Purchased from an online shop that is a scam site how to protect from ID and credit fraud.

I purchased an item from an online shop that now appears to be a scam site.
I have contacted my credit card and reported to Action Fraud.
As the store/people have all my information how do I go about protecting myself from identity and credit fraud?

  • Be more careful before jumping at a bargain. Always check who you're buying from 

    Check your credit files from time to time, but it's very unlikely that anyone will be applying for credit. It's a different kind of ne'er-do-well who does that.

    I know and am usually very careful.

    Wow, how did you fall for that!? The prices are ridiculously cheap that they're on obvious giveaway.

    Always remember if it's too good to be true.....

    I love the way the About Us says its a haven for fashion and clothes then waffles on about women going on a journey with their clothes etc when they sell model toys.


    Main thing is to tell the bank whose card you use. They will most likely cancel the card and issue a replacement. Outside of that its monitoring your credit file for any spurious applications.
