Fraud enabled by identity theft costs the UK £billions each year, and it’s on the increase, according to UK fraud prevention service CIFAS, which works with businesses in a variety of different sectors. There were 81,626 cases of identity fraud reported to CIFAS between January and September 2011, an increase of 2.2% on the same period in the previous year. Identity fraud represents just under half of all fraud reported to CIFAS. FPB membership covers prosecution cost.
