What are CIFAS Markers?

CIFAS stands for the Credit Industry Fraud Avoidance Scheme. CIFAS is a not-for-profit organisation that manages the UK’s largest database of fraudulent conduct. They have over 1,000 member organisations, including the vast majority of financial institutions, who use the database to share and receive information about customers suspected to have been involved in or subject to financial crime, or those they believe to pose an unacceptable risk to business.

If you have a CIFAS marker, this means that a financial institution has concerns about activity on your account. However, unless you have been a victim of fraud, these markers do not show up on credit reports. So, you may not know you have one until you apply for credit or a new bank account and have your application refused.

CIFAS Marker Removal

CIFAS markers can have enormous repercussions for both individuals and businesses. For example, you may struggle to get credit, be unable to work in the financial services sector, have loans refused for your business, and beyond. Markers can last for up to six years.

So, if you believe a CIFAS marker has been unfairly filed against you, it’s essential to get a solicitor’s advice as soon as possible. In some cases, it may be possible to get a CIFAS marker removed.

CIFAS marker removal can be a complex process, involving contacting various institutions and putting forward a compelling case. It is precisely because of this that it is recommended that you take the advice of a solicitor who is highly experienced in this area before you do anything.
