I don’t think I have debt, why am I being contacted?

The first piece of advice would be to get back in touch with UKSL. When you contact this company, ask them for some proof of your debt they are collecting to ensure it is real. You can do this by sending a ‘Prove The Debt’ letter. They are obliged to send you proof of your debt, if they do not, you will not have to pay a penny to them.

After they have sent you proof, go through your own letters they have sent to ensure there are no slip-ups of differences between the proof.

Keeping a note of all the phone calls and letters that you receive from this agency is advised, simply because, if UKSL decides they would like to take the matter to court you have hard evidence. You should also note down every name you speak to regarding the situation, this evidence can state that you have been active in the responses for this unpaid debt.

Questions about payment.

Should I pay this company?

Have you asked for proof and been assured that this unpaid debt is yours? If you answered yes then you definitely should. The sooner you pay the quicker the harassing phone calls will end!

If you have the money in the full amount, paying now would be a brilliant option.

What if I don’t have the money?

If you are struggling to pay the full amount, get in touch as swiftly as possible with UKSL. Getting in touch with UK Search Limited can help with your payment methods as they can set up a repayment scheme, allowing you to pay monthly until the full payment has been paid off.
