Question 6 of 6 about Reporting fraud
What is Cifas Protective Registration and how could it help me?
Cifas Protective Registration offers protection against identity theft for those who might be at risk.
You’re considered to be at risk if:
- Your personal documents have recently been lost or stolen
- You’re the customer of an organisation that has recently lost or leaked data
- You’ve been advised by the police that you’re at risk of identity theft
To help protect you, Cifas Protective Registration will place a warning flag against your name that will let other organisations know to pay close attention if your details are used to purchase products or services.
