@Lee - Tell us the story, I am intersted. How did that come about? Most likely they were pretending to be you. Its happened to my mate and boss before. Someone gave the police/authoritys their details after an accident or to avoid fair dodgeing.
I have one of the oldest email address's which I registered with the previous owner of the company that owned hotmail.com before it was acquired by microsoft.
They went on a rampage of registering it with hotels, gyms, the Police, Argos, Sainsbury, Gumtree, various dating websites, various pr0n sites, the government jobs site etcetera.
My unique email receive thousands of spam emails.
So I went to one particular website asked for password to be sent to my email that I own, changed password then logged into a created account and found their address.
I found the address many times this way.
I also phoned them and their excuse was their name too, it must be their email as when they got windows for xmas they believed it must be theirs.
This was after receiving numerous emails with MS reset instructions to my alternative email account.
So I contacted city of London police explained the problem they agreed it was identity fraud and arrested them.
Thats all I know
