Becoming a victim of identity theft is unpleasant, time-consuming and can lead to financial losses. OP-Visa Gold now offers you an Identity theft protection service. You will get year-round personal service, 24 hours a day. Experienced agents are there for you when you need help. You will get instructions on how to diminish the risk of becoming a victim of fraud and, in case you have become a victim, you will get help in clearing up the situation and limiting the implications.

Identity theft means that an unauthorised person uses your personal details to commit fraud or other criminal acts, without your permission. This can happen to anyone and anytime. It is quite usual that the fraudster raises loans, buys mobile phone subscriptions, orders items or applies for the registration of title to your property. The fraudster will keep everything that is valuable, and you will be left alone with the obligations and demands for payment.

Identity theft protection helps you take preventive action and clear up the situation in case a fraud has occurred, and to restrict the implications if you have become a victim, for example by the following means:

  • By rejecting unfounded demands for payment
  • By cancelling the subscriptions ordered
  • By deleting payment reminders
