Scamming under the name “Liverpool Embassy”?

UPDATE: I’ve had a followup email from them that suggests it’s legit, and we were just mis-targetted (I’d guess they’re using a call-list they got from somewhere that’s not great on its filtering).

Strange email exchange this morning:

Subject: contact [sic – no capitalization, no sentence]

Could you kindly supply me with your Business address and telephone number for the purpose of our database please?

Kind Regards,

Elisa

What? Why? Who are you? Why do you want our phone number?

And, most bizarrely, why are you asking for info that’s – by law – published for free on the Companies House website?

I smell something fishy(ing attempt)…

I sent a couple of followup emails: “what database?”, we’ve never heard of you, what’s this for?, etc.

Responses were all dodging the question, and then she gave up with:

Ok thanks for your help Adam , sorry for any inconvenience caused.

So, yeah. Probably a scam. If you get an emails from “liverpoolvision.co.uk”, I suggest you trash them.

(and if they’re a bona fide outfit, then … wow. They really don’t use email much, do they?)
