Never be scammed again!

*We will only ever send you emails about a new scam, and will never share your email address with anyone else.

Phone Scams

Loan scammers may cold-call you or may send you unsolicited emails. In most instances, they will impersonate a legitimate company in order for the scam to seem more realistic.

Warning signs of loan scams on the phone:

  • The caller has a thick foreign accent
  • The caller becomes aggressive, rude or threatening
  • The scammer asks for an advance payment or fee to process or transfer the loan.
  • The scammer will ask you to loan money onto a prepaid card, purchase money orders, or require you to send funds via Western Union or MoneyGram.

If you are suspicious, do not go ahead with the call! Say you will call back, and look up the real number for that lender online. If you have caller ID, enter the number they called you from on this phone number checker to see if anyone has reported it as a scam.

Website Scams

When you go onto a lender's website, how can you know if it is a scam?

Warning signs of loan scams online:

  • the website is badly designed and full of mistakes
  • there isn't much contact information
  • there is no FCA registration number.
  • you have to pay a fee before receiving any money

However, sometimes a website will look the same as a real one. Scammers sometimes set up clone websites that are an exact copy of an actual lender's site, often with only minute differences in the URL and contact details. It can be nearly impossible to discover that it's a fake.

That's why we recommend checking this fraud centre every time you want to take out a loan, as we will list every case of a cloned loan company that we hear of. You can also sign up to receive email alerts about every new loan scam we hear about. Bookmark this page now for easy reference and empower yourself to avoid becoming a victim of these cloning scams.
