My ex of 7 years has always had severe money problems - mainly in that he spends far more than he has, and usually owes several thousand to each creditor that was duped into lending him money in the first place. My issue is that he continues to give out my phone number to his creditors, ensuring that I receive all the phone calls from solicitors and debt collecting companies. I hand out his mobile number to them with pleasure, but as he has just let his 3 young children know that he won't be seeing them any more, I feel that I want to be a little more pro-active. I haven't got his address as he has apparently split from his latest <strike>money lender</strike> girl friend and moved somewhere else. This is no doubt a gut reaction in response to his appalling Christmas email to the children, but that enough is enough and I want to take it further. Is it a criminal offence? and can I report him to the police for giving out false information?
