Please be warned about a current scam that is circulating by fraudsters pretending to be from iCashAdvance.co.uk
At iCashAdvance, we never make any sales calls, and we never charge a fee for our no obligation credit broking service.
The scam circulating is from a phone call by a non-UK sounding accent using usually a 0330 number, pretending a loan has been approved. They then ask for a pre-payment up-front, and when queried, put pressure on the unsuspecting victim, by mentioning being "blacklisted" by lenders, and warn that if they don't pay, they won't be able to obtain credit in the future. They are liable to become quite aggressive, should this be queried.
We have also been made aware of a similar scam via email, whereby a fictitious "loan agreement" is sent out, and again, funds are requested up-front for the loan.
Upon paying this illegal fee, the victim is told the loan will transfer shortly, which it never does.
Please never pay anything up-front for a loan, as there is no legitimate reason for this. Please hang up all such calls, and report to Action Fraud.
Our advice on how to deal with such scams:
Please remember, that without a full application, no lender can claim to have a loan ready for you, and cannot approve a loan without a full application.
iCashAdvance.co.uk is a Financial Conduct Authority licensed credit broker, and not a lender, so any communication claiming to have a loan approved by iCashAdvance.co.uk is a scam.
