The number of reported credit fraud in Sweden has increased by 12 percent to 1,466 complaints so far this year, according Swedish credit organisation, UC.

Often it's people who have lost their driver's license, ID card or passport, who sustained the fraud, according to UC. Often the crimes are revealed when victims suddenly ordered copies of their credit reports to their mailbox.

"Personal information unfortunately has become a coveted commodity," writes Roland Sigbladh, marketing director at UC said.
