There is a debt that is in my name, date of birth etc but registered at a different address so I was unaware of it until a debt collection company contacted me. I reported it as fraud to the police, the debt collection company and to the company the debt was owed. The debt collection company backed off saying that they were unable to enforce the debt as it was fraudulent so the company the money was owed to have sold it to another company and now they are demanding payment. The police say that the offence is the theft of the goods so the original company is technically the victims as they have lost out.
I haven’t spoken to the new debt collection company yet as I have just found out about it today and don’t know how to proceed from here.
