FCA warns of new instant cash clones
The Financial Conduct Authority is calling on consumers to remain vigilant for fraudsters offering instant cash loans. After previously warning of an increase in unscrupulous scammers preying on unsuspecting victims during the pandemic, they are reporting that Monva Ltd is the latest firm to be targeted by such clone firm fraudsters.
What is a clone firm?
The FCA says: “fraudsters usually use this tactic when contacting people out of the blue, so you should be especially wary if you have been cold called. They may use the name of the genuine firm, the ‘firm reference number’ (FRN) we have given the authorised firm or other details.”
