    • You honestly have a very serious situation here. Is there any chance that this problem might be being caused by somebody that you know? In future you should open all letters and copy them and then return them to the sender but make sure you have a copy. This is very important. I understand that the three of you are being targeted. I am saying "targeted" because it is too much of a coincidence that you are all the subject of the same kind of identity theft/identity fraud committed by different people. This suggests very strongly to me that there is one person who is doing this and the fact that this person is doing this to all three of you also suggests very strongly that it is somebody who is known to you. I would find it difficult to imagine that there could be any other explanation. Have you got a list of the companies that have become involved because of this problem? Please could you post up a list here
    • Yes I am so sorry.  I am using my phone to type and it comes out in a block.  I will see if I can borrow use of a friends computer next time 
    • I'm sorry that you have been upset about it. I think you are very justified feel that way. Before I start answering, can I please point out that this is the second time that you've posted a solid block of text. It's very difficult for people to read and to give you the enthusiastic support that you deserve. In your first post, – which was very long – one of the site team restructured it so that it was legible. We don't really have time to do this kind of thing and so please would you make sure that in future your posts are properly spaced and punctuated and that will encourage people to view your story and to give you the advice that you need.   Also, now that I have restructured your post I see that you have recognised that your posts are not properly spaced because you don't have a computer. You can still use the paragraph return with a phone and it will make it much easier.
    • Sorry I’ve just been a bit upset about it.       It started with my daughter (aged 27) four years ago.  We rang the train company and tried to sort it over the phone.  I know now that was wrong.  My daughter has had at least 6 separate letters relating to different incidents of fare evasion.   One of the incidents was going to court.   My other daughter has had about 8 or more separate incidents. She has a file which I can get this week.   My ex partner has now started to get some (Erica instead of Eric ).   There ha e been some addressed using our surname but with a forename not known.     The one relating to me had gone to court and I have had to ask them to open the case again.   I was advised not to do a statutory declaration as although I didn’t open the letter addressed with a misspelt surname I did suspect what it was and so couldn’t say I didn’t know about it.   At least one other has gone to a court.   So many we have out back in the post as unknown at This address.     There are too many to fight each one altogether for my family they must be over 20, I’m sorry this isn’t very well space I only have the use of the phone   I don’t have a computer

This all started because I needed to inform HMRC my change of employment. I received a letter to say that my tax credits are to be stopped and I owed HMRC money of around £160. I phoned HMRC and they said to disregard the letter as it was a mistake and can't work out why I was sent it in the first place. It was also confirmed that my renewable pack had gone through and I am still due to receive tax credits but they can't do anything as my details were sent to the head office due to this error and in the mean time they can't contiune my claim.


Has anyone had a simular issue or had their tax credits stopped no fault of thier own? or does anyone know how long I have to get this cock up sorted?

Now I have a letter saying I owe over £2000 for last year. How can this be I even earned less then I stated by £1k give or take a few hundred? I provided the correct information and they produced the results. All because I've changed my employement details I get this aggro. I've been nice and honest and I am rewarded with this rubbish.

Ok phoned tax credits end of last week and now they admit it was a cock up by one of their colleagues but it's still not rectified. Does anyone know a way I can get this resolved some time soon?

About the only thing I can suggest is writing a formal complaint, but don't hold your breath for how quickly it will get sorted. If you go on the HMRC website it will tell you how to complain, but make sure you do it in writing and clearly mark the letter 'complaint'.


However, when they do finally sort things out you might get £50 for the hassle.


Hopefully someone else will come along with a better idea.
