Do I have to provide information about my brother?
Four years ago, a few years after his wife's death, my brother sold his home and possessions and went off travelling the world on the proceeds. He has been abroad for 4 years now. Before he left, he asked if he could give my address to his bank so that his bank statements could be sent to me for safekeeping. However, today a letter came addressed to him from a mobile phone company, claiming that he owes them some money from about 3 years ago. As he is not listed on the Electoral Roll and has never lived at my address (and never will), I can only assume that the bank has passed on my address to these people - surely that is a breach of the Data Protection Act. I intend sending the letter back to the mobile phone company, advising that the addressee does not live at my address. Will that be the end of the matter?
