I have had my ID stolen and someone pretending to be me have been allowed by O2 to obtain aphone or SIM without having their ID properly verified, how do I know this because it wasn't me. O2 now regularly hassle me for money via a debt recovery agency despite being informed of my sittuation. This affects my credit rating and Experian have also contacted O2 on my behalf, they still do not acknowledge. Can I speak to someone direct from O2 who can help? No, I get pushed from pillar to post. For a communications company O2 are impossible to communicate with (unless they make money out of the exchange of course). Please can someone give me a contact number of someone in O2 who I can get through to fairly quickly and who can solve this problem without putting me on hold and passing me onto someone else?

@Grahame-C

If you have been a victim of identity theft, then you need to also report to Action Fraud or 101

If someone has got your information, then im afraid they have all the information needed to get an account with any company as they have your what is known as PII data (Personally Identifiable Information).

Let me also tag @O2Waqas and o2simon as they might be able to add some more insight for you.
