Identity theft

Someone has used my identity to set up a mobile account about ten years ago.

The bills don't come out of my account.

I've reported it three times to Virgin and they did not follow up each time.

Is this a criminal matter for the police?

Should I be considering legal action against Virgin for negligence and harm to my credit record?

Is this a matter for ofcom?

Has anyone had similar experiences with Virgin mobile?

Re: Identity theft

unlikely to be any legal action you can take against VM. if someone managed to give enough into to be you then they didn't do anything illegal.

You should report it to the police.

Ofcom won;'t accept complaints
