The previous tenant owes a vast sum of money to the DWP and letters from a debt recovery agency acting on their behalf are sending correspondence to my address in her name for immediate payment etc.
The previous tenant vacated the flat 3 years ago but I am still receiving letters for this person whom is unknown to me.
Have had the benefit fraud team visit me due to the fact that she owed money to the council tax and that she told them she still resided at her old/my address.
I am now convinced that this person is using my address to keep these departments off her back.
Have also received a vague plain white postcard from I think Wescott Credit services addressed to the occupier asking me to give them a call regarding a ref. number. (I ignored this card and binned it).
Can anyone advise what I should do. It is so bad at times I feel like handing my flat keys back to the housing association.
Problems with ALL utilities regarding her debts have been resolved.
However, the final straw is the debt owed to the DWP. Dont know for sure how to proceed with this problem.
