Over the phone
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.
Ok. No way around that.
Didn't they pick up on the fact that you were obviously not the card holder?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
She gave me her details andno they didn't pick up on it
Expert:  Jo C. replied 1 year ago.
She could make a report.
Whichever way you look at this you have represented to a person that you were her. You could argue that it falls on the dishonesty point as you had her permission but she will obviously deny that.
It is quite unlikely the police would be interested though after six years. It is just obviously a malicious complaint.
She is time barred to sue in the civil courts as six years have passed.
Can I clarify anything for you?
