If you have not actually be provided a guarantor document to sign, and have not signed any such agreement, then you are not the guarantor.
I would advice that you reply to the person, inform them that you only provided you details for a credit check, but at no time did they send you or complete and sign a guarantor agreement and therefore you are not liable.
They need to chase the actual tenant.
NO, you gave your detail for them to carry enquiries, they should have then informed you everything was clear and have you sign a guarantor contract.
Can I assist or clarify anything further?
Then as already advised above, you have not completed and signed as a guarantor, you are not liable. I did explain this before and that you should reply to them and advice them of that.
