Fraudsters 'target bank accounts' Since the group's last report, a year ago, it says there has been a fall in traditional forms of identity theft, including "application" fraud, in which people use stolen or false documents to open an account. But the report says there's been a "vast" increase in cyber crime, where fraudsters use the internet and e-mail to tap into existing accounts or to find out credit card details. One scam involves a bogus e-mail from Revenue and Customs, asking for bank account details to receive a tax rebate. Be aware people!!!!!!
