Their web site explains what they do:
Companies House's function is to register companies based in the UK and make that data available to verify those companies legitimacy.
The registrations can be performed through third party companies set up on the internet.
The problem is that scammers are now registering fake companies through those third party firms.
This opens the doors to all kinds of scams on the internet.
Sites like aa419.org rely on legitimate records to verify the legal existance of companies claiming to me registered with Companies House in order to get fraud sites closed down quickly.
Scammers quite frequently claim that on their fake sites.
Verification of this claim can be made through a legitimate third party.
Inquiries for this data must be from valid law enforcement agencies only.
