    I bought a contract phone from the carphone warehouse website to be delivered in store on saturday but I'm 17, and for the credit check i added a year on to make me 18. On the confirmation e-mails it says all i need to bring is the e-mail and my bank card, it says nothing about ID or anything to prove my age.
    Is there going to major consequences if they find out? I've read that its fraud , so how much trouble am i goin to get in?

    yes it's fraud - fortunately you are protected somewhat by being under 18 and the contract being invalid on that basis.
