No post = FRAUD !!20/10/2008 - 3:50 PM
I am feeling so violated.
We have had no post for about a week and four things that we have paid for haven't arrived. Also credit card statements and a letter from our solicitors.
I managed to grab the postman this morning who we know really well and asked him where our post was rather jokingly.
He told us that it had been redirected to an address in Norwich . I told him that was impossible..he told me he had seen the signed document, my husband's signature apparently.
I have phoned the Post office and the Bank and they have looked into it and it seems that someone has taken our details from the internet and have tried to open accounts and gain money with our name. They haven't succeeded in managing to do that but they were able to redirect all our post to an address that no one will give me.
Not only have we lost our post but any future post will be held in a holding bay until this is sorted because I am just a voice on the phone and I could be anyone !
I just feel as though I have been burgled. There is nothing to stop this person getting passports , driving licences etc.
I think what has upset me most is the fact that this postman has seen us most days..talked to us twice in the last week and not mentioned this to us once.
Now going to make a strong cup of coffee ..please everybody be very aware of the risks on leaving card details. I never believed it could happen to us.
