That’s amazing thank you so much for you help. And I’m assuming you received all maintenance loans and student finance ok ?
Yes it was absolutely fine, I also managed to get a Monzo account and some savings accounts.

New current accounts were off limits for a few years, and I've only recently been able to get a credit card but I'm about five or so years in now

What do I do then. I’m urgent for a reply!
Don't commit fraud

(Original post by sarahmh_)
In all fairness when I reported a similar incident to Action Fraud (working group before it gets to the police etc) that's what put this CIFAS marker on my account in the first place as they see me as a victim of fraud. It's not always a bad thing, but it's worth finding out why you have it.

Like above people have mentioned try and get a Monzo bank account in the meantime and contact relevant parties.
Ohhhh that's a different kind of CIFAS marker I'm guessing. There's more than one out there.

At one point I had a National Art Pass with ArtFund and they got hacked... ended up with member's details.

They gave us all protective registration with CIFAS at their expense.

For a while I had to undergo additional checks when applying for things to ensure it was actually me applying. Didn't do anything fraudulent and wasn't rejected for stuff (not allowed to do that automatically due to protective reg) but it was a pain in the arse waiting 14 days for something that should take 3 minutes!

Do you know what will happen to my accounts I have cause I still have NatWest and another I’m not sure if I’ll lose them when I turn 18 and how can I get a tuition loan for uni
If they clock on they might get closed and has it been closed already or still open and tuition loans should be ok
