Stop fraud.

Fraud is on the increase – be aware of the Authorised Push Payment Scams.


Authorised Push Payment (APP) Fraud is when scammers trick people into willingly sending money to them. They might pretend to be from your bank, claim that you have been a victim of fraud and you must move your money to a “secured” bank account. The criminals will try to create a sense of urgency, often threatening you with criminal charges or legal actions. 

Scammers might pose as your boss, requesting a favor, or pretend to be a relative in a situation requiring urgent help. They may claim to have a property to rent and ask for an upfront deposit payment to secure the viewing as they live overseas.

We do not charge up-front fees for our loans and would not approach you directly in this way. Billing Finance also only operates in the UK.
