BBC Radio 4's Money Box was broadcast on Monday, 26 November 2007, at 1502 GMT.

Presenter Vincent Duggleby took your questions on identity protection and credit reports and put them to a panel of experts.

What steps can you take to protect your personal data?

Maybe you think someone has applied for credit in your name and want to know what to do?

How much information is held on your credit report and who uses it?

If there's a mistake on your file how can it be corrected?

Or perhaps you've been turned down for credit and want to know why.

Whatever your concern, our panel of experts was here to give you advice.

Vincent Duggleby was joined by:

  • Ed Mayo, chief executive, National Consumer Council
  • Jill Stevens, director of consumer affairs, Experian
  • Roland Perry, founder,
  • Sandra Quinn, director of corporate communications, APACS

    Presenter: Vincent Duggleby
    Producer: Lesley McAlpine
