A neighbour has asked me to fill in an Identity Confirmation Form, with regard to their daughters student loan. Now I've never met the daughter and have only met the neighbour once before (about 3 months ago) - so I can't really fill it in...

I'm struggling to think of what I can say that will politely refuse to fill it in, but not create a feud with my neighbour :-P

Have you seen the form? They usually expect that you have known the person for a periiod of time and ask this.

Thats where you can say that you can't fill it in cos you don't meet the criteria.

Why refuse to fill it in? These forms are a waste of time - everyone knows that. If you've met the neighbour, however briefly or fleetingly, and have no reason to suspect that they're involved in an elaborate scam with the student loan company (tbh I can think of much better targets) then just do them a favour and sign the form. You might need them to help you out at some point in the future.

Life is too short.

Why not say just that? At the end of the day, if she is found to be a fraud, you could be bothered by the people botherers. Surely the neighbour has a friend that could help them out?

Quite simply because it is fraud. Depending on your profession even an investigation for fraud could cause serious problems. The fact they have asked someone who has never met their daughter would make me very suspicious.
