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.

Fincorp praised for its fast and fuss-free 2nd charge lending

Bridging lender Fincorp has been endorsed as a leading 2nd charge lender by successful brokerage Lifetime Mortgages and Finance Ltd. Fincorp, which deals primarily in London and the South East, was able to assist LMF recently in helping a client who was struggling to complete on a commercial transaction due to delays involving their mainstream lender.
2nd charge bridging finance was able to fill the gap.
The client was looking for finance in region of £600,000 secured by way of a 2nd charge loan on their main residence. Fincorp was able to accommodate this and the client was able to complete in just 12 days.
Lifetime Mortgages and Finance's client is not alone. Lenders have squeezed their criteria so tight that only the bare minimum of businesses have managed to obtain funding at a time when small businesses need finance more than ever.
Fincorp is proud, therefore, to receive endorsement from LMF.
Mike Hoare, founder and director of Lifetime Mortgages and Finance, says: "We like dealing with Fincorp because they're very transparent in their approach. There's no fee structure and the paperwork is simple to deal with, as there are no application forms; it's all done by email. From a financial intermediary's point of view, that provides a simple process when making an application.
"Start to finish took just 12 days, from submitting the application to getting the funds in the hands of the solicitor. We always obtain feedback from customers and they were very pleased with the speed and the overall process. It was simple from their point of view as well as ours so we recommend Fincorp to anyone."
Matthew Anderson, director of Fincorp, says: "In the current climate it is successful businesses who need the finance, it is these businesses who have been able to continue trading. Without access to credit their attempts at maintaining and growing their businesses are being hindered."
Fincorp offers 2nd charge bridging loans at 60% of the value of a property, less what is outstanding on the 1st charge.
