The credit checking company Experian says that it is not surprising that identity fraud happens more frequently in London than in any other part of the UK. In East Ham, new research suggests there are seven times the number of attempts at identity theft in comparison to the national average.
It comes as no surprise that the capital remains a target for third-party fraudsters, particularly around densely populated inner-city boroughs where identities are easier to steal.
Clearly, identity theft is not just confined to inner-city areas but is a UK-wide problem and a symptom of tougher economic times, highlighting the need for people everywhere to be increasingly vigilant.
