Detection and prevention of fraud
The personal information we have collected from you may be shared with fraud prevention agencies (such as CIFAS) who will use it to prevent fraud and money-laundering and to verify your identity. If fraud is detected, you could be refused certain services, finance, or employment. In appropriate cases, the council and fraud prevention agencies may also share personal information with law enforcement agencies to detect, investigate and prevent crime.
See more information about how your information will be used by us and these fraud prevention agencies, and your data protection rights.
