Cariocca Business Park, 2 Sawley Road, London, UK M40 8BB

There is no such address in London as Cariocca Business Park, 2 Sawley Road. This should read Manchester.

This company, Etelegate Limited, (of 2 Sawley Road, Manchester), continues to use a maildrop address at 29 Harley Street London W1G 9QR.

Etelegate Limited of Cariocca Business Park, 2 Sawley Road, Manchester, M40 8BB is a dissolved company and has never submitted any annual filings since incorporation date – namely, it is a dead parrot company. The UK company number is 05121625.

The domain, etelegate.com current lists this dissolved company, Etelegate Limited as it’s mailing contact and uses the maildrop address 29 Harley Street London W1G 9QR.

The above obviously raises some question over who exactly “Etelegate” is and what legal entity and jurisdiction they purport to operate under.

This “company” does not fall within UK law as may be suggested by the addresses above and it is a criminal offense within the UK to trade or use the name of a dissolved or liquidated company.
