- Protect your personal data, particularly your personal identity code and online banking codes. The authorities or banks will never ask you to provide your password or username by e-mail or text message, and the same goes for trustworthy online services and social media platforms.
- Adopt a mindset of healthy scepticism regarding offers you see online or receive by phone. If something sounds too good to be true, it probably isn’t true.
- If you suspect a crime, contact the authorities. The faster the response to identity fraud is, the smaller the scope of the fraud is likely to be.
