Customer Question
I have an ongoing fraud...
I have an ongoing fraud case. As a result my Passport which is my only proof of ID has been held by the police.. My work place and bank are both requesting my IDs for different reasons and I cannot provide it. They say I have to show proof that the police has it or a missing passport report. I have been in touch with my case officer and he quite rudely refused to provide any.. Any suggestions what I can do? My rent is almost due but i cannot access my money.
