I've found the following in G Helbig - J Buscha "Deutsche Grammatik":
It's name "construction with _bekommen / erhalten / kriegen_ +
Participle II [=Past Participle] (Subject in nominative = Addressee,
it's called also >>Adressatenpassive<< [=Passive of the Addressee],
>>Rezipientenpassiv<< [=Passive of the Recipient] or >>indirektesPassiv<< [=indi2ect Passive])"
