I think I've been a victim of fraud

If you think someone has got into your Vodafone account, or a Vodafone account has been set up in your name without your permission, you need to let us know.

You can report an incident if you’re:

  • An existing Vodafone customer
  • A non-Vodafone customer who has had a Vodafone account set up in their name 

Report it online 

Before you do anything else, ask yourself: 

  • Could this have been you?  
  • Could someone else have made the change – a family member perhaps? 

If the answer is no and you suspect someone has gained access to your account without permission – don’t panic. Let us know as soon as possible so that we can take steps to protect your information.

What happens next? 

Once you’ve told us about the suspected fraud:
