Had a letter earlier this week from: Absolute Locate

Dear Mr x

We require your assistance to verify information on behalf of a client. This is part of an investigation we are currently conducting

Please contact ect ect

 

No, I have not responded, and don't intend too.

 

Letter states this registered office is for a Nat Bourner Huddersfeild HD2 1GN

CCL 579084 DPLN ZA019311

 

Having done some homework and looking on this group, they are not who they say they are

 

First off, the CCL 579084 is incorrect,

Consumer credit number 579084 is for a Natalie Alice Bunyer not Nat Bourner as stated in this letter

(She has married, but not changed the name) She also resides in Surrey not Huddersfeild

 

this information is therefore falsely registered and constitutes either fraud and or deception.

 

these people are in fact: Global Debt Recovery Limited

Milbourne House 66-70 Coombe Rd New Malden, Greater London KT3 4QW

 

I am assuming that their client will be: FV-1 INC of 25 CABOT SQUARE, CANARY WHARF, LONDON E14 4QA

 

if you take a look here at:

mylawer co uk - restriction of debt collectors

 

They have already broken the following guidelines

 

1 Those contacting debtors not making clear who they are, who they work for, what their role is, what the purpose of the contact is

2 Not informing the debtor when their case has been passed on to a different debt collector

3 Passing on debtor details to debt management companies without the debtors informed prior consent

i.e FV-1 INC will have passed any alleged debt onto Absolute Locate, who in turn will then pass that onto Global Debt Recovery Limited and all without my informed prior consent, add to that Absolute Locate is just a dummy office which IMO amounts to deception.

 

Adding to this, they would’ve already broken the Data Protection Act by passing my details on.

 

I will post more when I receive their first letter.

 

 

But as you can see from my tone,

I am not going to be messed with by idiots,

I will be going straight for the jugular ;)

 

Ps. If (big IF) there is a debt, if would’ve to be more than 8 years old or more, so Statue Barred.

Thank you dx100uk

 

These will do nicely

 

(2) In such cases, a firm should in no way, either by act or omission, mislead a customer as to the enforceability of the agreement.

(3) In particular, a firm should not in such cases either threaten court action or other enforcement of the debt or imply that the debt is enforceable when it is not.

(4) The firm should, in any communication or request for payment in such cases, make clear to the customer that although the debt remains outstanding it is unenforceable.

I've had dealings with muppets like this before, from a private parking company, when they stuck a 'Penalty Notice' on my car, and expected me to pay, and then passed me onto their debt collectors

They got very short thrift ;)

I have all the names, personal addresses, with pictures of houses and FB profiles for those at Global Debt Recovery

I am after all, hence the name: InfoGeek

I would suggest that you forward copies of all your "evidence" to the FCA, label it " For Information" not a complaint.

 

 

The evidence will be noted and as we have seen recently the FCA is acting pro actively on information received.

Oh yes BRIGADIER2JCS I shall most definitively be keeping any and all copies of anything they send, and forward it onto where needed

Think I'm going to have a little fun with this one first though, and supply them with all the rope they need to hang themselves

I like playing games, keeps the brainbox active ;)

Assignment merry-go-round so they all claim tax back on the same income and pass on the assets if the brown stuff strikes the air conditioning system.

The directors also play the merry-go-round, as they seem to resign, and are then reinstated all on the same day

 

I'm a little concerned, in that a DCA has a site to reclaim PPI is this even ethical?

Is it possible for them to claim on old forgotten loans/debts ect without a claimant ?

Email sent to the FCA along with attached scanned file of Absolute's phishing letter (my details blanked out)

Also highlighted that their office is just a virtual office and just a front for Global

And that the Consumer credit number is using the wrong name, as it should be Natalie Bourner and not Natalie Buyner, who has had plenty of time to change it, since she was married back in 2009

A little remiss there methinks

 

Let's see if FCA respond ;)

Much the same as the OFT they do not comment on individual " complaints" but will acknowledge and record information for use when reviewing the " interim permissions " under which DCAs are currently licenced.

Maybe people should add to the complaint to the FCA the following statement

 

For the sake of clarity there should be ONE consumer licence per trading name

 

That might stop the proliferation of companies using Global's licence no.

I've waited over a month since the first phishing letter from Absolute Locate

 

Is this the best they can come up with? I was hoping for a bit of fun, but this is boring.

 

Another phishing letter, but this time from The Winged Messenger

Addressed to 'The Current Occupier

That was a quick response to my email from the FCA

They have clearly taken note of my previous email as well.

 

Dear Pete

 

Thank you for your email earlier today, in response to my email dated 10 October 2014.

 

I can confirm that as with your previous email, this email will be passed to the relevant area within the FCA. As outlined, legal restrictions prevent us from disclosing details of any potential investigation to take place. However, these comments will be noted accordingly.

 

I trust this email is of assistance.

Yours sincerely

 

I did also point out the many different names these people use, and funny how they use the same CLN

I've had two phising letters, one for Sept 2014 from absolute direct, and one in Oct 2014 from the winged messenger, of course, these are just two of the many names this company uses, they have many others. I have not responded to either, there's just no need.

First off, if, and a BIG IF, I have any debts from the past, they would be well over 10 years old, and therefore SB

 

Yesterday my wife recieved a so-called letter from sainsburys bank (see attached doc)

asking for arrears of a paltry sum (less than £10) so clearly a con just to get her to call

The fools dont know, that she has never had a sainsburys account, so clearly a phising trip to get her to provide and confirm my details

 

At the bottom of the letter you will see:

 

H Singh - director collections & recoveries

If you do a google search, the first thing that comes up, is the same type of letter used by robinson way to other people

 

IMO, this is clearly fraud and or deception, added to that, is that it would appear that 'the winged messenger' has passed/sold on any old debt to robinson way, which is clearly another breach of practice, as they did not inform me beforehand (how could they, I've never responded or confirm my details)

 

I can't confirm that this is robinson way, as no there will be no response to this latest letter

 

So what's the next step, as this clearly needs to be acted upon, and taken way up the ladder, and get these people reported

Send it to the FCA :)

 

*IF* it is nothing to do with sainsburys bank, surely they should know that someone is attempting to get money in their name.

I received a letter from GDR trace this morning & found this thread as a result.

 

I have made no attempt to contact them,

but my letter is identical to the ones listed above,

with no mention of them being involved in debt recovery.

 

I phoned the FCA & GDR Trace have a lapsed registration, so should not now be involved in debt recovery work.

 

And this despite GDR saying they work closely with the FCA on their website.

 

Their website also prominently features the ICO (Information Commissioners) logo &

 

 

on the FCA's advice I contacted the ICO to check if they were using the logo legally & they were not.

 

 

They are still registered with the ICO, but are not using the logo legally.

 

So this has been passed onto the ICO's relevant department.

 

The ICO has also requested I sent them details of the letter I received

& my conversation with the FCA so they can look at if GDR is in breech of data law in the way they operate.

Plonkers !!

My first letter was back in Oct 2014 from absolute locate

Then a second about 4 months later from Global debt recovery

Now, 5 Sept 2015 have just recieved yet another letter addressed to me from GDR Trace

 

"I am instructed to contact you as I beleive you may be the person out client wished to make contact with. Out trace team have made enquiries and have advised that your details have changed to the above address

Please contact us by either phone or text ect, and we will be pleased to verify our reasons for writing to you"

 

As usual no mention of WHY

Love this bit "we will be pleased to verify our reasons for writing to you"

 

On your bike sunshine ;)

 

Same people, with a new name, idiots

 

Oh well, filed under "ignore"
