Credit-reference agency Callcredit will distribute a leaflet entitled 'Identity Theft -- Don't become a victim'.
Only consumers who have requested a copy of the leaflet will receive one, although the Home Office is seeking additional partners for broader distribution. It will also send the leaflet by email to consumers who request it.
The drive follows last year's launch of the Home Office identity fraud website.
As part of the activity, Callcredit will offer a free month's trial of its MyCallcredit e-alert credit-monitoring service, which alerts the consumer to any potential identity theft.
