It appears someone is trying to open bank accounts in my name.
Two weeks ago, someone tried opening an account in my name at my parents address, but it was unsuccessful and the bank flagged it. We originally thought it was using my dads details as we have the same name.
But on Friday, another an account at another bank was successfully opened at my current address, and I received the bank details, debit card log in details. Reported it to the bank who are going to close it.
I’ve reported it to Actionfraud and signed up to Clearscore, Noddle and Experian to keep an eye on any new accounts, and one of the banks registered me with CIFAs which supposedly will make it harder to open an account.
I did have builders in recently which was a bit of a worry, but one of the banks said that nowadays you don’t actually need photo ID to open accounts. Plus it would be too obvious for builders to do it so soon.
But does anyone have any other recommendations or experiences?
