    With the statements on their own, probably not, though if someone knows your personal details (such as DoB) along with your name and address, they could in theory set up fraudulent accounts (potentially bank accounts, phone contracts, etc.) You most likely don't have anything to get too worried about, but I'd suggest giving your bank a call to query this, and if you want to be completely sure you can request a copy of your credit report (from Experian/Equifax/Callcredit).

    I've recently had someone try to set up a bank account and phone contract in my name, so my recommendation would be to err on the cautious side. In my case, the accounts weren't successfully opened as they didn't get my DoB or other details correct. I got letters from the bank and mobile company notifying me, and they've now put an extra security check on my credit file to guard against any future problems.
