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 lender Fincorp has hired Gary Playle as business development manager in a drive to strengthen its relationships with brokers in London and the South East.
Playle has nearly 25 years experience working with mortgage brokers in the commercial and business lending markets.
He was London and South East regional business banking manager at Santander for 14 years until last year and before that spent 10 years in business and corporate lending with the Co-operative Bank managing several regional societies.
He spent four years in asset finance at Chartered Trust, part of Standard Chartered Bank, and 10 years at Midland Bank, three of which were in the credit department.
Playle says: "There is so much good business to be done in the bridging sector at the moment and I'm looking forward to speaking to brokers about the opportunity that Fincorp can offer them."
"We're at a time when giving your clients the best service possible means thinking outside the box to find products that will help them with their needs. And I'm particularly pleased to be able to be on board at Fincorp because its whole ethos chimes with the way I believe business should be done with the client in mind: they keep it clear and simple."
Fincorp director Nigel Alexander adds: "Gary has a track record of delivering excellent service for a long list of respected banking firms. We have no doubt he'll be a great support to Fincorp and we are glad to have him on board."
