Today in the mail I received a Statement from Home Hardware saying that I owed $130 from a purchase I had supposedly made at their Leumeah store a month ago.
I haven't bought anything from Home Hardware, nor do I have an account with them and I don't even live in Sydney!
I am guessing someone has used my name and address to open up an account with them and bought some items.
I googled Identity Theft on the internet and it suggested to place a Fraud Alert on my credit history.
Has anyone done this before or been in this situation and what did you do? I just want to make sure I am covered in case this person starts creating accounts here, there and everywhere in my name.
