    I would guess BW are the debt collector/pseudo-solicitor and JCI are the actual owners.

    Debts are bought and sold in bulk, thousands of accounts at a time, these debt purchasing companies, in this case JCI, use pseudo collectors/solicitors, such as BW to collect them on their behalf.

    Try not to complicate the issue, if BW are writing to you, then they are the ones you send the "provit letter" to.
