    Hi, I've noticed a credit check by the above company on my experian credit file but I don't recognise who and why this may be!

    Anyone shed any light?

    spending their money to see if you're worth chasing for business.

    could be a company pension or share dealing service if you have either
    Otherwise i would complete a dispute with the credit agency to get some more info

    I don't recall applying for anything... The search has been performed in the past month!

    I used to have pet insurance with Axa, which they then dropped out of, selling the business to Close Brothers. I got a letter saying I had to confirm if I wanted to do this switch ... which I didn't, but then DD payments started coming out of my account for Close Brothers. Turns out they'd called HBSC and managed to persuade them to transfer my Axa DD to them. So in my experience, they're a legit business, but total scum.

    On a slightly unpleasant note it's not impossible to be part of an identity theft. Send an email to them asking why they have searched your file.

    ​I think I will do today and update

    any kind of insurance or premium you pay monthly or in installments? If it's a new search then it'll be something recent. I pay business insurance via them, they basically fund the insurer and then charge me (the customer) for the credit.

    ​I do have some business insurance (landlord) but it was only renewal and not a new policy,...
