This is something that Crosby devoted an entire chapter to in his report
Here's the summary:
• All types of identity related fraud are growing rapidly and now cost the UK around
£1.7 billion a year.
• Hitherto the focus has been on identifying and preventing fraud.
• Consumers’ interest is focused on the easy repair of their identity as and when it is
compromised by identity theft.
• Identity repair services are an essential part of consumers’ trust in any identity
• The recent National Consumer Council initiative is a good first step, but there is a
pressing need to upgrade identity repair services for existing identity assurance systems
and any new schemes.
