Not sure if this is the right forum for this but they were offering a Payday Loan so I have put it here.

 

Got a phone call from an unknown number on my mobile today, a foreign gentlemen telling me he was phoning from Fast Cash about the £2000 loan I had applied and been approved for. I had done no such thing. He knew my name and that I lived in Glasgow.

 

When I said I hadn't applied for a loan and didn't want it, he started to tell me that because I now wanted to cancel the application I had to pay £50. At this point I asked him why I could hear cars beeping their horns and zooming by in the background. He ignored me and said I had to go buy a UKash voucher for £50 and give him the voucher number so that he could cancel the agreement.

 

Knowing it was now certainly a [problem], I told him I had won the lottery and was going to buy his company so I could fire him.

 

His reply "I know your bank details Mr Millionaire and I am going to take as much money as I want you f****r"

 

I am posting this just to let people know not to give ANY details to these people - he was trying to find out if I was single/married and what my occupation was.

 

He informed me before hanging up that I will get a phone call every day until I pay up - to which I replied cheerily "Oh good, I like getting calls, speak tomorrow, mwah!"

 

I have searched this so called company online and have read some stories of people being duped into paying hundreds to receive a guaranteed loan and never ever getting it - and as they insist on UKash vouchers there is not much can be done.

 

Be careful folks!

I never got a phone number as it came up as "Unknown Number" on my phone.

 

If they do phone again I will try and start recording, I just never expected a call to turn out the way it did.

 

The guy was all friendly to start off with but once he realised that I wasn't going to part with any money he began threatening me by saying he knew my bank details and could just take the money out of my account.

 

It's disgusting that these people are obviously standing on a street somewhere in another country and we can't seem to do anything to stop them apart from make people aware of it.
