    My mum just got this through the post.



    Looks very dodgy to me and i said to her not to respond to it.
    the website does not come up on google and looks very generic.

    Could be legit. they apparently have a consumer credit license and a data protection license.

    Seems odd though.

    I wouldn't use the letter to wipe my arse with tbh.

    I would phone them to find out what they want tbh just wouldn't give any personal details to them.

    I had a similar thing years ago some guy was trying to trace his family

    Seems far too suspicious to me, searching the phone number it comes up on a website for what looks like an e-cigarette company.
    On top of the website they have being unfinished.

    These guys are likely debt collectors, they are actually Global Debt Recovery Ltd after a bit of digging - or at least are owned by them. They seem to operate under a bunch of different names

    Here's their director's linkedin: http://uk.linkedin.com/pub/natalie-bourner/64/973/334

    There's seemingly no connection between skycig and whoever absolute locate are, probably just got their 0800 number randomly if skycig gave it up for some reason
