Just pulled my credit file from Call Credit, and there are 3 registered searches, 1st one states "search organisation, comparision site(HDD), search purpose, administration review" .

2nd one states "search organisation GB Group Plc (ID), search purpose, money laundering. 3rd one states "search organisation HBOS (ML), search purpose, money laundering.

 

WHAT SHOULD I DO???????????????????????????????

 

I know that the only money laundering I have done is washed the odd £5 note in huggy41's jeans pockets.

 

I am on the verge of ringing the police and inviting them to inspect my finances.

 

Really wish I had not looked at my file now.

 

Please Help!

I know that transfers from a bank account to prepaid credit cards can be flagged as money laundering.

 

It is a known method used by criminals. I once tried to transfer less than £20 from a bank account to a prepaid credit card. It got flagged as money laundering then my internet banking was frozen until I called their customer services to answer security questions. Then I was able to use internet banking again. All for the sake of less than £20, for pity sake.

going to query mine as I have not bought any foreign currency recently, nor do I have a pre-paid credit card. I did switch banks back in January and one of the searches is from HBOS so that makes sense I suppose. The other money laundering search is from a company called GB Group Plc.

 

Does anybody know how I go about getting this off my file?

It is a harmless search required by law when opening a new bank/building society account

and other financial accounts.

I have just had one when changing a charities account to a new bank.

Don't worry.

i have the same on mine....actually made me smile when i saw it.... wasn't worried though as i presumed money laundering is more prevalent so can be put down as a reason to credit check

 

 

....should i be worried having that on there!!????[/quote

 

not 2 sure if its sumin to worry about but it has most likely come from where u have tryed using your card more than once and been declined.. i.e gambling sites etc. i had the same exact problem with paddy power, my card declined about four times next thing i know they have submitted this crap (money laundry) i was like wtf. i tred getting them off but no joy. so remeber if you play on these site avoid doing a declined trasaction more than once as you will get more on your file.
