Home Forums RQ Board Announcements STOLEN POST Re: Identity theft …


All – Just to advise that today I received a PIN number for a card I don't have. It seems somebody has applied for an Amex with all of my details which was approved and sent out. They had my mothers maiden name incorrect but it was approved anyway – even though I have another card with them … it has been cancelled now without any spending being made but it seems that the stolen post issue is a very real issue and I would recommend everybody checks their credit files for activity that is not theirs.

The reference agencies have to provide a £2 report to you (for Experian the link is here http://www.experian.co.uk/consumer/statutory-report.html?sc=701789 and they are normally a little hard to find the link to as they want to sell you their expensive alternatives).
