My wife and her new partner are using the address of a flat

Resolved Question:

My wife and her new partner are using the address of a flat joint owned by my wife and I, where I live full time and my wife lives two days a week, to open a joint bank account. Her partner lives elsewhere and they also live together on a camping site in a campervan.
It all sounds a bit dodgy to me what do you think?
I don't fancy being an accomplice in a bank fraud.

It is now ay impacts on you - although you are free to return any letters addressed to some one who does not live at your house
