Action Fraud has just issued a Fraud Alert following reports that people have been making.
People have been receiving letters asking them to repay their loan - but the loan has actually been taken out by fraudsters who have stolen their identities. Action Fraud is urging people not to ignore letters for items or services they haven't taken out. Ignoring letters about goods or services you haven't requested could mean that you end up in debt, with bailiffs on your doorstep and with a poor credit rating.
