Help and guidance
We want to make sure that managing your finances is as straight-forward as possible. That’s why we have written some guides to help you both every day or when things aren’t going quite as you’d planned.
Are you worried about being pressured into taking out a loan, due either to fraud or financial abuse?
Fraud scams can include you being asked to take out loans for investment opportunities or on behalf of someone else.
UK Finance and Government advice on how to protect yourself from fraud is available on the Take Five website.
Or if you’re being coerced or manipulated to take out a loan or any other form of abuse, you can get impartial advice from MoneyHelper.
Remember, only apply for a loan for your own use. You’re liable for any loan taken out in your name, even if you transfer the money to another person.
Investing or trading in cryptocurrencies or other high risk investments can lead to you losing some or all of your money.
Our Personal Loans are not permitted for the purpose of investing or trading in cryptocurrencies or other high risk investments. This is primarily because the value of cryptocurrencies or stocks and shares can fluctuate wildly and in many cases customers lose some or all of their money.
Additionally, the market for crypto-currency doesn’t shut down like the regular stock market. Access to this market 24/7 means that people already struggling with compulsions like gambling, or others who may already be vulnerable, could find themselves in situations that may negatively impact other areas of their lives.
If you are struggling with a gambling or trading compulsion, please visit GamCare. GamCare is the leading UK provider of free information, advice and support for anyone harmed by gambling.
