    • Birmingham City Council,  told me because the car is on my name I am responsible  for it and I can't have anyone take the blame.  
    • Send them on SAR immediately. Do it today. Read up on this forum and elsewhere on the Internet about crifas. How long have you had the account? Have you been having large sums of money going in or out recently – especially paid in cash? This kind of unexplained behaviour generally relates to something that triggers a suspicion that your account is being used for money laundering or some other kind of fraud. If that's what has happened then you will find it almost impossible to get information about it and also almost impossible to find out when your account might be made available to you. If a CIFAS marker has been applied to your account, the bank takes upon itself absently Draconian powers and you will scarcely even get any assistance from the FOS who quite frankly are simply a poodle to the financial services sector
    • In addition to dealing with the individual problems that this person is creating for you, you obviously need to deal with it holistically because there is a problem of identity fraud which may well continue and will certainly affect you and your family throughout your lives. Nobody should underestimate the seriousness of this kind of thing. Although people will commonly apply the label of "identity theft", what you are actually dealing with here is "identity fraud" and it is well understood in academic circles. The police were quite wrong to say that there was nothing they could do. I'm afraid that this reflects under-resourcing coupled with poor staff development and a poor attitude. There are offences being committed here and the girl herself is committing fraud contrary to sections 1(2a), & 2 of the Fraud Act 2006  https://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/2006/35/contents   Of course the police will find it very difficult to do anything and given their resources, I suppose they have other priorities. However, you could be certain that if your family was related to the head of the local police force, they would be dealing with it PDQ. You say that this has been going on for a number of years – but you don't say how long. Maybe you had better give us a detailed account of what has happened. Please set out in a bullet pointed chronology so that we don't have too much narrative but a good structured idea of what has happened. This should include a list of the problems which have occurred and how they have been dealt with and also complaints which you have attempted to make. You definitely need to start taking this very seriously. How old is your daughter? In terms of opening mail, you should open every letter that comes to you and if you find that it is associated with this fraud, then you should photocopy it/scan it into a computer and start building up a file. I hope you have kept some of the correspondence and other documents which you might have received. Please let us know what you have. You are definitely going to have to start accumulating a robust file of evidence and I suggest that the first thing you do is you start sending SARs out to all of the organisations which have been involved and see if you can tease out of them any personal data that they might have which is apparently linked to you. Either they will provide you with a statutory disclosure – or, of course, it will be amusing if they say that they are more proof of your identity and that they won't let you have the disclosure because they are not satisfied that the data they have relates to you. I don't think you're in a position to make any serious complaint until you have put together a convincing file of evidence which shows that there is systematic identity fraud. We will help you to start to do this and help you to structure the file that you will put together and then we can begin to explore avenues to make a complaint. It also occurs to me that they could be a basis here for making a complaint under the Protection from Harassment Act 1997 although this would be an unusual application of the act – but we can have a look when you put together your file.  
    • Correct.  If the breach of statutory duty continues then you issue another claim.  The distress you are claiming for is only the the distress you experienced up to the issue of the first claim.  
    • Thank you all for your help. Is there any way to find out what (if any) debt I owe?

My daughter left her bag on the bus last week. Had her phone and PE kit in it. I've got no money to replace any of it, so yesterday she had to go into school with no PE kit. Had to do the lesson in her knickers. She's got PE again on Friday, there's no way I'm going to be able to replace it by then. I don't know what to do :ohwell:

First thing is to call the bus company and see if it was found. Then report loss/theft to phone company to get it blocked.

 

How old is your daughter? I'm assuming at Primary school. Then contact the headteacher and explain what has happened so that school knows it isn't just your daughter forgetting to bring her kit in. They might be able to help, some schools have spare PE kit for this situation.

I've already called the bus company. It hasn't been found. My daughter's 14, at secondary. Although the school know she's not forgetting her kit, because she left it on the bus, they are still saying its her fault. They don't have any spare kit.

I think asking a 14 year old girl to PE in her knickers is bordering on the abusive. I'd want to complain to the headteacher.

 

To be fair to the school it is your daughter's fault that she doesn't have her PE kit. She left it on the bus! At 14 she is old enough to be responsible for keeping her kit safe and not losing it. But the school's response is not helpful in finding a way forward.

 

Does it have to be the 'official school uniform' PE kit? Can you get her something cheap from somewhere in similar colours? Is there a secondhand school uniform sale scheme run by the PTA or similar? Many schools have something like that.

I don't know about abusive - certainly embarrassing, and as you say, its her fault she left it on the bus, she's old enough to make sure she's got everything before getting off the bus and to be responsible, and she's learnt her lesson.

 

There isn't 'official' PE kit, apart from the top, but they let her wear her school shirt so she wasn't literally in just her underwear. I just don't know where I'm going to get a pair of shorts for a couple of pounds before Friday. I'll have to ask around and see if I can borrow some.

This story reminds me of when I was around 13 years of age. I always enjoyed riding on the buses in my local area (still do in fact). We are going back 25 years or so here.

 

 

At the start of Year 9 I had this bus pass and I remember going on a few buses after school before going home - getting some shopping after school and all that. My mother used to know that I liked doing this.

 

 

Not sure how much stuff was in the bag, probably one or two exercise books and a calculator for Maths.

 

 

One evening I arrived home after walking through the alleyway from the main road to the street I used to live on, and my mother asked me "where's your bag?" It then dawned on me that I no longer had it. The problem was that I had been on so many buses that I must have left it on one of them, but couldn't remember which one.

 

 

It was fruitless contacting the transport company place as I couldn't remember where or when I lost my bag, and when my English teacher had telephoned my mother at home when he was concerned about some homework that wasn't been handed in, she told him about it. I doubt that Lost Property had it because of the "finders keepers" concept that local people in my area had when they had found something that belonged to someone else.

 

 

Got a new bag soon after, and I think that I got the other things replaced for a relatively small amount of money, but it didn't happen again!

Now this is all sorted out, do you really think I should complain? Or just leave it?

Hi. Just read your post. When I was at school no PE kit meant underwear - I didn't realise it still happened these days. I had to do it a couple of times and it was very embarrassing! It depends on how you want to proceed - 14 is quite old to be running about in underwear. Were there boys in the lesson too? Was it indoor or outdoor? I'm sure as she was wearing a shirt on top she was more covered up than if she was swimming, but some girls knickers can be quite skimpy these days. Probably depends if she wants you to take it further too?

Sorry - only just seen your post, I haven't been on for a while. I didn't take it any further, my daughter preferred to just forget about it! It was a mixed indoor lesson, but she managed to borrow a t-shirt off someone so wasn't that bad at the time.
