A relatively clever identity fraud was found today. Someone re-registered someone else's electoral roll entry from Yardley to Sparkbrook. Then they applied for 3 credit cards. As far as I can tell no money was charged to the cards and the police have been involved.
The response of the police appears to be that they are not sure what offence has been created. I would think myself that it is a form of fraud in that credit has been obtained. However, it would be interesting if there is a loophole here that means that unless someone actually spends money on the cards there is no offence.
A good candidate for a written parliamentary question.
