Hi all, new here and wanted to ask a question.
About 8 months ago I signed up with one of your well-known bucketshop brokers (naivety and not doing proper research.) I traded for about a week, decided it wasn't for me and pulled out, having lost about £140, but the rest of the money I put in I got out OK. I did provide personal details to verify my account. Fast forward a few months, I get a phone call from an "account manager" saying he wanted to withdraw funds to me, I said "there's nothing in the account but if you want to send me money, feel free" and he charged my card £500. I initiated a chargeback and got this money back OK. I am now very worried that my personal details including passport information are in the hands of organised criminals. I have put a mark on my credit report so that if anyone tries to apply for a mortgage or credit card I will be notified and I will have to confirm it, I have also got in touch with the police but there doesn't appear to be anything they can do unless some crime has already been committed. Is there anything you guys can suggest? Is there anything I can do to mitigate the fact that my details may be in the hands of organised criminals?
