Avoid at all cost, I applied for a buddy loan as the advert looked and sounded to good to be true. A bunch of cowboys playing with people’s emotions. Myself and my guarantor provided all the information they required, spoke to a very blunt …

Would leave 0 stars but can’t, accepted me for a loan, then told me because of what I am using it for they have declined me, was for consolidation, surely if I’m paying it back i can chose what i spend it on, wouldn’t waste your time if that’s what you want it for. Won’t be recommending.

If it’s good for your buddy its good for us- if your buddy earns a fortune that is! Why blatantly lie?? My guarantor was retired with a £700 a month pension and a 1.1 Million net worth. Not good enough. Shambles
