    Dears.. it.
    Please help me...

    I got an other shock when I heared an information from Vodaphone.

    I helped cousin to use my Vodaphone SIM only contract as hes a taxi drivier and hes been banned from getting contracts, loans etc , according to him.

    He has been using and paying bills.. Contract is in my name. Some months hes not paying so money taken from my account - direct debit.

    As he was hiding from me , I called him but he started talking in a rude way. Now hes not answering.. I had a doubt. I went to Vodaphone store and checked.
    OH.. I was shocked when I heard the information..

    He has updated and bought a IPhone 7 AND also changed my address.. I never know the address he has given. Im in TW3 but he changed it to SE20.

    How could he do it ? He stole my Vodaphone Security Password and talked to Vodaphone pretending me giving all my personal details to bought a New Contract in my name. Vodaphone says Im responsible for the bills and contract.

    I dont know how to explain my situation. I m going to fall in a massive fraud.

    Please help me how to deal with this fraud.. How to report to police to arrest him ..please

    Walk into the police station and ask to report a fraud?

    Yup, as above. Go the police, report the fraud and then contact Voda and ask them to pass the info to their fraud team.

    I guess you gave him all your passwords ect? That could create a problem with Voda, but you'll have to see what happens. . .
