Hello does he end up using your connection, using your data allowance?
Do you have a password ***** your broadband?
How would he have got that? They are usually quite hard to guess.
But wouldn't he have had to be in your house?
Ok. There isn't a specific offence in using your broadband per se but there are other computer misuse offences.
It isn't hacking if he had your password.
It could potentially amount to a computer misuse offence if he used your password ***** permission although I could not guarantee the interest of the police in the matter. Computer misuse offences are not taken as seriously here as they are in the States.
Can I clarify anything for you?
