I've sought advice regarding my situation of the years, and have more than appreciated the guidance given.

 

I left the UK eleven years ago, I had some debts when I left and did manage to service them for a while, after a while the contstant harrasment and lack of empathy from various creditors just got too much for me and I made the decision, rightly or wrongly, to stop paying, whilst I wasn't proud of my actions the relief was wonderful, and I was able to rebuild my life.

 

Whilst I gave the creditors my overseas address, to prevent a backdoor CCJ in the UK, the letters stopped arriving, debts started to become SB'd, with the final one being SB'd a tad over two years ago.

 

Today I received a letter from an outfit called "Search Squad'', normal old baloney "We've been appointed to trace a person and we need your help with our search", they go onto say "please call, visit our website or email us and we will clarify why we have contacted you".

 

I've no intention of doing either, but I wondered if anyone knows if they normally act for any company in particular?

 

I'm moving home again shortly and it wasn't my intention to write to old creditors, given that all debts became SB'd between two and five years ago.

 

Thanks in advance.

Have you checked Trustonline to see whether there are any CCJ's registered at previous UK address ?

 

According to their website, Search Squad also deal with serving statutory demands.

 

 

Might be worth ruling out that there are no CCJ's that are still enforceable. If a creditor got a CCJ within the last 6 years, then they might be trying to enforce it.


We could do with some help from you.

In my recent past, I have had a search letter addressed to the 'homeowner'. I did nothing to assist them at all and I recommend you do so too. One thing the letter is good for is if you tear it into strips wide enough to wipe with :!:


If you are asked to deal with any matter via private message, PLEASE report it.

Everything I say is opinion only. If you are unsure on any comment made, you should see a qualified solicitor

Id carry on with life and ignore. You are not in the UK? Anything you know about is statute barred? Move on.

 

Debt chasers still attempt to go after statute barred debt in the faint hope that people will cough up.

Thanks for the views, on balance I think I'll not bother responding.

 

I did check Trustonline a while after everything became SB'd, nothing was listed at all, all my creditors have corresponded with me here in SE Asia.

 

As for matrimonial surveillance, sadly I have nothing to worry about there :sad:

 

Thanks again for the responses

Did you ever hear any further from search squad?

 

I have received a letter from them too and can’t find anything about them online?

No, but it’s only been a couple of weeks.

 

I googled their website.

As a matter of interest could a SD be served in SE Asia?

 

Am I correct in thinking that in any case a SD couldn’t/shouldn’t be served on a debt that’s SB?

I have done the same but it is pretty vague. Not sure if it is a “fake” company or something to be worried about

There’s normally at least trustpilot reviews for debt collection agencies that have that level of authority.

 

However with this company there is nothing

I don't think the SD is relevant and am not sure they would go to the expense of serving any SD via a local authorised person.

 

Do you own any UK assets such as a house ?

No, I have no assets in the UK, though I do receive a UK pension which is paid offshore.

I was contacted by these people by letter. I rang them and they were asking about an address I lived at.... 19 years ago. 19 years?? I was going through a divorce and may have accrued a debt. I cannot be sure. What do I do? Maybe I have inherited some money lol. Statue Barred will apply anyway if it is for a debt surely.

The postcode for returns on the letter is UNIT 2, HD2 1GN. Put this is Google and it brings up similar businesses with different names. Plenty of info on the similar ones.
