  1. Thank you very much for your replies. I will check Noddle when my new report is generated. Maroondevo52 thank you so much for that! Knowing it has happened to other people too is very reassuring as I was convinced something bad had happened and your reply has put mind at rest. Thank you again.
  2. I am really sorry if I have posted this in the wrong place as I was not sure where to post this. I use Clearscore to check my credit report every month and up to now my financial account information has always been the same and shows Santander current account, Santander credit card and Lloyds current account (Lloyds in default which drops off in six months) Today my credit report states "one new current account added to your report" I have not opened another account and the report does not give any details at all as to what exactly this new account is. Can anyone tell me please if this means that someone has opened something in my name? I always worry about fraud/identity theft and I am really worried about this.
  3. I know I posted this some time ago and am really sorry for the late update. Just in case anyone ever reads this who find themselves in the same position. I sent them a letter explaining that this child was not known to me, had never lived at my address and gave them mine, my partners and my 21 year old sons name. They wrote back to me very quickly and said that sometimes people give false details and as there is no requirement for people to carry I.D, this can happen. They appologised and said that my address had been removed from this action (or words to that effect. Again thank you for your help.
  4. Thank you. I learnt the hard way a few years ago that recording calls when you are in a dispute about something is Very important as a company etc can not go on to later deny something that was said when you have absolute proof. Again thank you both very much for your help. I will post back if I receive any more letters from TFL.
  5. I do have a son but he is grown up and is 21 years old. The address on the letter is completely correct including door number and post code. I have just posted the letter back to them and included a letter of my own in with it. Thank you for your reply and for removing my duplicate post.
  6. I am so sorry that my post has posted twice. I am on a mobile and do not know how to remove it. I'm really sorry.
  7. I do not have a scanner but will take a photo of the letter before I post it back. I did record the call. I have an app on my phone that records all my calls just in case I ever need to prove anything. The letter does not ask for my side of the story. The letter reads as follows :- Dear Parent/Guardian As your son/daughter was unable to show a valid ticket or other authority to travel, they were recently issued with a penalty fare notice under the Greater London Authority Act 1999. The details of this are shown above. (The top of the letter shows bus route, inspector badge no) we are now writing to explain what you must do next. Please do not ignore this letter. There are details of how to pay this penalty fare overleaf. If you pay before 02/05/17 the penalty fare will be reduced from £80 to £40. If you wish to appeal against the issue of the penalty fare you must do so by 02/05/17. Instructions on how to dp this are also shown overleaf. In due course, if no payment has been received and no successful appeal submitted we may decide to take furthur action to recover the debt. If you have already paid the outstanding amount please ignore this reminder (I did not even receive an earlier letter) and accept our thanks for dealing with this issue promptly. Yours sincerely Operations Director IRCAS on behalf of transport for London. Thank you again for your help DX100Uk I really appreciate it. I would assume the letter is the std one whereby they ask for 'the offenders' side of the story? dx
  8. Thank you very much for your reply. I will do that. I just hope that that will be enough for them. I live in a tower block that contains fifty flats and cannot help wondering if this child actually lives in my block and gave the correct block and street name but my door number. I feel like I want to knock on every door in the block to ask if they have a child of this name. I know that is probably a bad idea but I am so upset. Thanks again for your reply. By you saying that it is "TFLs problem not mine" that does make me feel a little bit better.
  9. Please can someone advise me what I should do. I received a letter from TFL addressed to the parent/guardian of a child who was caught on a bus without a ticket. This child is completely unknown to me though. I have telephoned IRCAS who told me to return the letter to them with "not known at this address" written on but lots of people who are genuine offenders must do that. There are three people (myself, my partner and our 21 year old son who live in our household and I can prove this easily but how am I supposed to prove that someone does not live at my address? How is it possible to prove a negative? Please can someone tell me what I should do, I am really worried.
