Imposter on my credit file!

Hi there, 

I have just checked my credit score on checkmyfile and under the Electoral Roll field there are 2 reported addresses for someone with a similar (not entirely correct) name that's definitely not me!! 
I have emailed Crediva who put these on my file but haven't heard back? Should I also notify the police?

Thank you

    No. Crediva haven't committed any crimes - it's just a matching error.

    Dispute it with Crediva and any other CRA where it appears.
