It has been brought to our attention that a scam loans company called Loan4Help has been committing fraud by claiming to offer or advance “loans” to borrowers whilst pretending to be a trading company of Finance and Credit Corporation Limited. It is not. Loan4Help has absolutely no connection to Finance and Credit Corporation Limited.

It has also come to our attention that a third party has been contacting borrowers on a fraudulent basis by purporting to be Finance and Credit Corporation Limited and claiming to offer or advance “loans” to borrowers. This third party has been contacting borrowers on an unsolicited basis via the following email address: . Please note that our company Finance and Credit Corporation Limited is in no way connected with the third party and does not use or operate that email address.

These operations have been cold calling and emailing members of the public, fraudulently pretending to be or to be connected with Finance and Credit Corporation Limited, asking for upfront fees from borrowers and advancing monies in relation to purported “loans”. They have also sent documents to borrowers which fraudulently claim to contain the signature of the Managing Director of our company.

These operations have also been using the following telephone numbers to contact consumers: 0203 129 2514 and 0238 106 0723. They may also have been operating from other telephone numbers and email addresses.

Please note that Finance and Credit Corporation Limited does not cold call, send unsolicited signed “loan agreements” or ask for upfront fees. We strongly suggest that you call our Managing Director Elio Astone on 020 7722 7547 in advance of proceeding with any “loan” or if you have any further questions.

If you are contacted by Loan4Help, or any of the companies which appear to be involved in these frauds, you should also report them to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040.

Bridging LoansClear & Simple

Fincorp is one of the UK's most established and respected bridging loan companies. For more than 25 years the company has been providing 1st and 2nd charge bridging finance on residential properties in London and Southern England. Our bridging loans vary typically between £100,000 and £10 million, and we lend up to 70% value of the property secured on the property. And because you deal only with decision-makers, your bridging loan requirements are always dealt with quickly and with the minimum of fuss.

Why Fincorp for Bridging Loans?

We're a Principal Lender. Customers are able to get a decision quickly on their bridging loan without having to wait for authorisation from anyone else. And there's no back-tracking at a later date. So that means when we say yes to a loan, we mean it.

Our approach to business is summed up in two words, Clear and Simple. We believe that bridging lending is a straightforward business, all too often complicated by lenders with their lack of transparency and reliance on the small print. We work hard to make your dealings with us as clear and simple as possible.

  • 1st and 2nd Charges
  • London and South East
  • Residential properties

Brokers trust Fincorp to protect their reputation

A leading commercial brokerage has endorsed bridging lender Fincorp as the best in the business when it comes to strengthening client relationships and maintaining reputation.
Hemel Hempstead-based Charleston Financial Services specialises in commercial and bridging finance and deals directly with members of the public and intermediaries. Providing a reliable service and maintaining its first-class reputation with clients and brokers is key to the firm.
David Pooley, director, says: "The most important thing for us at Charleston is to have confidence in the lenders we deal with, particularly when it comes to bridging finance. We need to know that the decision we receive on day one is adhered to."
Unlike many specialist lenders, Fincorp is a principal lender, which ensures customers are able to get a decision immediately without having to wait for authorisation from anybody else and, once made, that decision will not change.
Charleston Financial Services discovered this first hand recently when it received an enquiry from one of its main introducers, where a client was looking for a 2nd charge bridging loan in order to consolidate business finance that he already had. He was seeking £360,000.
"We needed a swift response and we received that from Fincorp," says David. "We were able to issue terms within two hours of the initial enquiry. The main reason for choosing for Fincorp over any other lender is down to the service we receive and the fact there are no initial fees payable by the client.
"It's important for us to be able to reassure our client that the terms we are issuing to them on day one will go through to completion, so they know they're in safe hands."
Barry Scott, business development manager at Fincorp, says: "We're proud to be recommended by Charleston Financial Services. Offering a service that our clients can trust is very important to us so it is good to know that is being recognised."
Fincorp, known as the 'No-fees' bridging firm, deals primarily in London and the South East and offers residential property loans from £150,000 to £5,000,000, with no minimum or maximum period and can loan up to 70% of the property value, secured on the property.
