Confidential Paper Shredding for Manchester and Cheshire
Statistics for identity theft make for unpleasant reading. The number of cases across the UK shot up by 57% in 2015 and by a massive 83% in Manchester, 5% more than in London.
Research also shows that people living in affluent suburbs around the UK’s major cities are more likely to be targeted, with Altrincham in Cheshire named as the ‘UK’s provincial identity fraud capital’ by Experian in 2013.
It’s Never Been More Important to
Protect Your Personal Data
It isn't just office waste management that's important in the fight against fraud, with criminals targeting homes more than ever. It’s all too easy (and tempting) to throw confidential documents in the bin when they’re no longer needed, especially in the comfort and security of your own home.
Items like bank statements, passports, mobile phone bills and even supplier invoices can prove hugely valuable to fraudsters. Identity thieves can use this personal and financial information to piece together a profile for an individual or business.
This profile can then be used to access online and telephone banking accounts, create fraudulent online shopping accounts, and take out credit cards, loans and even mortgages in your personal or company name.
If your personal information is used in the way described, the damage to your credit ratings could take up to two years to put right.
