This sort of thing usually occurs because you are licensed at the home address of another insured driver.

If you are licensed at the same address with another driver then his insurance company requires that he addresses you and all other drivers licensed at that address as either a covered person or excluded by name. Either way your name will appear on that persons policy. There is nothing illegal about it.

If you have moved, you are required by law to update your address on your license within 30 days. Otherwise your name could appear on the policy of another person because the insurance company assumes you are still a licensed drivers at that address. Nothing illegal here either. You just need to update your drivers license with your correct address to avoid these situations.

AnswerIt's hard to say exactly without more information, but you have numerous options. You can call the insurance company and explain the situation. Call law enforcement, if their has been misuse of your personal information (it's a crime).
