Could be this, or possibly another cut of Duerer, that may be out there in the wild…

I don't use Windows, but this seems to be the solution (not for Opentype support, (as Kat has pointed out)

On a Mac you can access special characters using Character viewer.

Either scaled, and sheared, or possibly the earlier version…

No worries. If you have a bigger sample, you may get a 100% ID. (You may get one yet from someone with younger eyes )

Looks like a cut of Baskerville (maybe even Mrs Eaves!), but sample too small for my old eyes to say 100% which one…

Not really sure this is a cause for revolt, to be honest… does not the 'lions share' of the fault here lie betwixt the keyboard and the chair back. If you don't want your email address, or any other infos shown about you, isn't it your responsibility to check the settings on your account, rather than just expecting the default settings to suit your personal preferences? It's not exactly rocket surgery, or brain science (insert complicated thing of choice here) to change your settings when you sign up for an account, is it? Agreed, one would prefer an 'opt in', rather than an 'opt out' to having personal infos published on line, especially when an email address is a 'required' field in an account, but we also have a responsibility to check what we are signing up to meets our own preferences, when we open an on line account, don't we? If other users feel the same way, mayhap the staff here will take note and change the default settings, but users can take note and change their own settings, if they feel the same as you do.

Private message will explain.

It's some hinky scaling after all…

The top line appears to be scaled on a glyph by glyph basis. It's hard to tell from a slightly soft original, but I'd say with 100% confidence that that's a match. Since the scaling is odd, it's not impossible the original designer made some other slight adjustments…

My old eyes on the scaling I'm Long overdue a visit to Specsavers™

Not sure why you ruled out Adobe Garamond, as, as far as my old eyes can tell, that's what it is. I think there is just some hinky scaling applied to the 'GOD' part of the text…

A bit more info would be helpful. What apps are you having problems with (Illustrator, Word, Inkscape?)? Is this on Mac OS (as it appears to be) or some other OS? Whatever you use, have you checked that the kerning and/or tracking haven't been set to something odd, which could cause the spacing to be off?

"The fonts don't have an * next to them but are still not recognising them when I import a document."
Can you select and use the fonts in question in a new document in Illustrator? (Are they showing up in the fonts menu in Illustrator and other apps and can you use them?)
If so, have you tried selecting the effected text, changing it to a different font, then changing it back to the original?

It's a cut of this, but is too distorted and faint to tell which
