I’m worried about identity fraud, what safeguards do you use?

We know an awful lot about identity fraud. When the National Consumer Council sought an industry response to the growing problem of identity theft, we responded by launching the National Identity Fraud Assistance Centre, which we fund and operate.

We keep abreast of all identity fraud scams, keep track of identity fraud hotspots, and monitor data breaches. We publish all known scams in our industry acclaimed handbook ‘Identity Theft Prevention and Victim Assistance’, which is regularly updated on the website. The handbook has been licensed by other identity fraud protection service companies and had been described by a respected professional institute as ‘leaving no stone unturned’.

Identity fraud hotspots are published by us in the Check Your Postcode section on

We use all of this knowledge to monitor all post received for signs of identity fraud and scams. If we see a scam, we’ll warn you right away, and better than that, we’ll give you expert advice on what to do to next.

You can obtain a free assessment of what to do to improve your defences against identity fraud by using our Identity Theft Expert System.

Armed with all these resources, we believe that we you should have real peace of mind when using ScanMyPost to handle your mail - no one else in the UK is as close to the issue of identity fraud as we are.
