I am having great difficulties at the moment which are causing me so much distress.


It became apparent in a letter written to the CSA last September that an ex had accessed my credit file. Earlier that year on a family court my exes barrister said in court that they know all about me using an alias. I thought this was so bizarre as I had never done so. As I won the case I did not pursue it any further. In the September when he stated in his letter to the CSA that I believe he did not think they would share with me sensitive information from my credit file.


I then requested a copy of my credit file from Call Credit. They were actually very helpful. On my credit file my mothers maiden name had been listed as a alias. I have never ever used any mother names so can only think this was a recording error.


In the report there was a search to my credit file that I did not recognise. It was by a firm called N2 Check which is a company owned by Dunn and Bradstreet. I communicated with N2 to be told that the search was done by Call credit their consumer credit provider . Call credit said that N2 would have that data not then, call Credit said that n2 would have it not them.


I made a complaint to the ICO in

November 2012. I wrote to Dunn and Bradstreet to tell them that I was taking action. In March 2013 I received an email from Call Credit telling me that N2 had just informed them that the search was done by a private investigation agency called Hermes Forensic Solutions. I emailed Hermes who did get back to me reasonably quickly to tell me that it was not them that did the search but another company called 1000words. I emailed 1000words and the worker admitted that he had done the search and he was aware that I had not given my consent. Hermes did explain to me that 1000words was a sub contractor to Hermea. They went on to explain that they allowed their sub contractor to do some private work using their n2 account. 1000words refused to name the third party. It was so frustrating knowing that my personal data was being given to third parties. Eventually hermes agreed to intervene and told me who 1000words were providing services for. I could not believe it was yet another private investigation company. I emailed this company and they are insisting that I will have to wait the statutory 40 days before they would reply to my subject access request if they considered it appropriate.


The only way you can do a consumer credit search is with the data subjects request or a court order. Neither of these applied so it must of been a fraudulent search. . 1000words did tell me that they had apologised to N2 back in October for providing a consumer credit search without consent. It is so frustrating all these lies and cover ups. Passing the buck between agencies.



The last agency insisting the 40 days statutory wait before they may or may not disclose who paid them to conduct a search on me are called Neil

Casey Investigations. The whole thing has been an ordeal. My ex has used the data he received to intimidate me.


I hate all this cover up . Why is it so hard to be told who has paid for an unauthorised credit search to be done without consent or a court order.


I have referred the matter to the ICO and am waiting for an enforcement officer to be allocated this case.


Can anyone offer me any advice. The Neil Casey Investigations tell me that they are only required to tell me what information they have stored on me but are not required to tell me who they have passed it onto .


Can somebody advise or have any knowledge about this .


Thanks you
