A Cornish MP backs a campaign to stop online shoppers being scammed over Christmas.

Experts reckon ID fraud could rise as more of us buy presents on the internet.

Truro and Falmouth representative Sarah Newton is urging people to report it.

Here are three things you can do protect your identity: 

1) Only use a trusted retailer's website.

2) Don't give away too much personal information on sites like Facebook and Twitter.

3) Use strong passwords with a mixture of numbers, upper and lowercase letters.
