Podcast for October
Identity theft is one of the fastest growing crimes in the UK: which is why it is of utmost importance to safeguard private information, like credit card numbers, and banking details. Your name, or even your date of birth can net criminals thousands of pounds and destroy your credit record and good name.
In this month's podcast, Linda Pullan, Head of Content, Training & Qualifications at Payroll Alliance, talks about the growing menace of identity fraud - which costs the UK around £1.7 billion per year, and is more prevalent than drug trafficking amongst international crime syndicates.
