Fake Accounts made to address; Criminal Activity?

Go to solution

Hi,

 

I've lived in a shared accommodation for 10 months and been the sole tenant for most of that time. Of the 4 rooms, 2 are vacant always.

 

There has been an influx of post coming for specific people from banks, council, credit companies and phone contracts.

 

The specific floor of flats I live in used to be used as a brothel and criminal activity.

I've been liaising with the property manager to clear up the place of materials and report all names on the letters. We believe that the accounts are made to build up a credit score and take out larger loans from banks.

 

The most recent letter is for a £35 Sim Unlimited contract for 24 months from someone who has never lived in the building. Another letter has come from BT to the same person with a Sim Contract this month.

 

Please advise me on what to do and how to stop this continuing.

 

Regards

Call each individual banks fraud team. Stick an alert about the address. They should then start reporting this out to credit agencies.
