Gosh Relatedtoturnips what a turnup!  I've checked your link to Treequest (UK) Ltd and it appears it is connected to a James Varrie in Jersey.  Nationwide shows treequest as the payee on their statement.  Googling James Varrie you will find more about him and his activities.   Thank you for your help.

You are welcome. Yes I noticed James Varrie to. He is one some of the documents on the companies information website. He applied for "Striking Off" in 2011. This basically means he is closing down his business.

But as you have mentioned his company name, appeared on your bank statement. Something doesn't seem right! lol.

Ask your bank to "chargeback ". The payment. And for the bank to report them to a fraud line

ScouseBoy, I read up on chargeback and mentioned it when I called the bank, however when I called the lady said it is a Visa dispute case. 
It seems the address for Treequest (UK) Ltd was in London.  Would it apply to the one in Jersey? James Varrie's Facebook appears to have been inactive since November 2015.
When and if the bank calls I'll mention the various findings, though no doubt Visa will check it out if they get many disputes.
I'll keep bumping this up to warn as many Rootschatters as possible.  Thank you all.

I'm a bit worried about the mention of xxxxx on a public forum like this, when, as Relatedtoturnips has said there is no actual proof at the moment.

Not trying to scare anyone, but our Mr Varrie seems to have fingers in many pies.

Hes mentioned in the Panama papers (Yes the dodgy Dave Cameron ones lol).

I would suggest everyone be very careful about the wording they use on this thread.
The site Familyrelatives.com is still active and can be accessed.

It does contain quite a list of free records, but whether the free records are of use to the users of this forum I do not know, they seem to be mainly things like the Overseas GRO Birth, Marriage and Death Indexes 1761-1994 and USA Birth, Death, Marriage, Divorce, Immigration, Military enlistment, POW & Casualties
See
http://www.rootschat.com/links/01ixt/

It seems, in my opinion, from what I have read on the site to hold records such as trade directories and other records sourced from books of transcribed records rather than original records but I am not totally sure about this.

Cheers
Guy
