This email has been scanned for spam and malware by The Email Laundry.

 

I realised afterwards this may not have been the best thing to do. I did not confirm if I was or was not the contact mentioned, but I suppose in a way I've confirmed the address is still active. I cannot think what it would be regarding but they have a lot of negative reviews online with people accusing them of chasing non existent or very old debts.

 

I was wondering if anyone had experience with them or thought they were legitimate? Or if this is just a phishing exercise. I don't know where they got my email address from.

Thank you, good to know! Wow their site doesn't even work.

It's sad to see people have called them and now they have their phone number and are endlessly harassing them. They won't be getting mine, and I hope other people googling them find this forum.

have you found out what the debt is?

 

mostly uk search of late work with Shulmans LLP  on behalf of old util companies that you have an outstanding debt with from an old property?
have you one and moved in the last 6yrs>?

 

sadly we've seen back door CCJ's in some of these cases so it might be better to investigate this a bit?

I honestly don't know because they never said, and I don't want to call them and give them any info about me or my number.

 

The only thing I can think is that a utility company very recently went bust, and seemed to think they supplied me when they don't.

In fact I am currently dealing with them switching me to a different supplier against my wishes, because I'm with a totally different supplier and they had no right to do that.

 

They had been sending letters to me for about a year and I'd been calling them and telling them they don't supply me which they agreed, and promised to remove me.

 

However evidently they didn't as I've been "force-switched" to the takeover supplier for them despite being nothing to do with it all....trying to get my ACTUAL supplier to step in and object, as I spent all morning on the phone to the takeover supplier and all they could do was tell me to wait 5 working days for a callback.


It'd be interesting to see what debt they are trying to claim being that they never supplied me, and have now gone bust.

Unless it's something else, but I can't think of anything else.

It would help if they used the correct domain in their email auto response. It isn't a co.uk but a .com domain.

I get my credit score regularly,

have checked and theres nothing on there, and no searches other than ones for insurance quotes etc.

 

I can't think of anything I would owe money on, I've never been a non-payer on anything.

The only thing I can think of is that energy company who kept messing up, but there's no debt there, they even admitted this to me. They just seemed to think they were supplying my property when they werent and couldn't seem to sort it out. I'm with a completely different supplier who I pay by direct debit.

 

And surely I'd know about something like this? I'd have received letters or had some correspondence from the company before any alleged debt had been (presumably) sold off to this uk search ltd, who seems to have my name and email, and want me to confirm all sorts of senstivie personal information back to them before they'll tell me what it's about.

uksearch don't buy debt 

only chase for clients.

 

if your credit file is clean

then you've nothing to worry about

could even be a miss trace.

this is why they are cagey about what it is all about, they have sparse secondhand info and hope that you help them or at least give them enough info to allow them to chage their records and make it look like you are the debtor.

yes, some do this.
