Crimestoppers hunts 25 identity thieves

The charity Crimestoppers has launched a campaign to track down 25 individuals guilty of attempting to fraudulently obtain genuine identity documents in the UK.


The charity is looking for 25 most wanted fraudsters who are attempting to steal the identities of UK nationals in order to receive documents such as passports and driving licences that will be used to impersonate others for engaging in criminal activity such as money laundering, drug trafficking, fraud and illegal immigration.

Crimestoppers is an independent charity and operates the 24/7 telephone number 0800 555 111 and online form which people can pass on information about crimes anonymously. You can view all the fraudsters here.

Chair and Founder, Lord Ashcroft KCMG PC said: “These perpetrators of identity fraud are using genuine details of innocent members of the public to apply for passports, driving licences and other documents that will be used to engage in criminal activity.

“These individuals are not who they say they are and the details you believe you know about them are likely to be false but still help in finding their location. Any information that you pass on however can play a vital part in them being located and facing justice.”

View the fraudsters and read more on the Crimestoppers website.
