Fighting I once had a client pretend to be someone else in an ill-disguised attempt to buy his own property to avoid repossession. But my all time favorite was a chap who, without a shadow of a qualm, told me his deposit would be coming from a stolen credit card. Such extreme cases were few and far between. But the rise in identity fraud of all kinds has meant we now have to be constantly alert for ID fraud, mortgage fraud and money laundering. ID fraud comes in many forms. There is the basic case of someone using documents pretending to be someone else. A recent experience with the DVLA suggests a worrying lack of concern from the powers that be. A driving license for a gentleman I’d never heard of turned up in my letterbox. Mrs B went and asked the local police what to do and was told DVLA make mistakes all the time and not to worry. The DVLA said send it back. I wasn’t happy with that so I phoned to ask the DVLA if it was their mistake, or if my address was being deliberately used. They refused to tell me on the grounds that I was not the person who was on the license. Now I dislike jobsworths with a passion, so I pointed out that I could supply all the details to pass any security questions as I had the license which told me name, address date of birth, etc. fraud Jobsworth had to think about that and then decided I couldn’t be the holder of the license as I had said I was someone else first. I told him I lied the first time, but he did not believe me. Upshot was nothing was done to investigate what could easily be a case of ID fraud.
