Good afternoon, I received a withheld phone call on tues 19th April asking for my ex husband, told them he doesn't live and as never lived here, they asked if I knew where he is, I said I've not seen him for 19 years, then asked about me as this is a joint dept from 19+ years ago, I was so silly to answer their security question and give them my mobile and email address. Wednesday I received a letter from gdr trace saying that they think I'm the person there client wishes to contact, I've not phoned them as yet as this was posted on the 18th before my phone call on the 19th, obviously they are working together. It was a messy devorce which ended my house got repossessed, I've never hidden away as I still pay a monthly payment to this. They said they sent a letter in 2001 to that address and whoever lived there said I didn't live there, I know for a fact my ex would not say he owed this dept or made any contact, I would think this would be statued barred, I'm so worried at the min about all this and would love for some advice, I've seen the template letters that can be send and would this stop contact, somehow I don't think so with this company. I've looked as well on my credit file and everything is ok there. I'm waiting to still received the letter that they said on the phone call, but have not as yet, they told me I had 2 weeks to get back to them when I do get this letter, many thanks in advance I also don't want my ex's name on any letters as this one from GDR TRACE had both our names on it.
Afternoon all, Received a letter recently from GDR Trace (New Malden) with the following: Dear xx, I am instructed to contact you as I believe you may be the person our client wishes to make contact with. Out trace team have made enquiries and have received confirmation that your details have changed to the above address. You can contact us free of charge on: Email: email@example.com Freephone: 0800 xxx xxxx Or you can text us on: SMS Line xxxxx (Please note this line does not accept calls) Please contact us by either of the above methods and we will be played to verify our reasons for writing to you. Yours sincerely etc etc I have no idea what this is about; any debt I may have had were SB a few years ago. I am going to simply ignore this unless anyone thinks differently? Also, is this breaking OFT collection guidelines, do you think? All seems a bit hazy, asking ME to verify who I am; surely that should know who they are writing to? Thanks in advance for any help you can provide; you guys are simply great. Many Thanks, AG
I just received a letter in the post from GDR Trace, simply asking me to contact them as I may be the person their client is looking for. No other info is given, just a freephone number and an email address. All I have so far done is send them an email saying I can be contacted by return email. Almost immediately, I received an email from them with exactly the same wording as the letter. This made me suspicious enough to do some research on the net and what I've found is very worrying. Apparently they are a debt collection agency who hound people to pay debts which very often they don't owe, or are out of statute date. Has anyone else had dealings with these people? I have no outstanding debts, old or new and have never had any CCJs either, so obviously they have the wrong person, but none the less, I don't need a lot of hassle with people like this. Any advice please?
