I have received a trace letter from a company called Connex


 Share

Recommended Posts

I received a letter in the post today, Sept 15th from a company called Connex. The letter says; "We have been asked to locate an individual and we think you may have some information that could assist us".

The letter is addressed to me (name and address). Can't find any info on Google about the company which is strange. I noticed in the top right hand corner of the letter it says ###/G/global/date/time. I don't have any debts. It says to contact them either by phone or email. Should I reply to them?

Thanks for the advice, but out of curiosity I think I will email them. 

If they reply to my email with my correct name and address, what should I do? I haven't had any debt, loans, credit cards or finance since my bankruptcy in over 10 years ago, from which I was released from a year later,  so if there is any debt anywhere it must be passed its sell by date surely? My worry is that this could be a scam and make up some debt that doesn't exist. 

Hope you can advise.

Ignore.

 

If you had a debt you owed, which was still enforceable they would send you the information including name of the original company you owed money to, plus the amount owed.

 

Once you have the name of the original company a debt is allegedly owed to, you contact the original company asking for details.

 

Don't respond to a general chaser letter from a debt collection agency.

We could do with some help from you.

Well it all goes back to that letter from Connex (GDR) I got the other day. I'm trying to figure out what on earth the debt could be, as since my bankruptcy in 2011 I haven't had any credit, loans, finance etc, my credit score is good and clear, no arrears and I pay everything upfront.

 

So any debt they are chasing me for has either been wiped by my bankruptcy or is statute barred. The only debt that I know of (which applies to me) which isn't covered by bankruptcy is TV License debt and that's why I wondered if it fell under the statute barred umbrella. 

 

I didn't get a bill or any letters demanding money back in 2011 from TV License. The property had been rented out and the tenant had left without me knowing, so for 5 months the house was empty with no tv license registered to the property and I didn't notify TV Licensing about this.

So have you ever been taken to Magistrates Court by TV licencing ?

 

What happens in regard to an address without a TV licence, is that TV licencing keep writing to the address warning about the address not being covered by a licence.  Eventualy a local licence enforcement officer visits the address to check to see if anyone at the address is watching live TV.  If someone is caught doing so,  they are then subject to Magistrates Court hearing where they would be fined.

 

Please stop worrying about what it might be.  It could relate to a debt that is still showing  by mistake, even though covered by bankruptcy.   Or it might not be a debt that relates to you at all.

If the house was empty for 5 months presumably no-one was watching TV there. An empty house does not need a TV licence if the TV set is not in use. And you don't have a legal obligation to advise TVL that a house is empty.

 

So apart from the other points already mentioned about TVL you weren't committing a TV licence offence anyway!
