start defrauding you. Identity Theft can be a harrowing experience for the victim. It can be months before the fraudster’s actions are discovered, and in some cases it can take just as long to sort out the mess left behind.
We hold the BS EN 15713:2009 standard for the secure destruction of confidential material. We make sure that we meet the conditions to be adhered to by companies who destroy confidential information on behalf of their customers with the security of this information being integral to this service.
