I was on the TPS Corporate site earlier today to see who they allow access to their lists.

 

One of the Companies is Tracesmart Ltd, Tracesmart offer many services but one is a tracing service for debtors.

They also offer a service called “TracelQ”, this allows DCA's to log into their systems and trace debtors.

 

So you register with the TPS giving them your private home phone number with address to stop telepests, TPS then allow a debt tracing Company (Tracesmart) to access this information, who then download & store all of your personal details, Tracesmart then allow DCA's to access their systems (for a fee) which they call “TracelQ” with your TPS registered private phone number & address included within their search for debtors.

 

Although the TPS does not ask for your name, it does ask for your Post Code & House Number/Name while registering new telephone numbers.

A DCA can cross reference a few other traces & match your name, address & TPS Registered Ex-Directory phone number etc.

NEVER telephone a DCA

If a DCA rings you, refuse to go through the security questions & hang up!

Not saying it is a waste of time, their are a lot of legitimate Companies on their that abide by the rules and otherwise would be ringing offering loads of rubbish.

 

Just the one rogue element that has slipped through and no doubt are fully utilising the database for not what it is intended for.

Another one to add to the list then!

 

Just the same as Royal Mail, when you use their 'redirect' service, they allow CRA's and in turn DCA's to see that you have moved address and more importantly exactly where too!

 

I di hava an excellent piece on it bookmarked but three or four computers later it has been lost.

Just to say that if you use RM's redirect service, DCA's will still keep tabs on you.

Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!
