They have the details of your credit card account. That is guaranteed. This information will include your credit limit, your statement balance every month, how much you paid of that balance every month, and how many months late (hopefully zero) you were in making the payment. They will have the details of your bank account if you have an overdraft facility. It will show the amount overdrawn if any, every month, or £0 if it is in credit. They will also have details of any telecommunications accounts unless it is BT, or a pay as you go mobile.
