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.

Business as usual for Fincorp

Short-term bridging lender Fincorp has revealed plans to hire a new sales director to start in January 2016 and confirmed it is “business as usual” at the lender. The announcement comes after news that directors Nigel Alexander and Matthew Anderson will leave Fincorp at the end of the year.

Ronnie Natas, founding director of Fincorp, said he was sorry to see the pair go after more than a decade working together but that he wished them the best of luck for the future.
Ronnie said: “While this is an ending of sorts for Fincorp I am pleased to say it’s also the beginning of a new phase for us. We have significant funding and are very much in business – we’re also close to announcing our new sales director who will work with our existing team to help serve brokers looking for reliable bridging finance.”

Ronnie added that the lender would be taking a new approach in 2016 with a focus on choice for brokers. Earlier this year Fincorp introduced a new product available with fees to sit alongside its traditional no fee deals. Both lines are available on residential, heavy or light refurb projects, auction finance and minor development facilities.

Ronnie added: “Offering brokers the chance to choose a fee or no fee deal makes sense – it’s the approach offered in the mainstream market and can make a big difference to the cost of the loan depending on its length. We have always prided ourselves on our clear and simple approach to pricing and that’s not about to change – we just want to add flexibility into the equation for our intermediary partners.”

Fincorp has been offering bridging finance to property developers and professionals for the past 26 years. Ronnie said: “Throughout that time we have remained reliable and firm in our funding promises. We value our relationships with brokers highly and can reassure them that it’s definitely business as usual at Fincorp.”
