    Recently I received a letter from one of Shop Direct's catalogue groups...very.co.uk. They have stated that someone has attempted to use my details and this has been reported to fraud prevention group CIFAS. My belief is that a sibling may have done this since someone called me before posing as an employment agency trying to track him down. I'm not on speaking terms with my sibling but he claimed (to my other sibling) that they were looking for details of relatives to track him down. He has admitted owing money to catalogues which may include this group.

    The problem is I owe money to very.co.uk myself. Do you think this could be an attempt to trick me into contacting them? Or is this just their legal obligation regardless of whether I owe them money or not? If I contact CIFAS would this get back to very.co.uk? Are they working together to catch people out? I'm not sure if they could enforce my debts anyway since it's been 6 years or close enough.
