Identity fraud refers to an illegal act which consists of the misleading of an individual in a purposeful, deliberate, and harmful fashion. Those who commit fraud typically do so to achieve a personal gain by misrepresenting themselves. Identity fraud is a broad classification within the legal spectrum, which can be manifested in a wide variety of forums and settings.

Someone recently tried to gain access to my bank account. Fortunately, my bank has some pretty good controls!

I don't know if it's the most common but it is certainly prevalent.

Identity fraud (or identity theft) is the fastest growing type of fraud in the UK and can take one of two forms.

* Identity Theft - (also known as impersonation fraud) is the misappropriation of the identity (such as the name, date of birth, current address or previous addresses) of another person, without his or her knowledge or consent. These identity details are then used to obtain goods and services in that person's name.

* Identity Fraud - is the use of a misappropriated identity in criminal activity, to obtain goods or services by deception. This usually involves the use of stolen or forged identity documents such as a passport or driving licence. Read more... UK's Fraud Prevention Service
