Fraudulent State Benefit Application
  1. Immediately inform the benefit officer you are applying to and report the matter to the local police.

  2. Obtain a copy of your credit file to see whether this has been affected by any fraudulent activity.

  3. Identify any applications or organisations that you have no knowledge of. Return the credit file back to the Credit Agency with the items in question highlighted.

  4. You should then consider whether you should make a CIFAS referral which creates a referral procedure on all future applications for credit.
