    I just had a policeman (very nice he was too!) knock on my door and say he'd brought me my passport because it had been found in a nearby village last night. Well As far as I knew my passport was upstairs in my bedroom and I haven't been to that particular village for quite a while.

    Then he opened it up and showed me the photo in and asked if that was me last year, well the only similarity was dark hair! so I told him it wasn't and he said oh, thats strange you were the only hit in the north east with your name with that same spelling. He wen't away again after that (shame)

    But anyway now I'm worried incase someone is using my identity when its obviously not me. Anyone know how I can find out if someone is or not?

    You can apply for a copy of your credit history. This cost £1 the last time I did it and citizens advice gave me the adresses of the 4 companies, I needed to request from 2 of them.

    Here is a link that you might falso find useful:

    Hi kati,

    I would take Debbies advice and go to your local police station and check it out.

    Ask them for more information and I am sure they will help you out.

    Love Mini xxx

    well he was from the local police station so wont they have to look into it more to find out who it belonged to? Unless they just have a lost property thing there and they put it in. But shouldn't they think it's suspicious themselves? I will give them a couple of days then go down and ask about it.

    the father of one of my kids friends is a policeman maybe I'll ask him about it if he's at the school this afternoon
