Online consumers should use the internet with caution, according to an IT security industry expert.

Neil Munroe, external affairs director at technology consultancy Equifax, said that cyber-space activity is the area customers most need to focus on in order to prevent identity fraud and theft.

"Cyber-crime and cyber ID theft is where fraudsters are going to be focusing," he continued.

"Whether it's Facebook and other social networking sites or sophisticated phishing or emails pretending to be your bank, those are the areas where people have really got to watch out and take some care."

In February this year, research carried out by IT security provider CPP found that London is the worst location in the UK for credit and debt card fraud and credit and debit card theft.

According to the research, twenty per cent of Londoners say they have had their bank cards stolen and 28 per cent have been a victim of credit card fraud.
