Many people wonder how they can know when their identity has been stolen. You can do that by noticing if there have been any unusual purchases through your debit/credit card by looking at your bank statement. It can also be found out if mails that were important have been missing, or there have been new credit cards appearing in your record.
If you believe that your credit cards have been fraudulently used, the following agencies can be contacted to remedy the situation.

Concerns and questions can also be relayed to Equifax through their website. If you wish to send the query through the online sources available, then choose the “Ask a Question” tab and fill in the information.
There is only a need to contact one credit reference agencies because they will convey your complaint to the other two.
In case you, as an individual or business, have fallen prey to identity fraud in the last 12 months then contacting Action Fraud may be a wise idea. It is the National Fraud Reporting Centre which provides assistance and information in such cases.
