If you have recently discovered that your landlord is using your telephone number and address as his on his loans for vehicles, you need to have a face to face discussion as to the reasons for this. My concern is that possibly you may be in line for identity theft by the landlord.

You then need to follow up the face to face meeting with the landlord with an e mail or a letter confirming what was discussed keeping a copy of the written documentation for future need if problems result.

Good luck.
