Fraud committed in my name
My ex partner committed fraud in my name about seven years ago. He fraudulently opened credit cards and never re paid the bank. He admitted this and had an affidavit done stating that he committed this and took ownership and we have a legal agreement that he will pay. However I’ve recently been contacted and the bank is now asking me to pay because he just stopped paying in 2012. What can I do to resolve this and get my name cleared up and most importantly to get him to pay
The conduct is clearly fraudulent…he thankfully admitted to it. You can go to the police station with jurisdiction and lay a charge of fraud. That it happened in 2012 is irrelevant as crime does not prescribe. Unfortunately, without any compelling ground to the contrary bank will continue to hold you liable. My suggestion is that you approach the forensic unit of that very bank with the affidavit he (your Ex) deposed to.
