Hi all,

 

I have received a letter today from the company above and note with interest the thread posted in December last year by Jsmyth1975.

 

My credit history is clear (I checked it only last month ) and although I've had CCJs in the past (1999), these are satisfied. In recent years I've had a few debt collection companies trying to get me to pay up for debts in the early 90's (lots of phone calls and letters etc). Obviously, I told them to take a running jump and sent letters referring to the Statute of Limitations, eventually they get round to replying that they're not going to do anything and I'll not hear from them again.

 

These guys are obviously a cheap operation; their website is very simple. The domain name was registered on 30-Aug-2013:

 

Domain Name: ABSOLUTELOCATE.COM

Registrar: ENOM, INC.

Whois Server: whois.enom.com

Name Server: NS1.XSSL.NET

Expiration Date: 30-aug-2014

 

Based on the ICO information about them, they seem to masquerade as a number of different companies.

 

My guess is that this company has a long list of debtors that they've bought from some other company (or they already had the list and are trying to dupe people who've they've bothered in the past under a different company name) and are essentially trawling through the list in the hope that people will reply. Thankfully they don't have my phone number.

 

I'm going to ignore them and I suspect I'll not hear from them again, but if I do I'll have to waste time sending them a Statute of Limitations letter.

 

I'd be interested to hear other peoples' experiences of dealing with this company.

 

Thanks.

Apparently the company is owned by

Natalie Alice Bunyer and she set up in 2005 and added the new names as noted above. Whether the spelling of the name was a deliberate mistake as the name of the director at Global is Natalie Alice Bourner.

 

Not sure whether she will use the other names:

Absolute Locate

London Investigates

Sherlock Investigates

Sherlock Locks

Thames Valley Search
