Barclays uses a singing/dancing root veg routine to make us more aware of how the fun things we do online are used to collect incredible amounts of information on each of us as individuals, which can in turn lead to very serious problems like identity theft and fraud. Fraudsters can use your identity details to: Open bank accounts/ Obtain credit cards, loans and state benefits/ Order goods in your name/ Take over your existing accounts/ Take out mobile phone contracts/Obtain genuine documents such as passports and driving licences in your name. "Identity fraud is the key to unlocking your valuables," says City of London Police Commander Chris Greany. "Things like weak passwords or not updating your software are the same as leaving a window or door unlocked." Do you think the ad's helpful, or are you already aware of the issue? Would you rather see practical information on what to do if you do become a victim of this growing crime area?
