Is it possible for someone to access your personal information just from your CRN? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I recently went to ask a question to SFE, when I found out there number had changed. If the number changes, the line would be invalid right? For some reason it continued and asked for my CRN number, but then when they asked for my pin number (supposedly my birth date) I panicked and cut the call. Most probably they were fraud.

    Now I am worried because they at least have my CRN number on their system that might have my name record with it. I'm sort of worried and want to know if I might be a victim of fraud.

    Overall, they don't have my personal details besides my CRN, but I don't know if they would be able to access my personal information through that.

    I appreciate any advise given.


    I still haven't gotten the hang of TSR, the number I had called was 0845 026 2019
