    fraudulent use of address 30th Mar 05 at 9:22 PM
    dear all,

    we moved into a new house in may 2004, three weeks ago a flood of credit card and other credit account statements dropped onto the mat. all were addressed to the previous owners and all were overdue, over the limit etc.

    it appears they had their mail re-directed and continued to use our address for credit purposes, b******s, before moving to spain.we contacted the various companies,who couldn't give us any information about what they were up to and said they would deal with it!

    our main concern is having fraudulent activity linked with this address, experian, the credit reference agency said that bad debt is linked with a persons name and not with a particular address, i dont believe that especially as we've been living at the address while the fraud has been taking place,

    does anybody have any suggestions as to how to get this checked out?

    thanks for your help
