hi no i have not,l dont think it really has any thing to do with the post office,l think the big problem is to do with someone using my address without my say so,there has got to be a reason someone has done this its not normal to use someone elses address,and it looks like from the dates on the wage slips it has been going on for some time,at least 9 months,l think l need a little more then just telling the post office for my money.i need to know what l can do. kind regards lin.

Hi,

If you are concerned that you are a victim of identity fraud then you must contact the police.

You can also contact the company that is sending these wage slips out to your address and tell them that this person is not known at your address.

I would also contact the post office because they have the power to stop mail addressed to this individual being sent to you.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely

AJ
