  8. Nat reported Viva loans/fast loans 4 u with the number 01618189036 as trustworthy number

    I went on compare the to look for a loan. Then all these txts & calls started to come through. Saying I've been pre approved. So I answered one Indian guy called "Gary" lol. & he said they could offer me 1500 over 2 years @ £50 per month. Which sounded good. Just had to transfer the 1st payment in advance of 50 and my next payment would not b until the 13th March so unfortunately I have them my sort code & acc no. But no card details. But told them I never had the money & I would do it after work. He even set up a security password for the loan. But when I was at work. I had 15 missed calls & txts from various different numbers all offering me the same deal. I got a private number call which I answered. It was African men arguing in the background then a man can on the phone (African not Indian) saying this is Gary your password is... I began to laugh & told him to f##k off. That they f##ked up this time & I heard them, he put down the phone. Then the original "Indian Gary" called back saying "arh what happened to you, you didn't make the transaction. I told him exactly what he was upto & he put down the phone!! I didn't give them any money. But I'm worried they have my account number & sort code & my details.

  14. Laura reported unknown with the number 01618189036 as Harassment calls

    I'm a student and was really struggling with money so I decided to try and take a loan out. I got harassment calls from this company so I eventually picked up and they offered me a loan of 2500 for 3 years to pay back £61 a month. I thought this was a good deal, they then told me because I ' had no credit history ' they needed to ensure I could pay back the loan properly so they told me to walk to my nearest pay point and purchase a 3v visa voucher. I did this and the indian man which went by the name of ' eric brown ' told me to read him the voucher code. I did this and he told me the money would be in my account within half hour. I told him to reassure me that it wasn't a scam because i'm a student and have no money at all, he kept calling me darling and love and saying i ' had nothing to worry about' half an hour later the money was not in my bank. I called them back and they told me the tax officer had told them I had to pay them 92 pounds so that i could get the loan. i started to realise it was a scam and they kept trying to push me into getting them another voucher so they could take more of my money. I told them i wasnt giving them it and he started swearing and shouting at me down the phone to ' shut the f*ck up you stupid white b*tch ' . So yeah, they scammed me good and proper. stay away from these disgusting vile greedy animals.

    However, why are they still being allowed to "operate" if they are so well known and easily tracked down - why have the Serious Fraud Squad not simply arrested them?

  31. Victim reported Lelo Loan (Micheal Read) with the number 01618189036 as Cost trap

    These people are pretending to be money lenders but they are ripping people off their small monies they happen to have left. They are Asian boys(Indian or Pakistan) introducing themselves with English names. Be very careful these people are con- Artists. Its really sad that these guys haven't been arrested by now.

    Apparently this is their Halifax Account Number; 11385968 and the sort Code is 110450. The name of the Account holder they Give you is Paul Walsh but that is not even the correct first name on that account its a different name that the person behind the counter wont reveal for DPA reasons which is understandable. These guys must be using someone ID to commit these crimes. "YOU CAN RUN BUT YOU CAN'T HIDE FOR LONG!" You will soon be exposed... Very soon!!!
