I have been a victim of fraud recently. I have informed the creditors but can you put additional security checks in place to make it harder so that it does not happen again?

You can place a 'Protective Registration' warning on your credit file. This will tell lenders that you think your personal information is at risk of being used fraudulently. You can find out more about CIFAS and the services they offer at www.cifas.org.uk.
