Fraud Watch

Please note

No one from Smart Loans UK or any financial partner relations, including lenders, will ever contact you and request you to send them money or buy any products from them prior to receiving your loan funds.

At Smart Loans UK we will do everything that we can to make sure that your information and privacy is safe and secure. We take the privacy of our applicants seriously and have created this guide to advise you on what to do in the event of becoming victim to fraud.

Fraud can sometimes be very difficult to spot, some fraudsters take the name of genuine companies and pose as them. These fraudsters will then make cold calls to their victims promising loan details that don't really exsist. Smart Loans UK offer a range of loans. The fraudsters will then invite the victim to part with the cash through voucher schemes like UKASH VOUCHERS and promising that a loan will certainly follow. Please be well aware of these types of scams.

The people that run these scams are skilled and experienced at persuading their targets to part with their money. If you think you have been a victim of a scam or have paid any money to someone you think is a fraudsters there are some very helpful steps you can take to protect yourself.
