c/o
Explanation:
In the address, "v/" is short for "ved." It essentially means you can mail things to Via Molde AS care of (abbreviated "c/o") ABC Inkasso. In the second example, "v/" is also short for "ved" but here, depending on what the rest of the sentence says, I'd be more likely to translate it as "from the government via the city treasurer in Molde."

agree  Eivind Lilleskjaeret: BUT: This is an uncommon use of "v/" -- normally, "v/" is the equivalent of "Attn.", i.e. the address belongs to the person/entity stated above the "v/".
