The buggers keep calling, twice a day, but they've upgraded!! When the answer machine picks up, they can tell, and automatically divert to a recorded message that mentions loans.co.uk - Today i changed my machine so that it doesn't give the option to leave a message, but keeps the line open... Poor guy kept asking for me.. :-)
2 calls today from this number. Did manage to speak to someone who was reasonably polite and english. They refused to give me a company name or alternative contact details. Do they use any other 01772 numbers?
this is mbna selling loans. They have called for my partner 3 times today. Seems fishy as I've heard that they hang up when they speak to the person they ask for.

Husband answered they asked for me the hung up when I spoke!
These people have been calling me for the last week. i ones answered but they hung up.
If these people keep annoying you - call this number 01923 655 540 and speak to Karen McDade directly. She holds quite an authoriritive position. Try calling her twice daily, perhaps leaving no message or indeed just putting down the receiver. They seem to think that this it is alright practice for their sales staff to adopt!

Having spoken to loans.co.uk they did verify that 01772 551900 was indeed one of their numbers. I spoke to the manager of the call centre Sonia Giordano 01772 268591 and passed on my grievances regarding the techniques of the sales staff. In particular, when they state that their call was concerning an 'application' that I had made (false). To give the woman credit she did state that they wanted to check my details to ensure that any fraud had not taken place (i.e. that someone had made an application in my name). I asked her if she minded if I passed on her number to any relevant sources (which I consider this site to be, as people are 'Googling' nuisance phone calls now). I suggest that if anyone receives any of these calls that they call Sonia directly as she holds a senior position and can deal with any issues or concerns you may have. As yet I haven’t disclosed any details to these people directly or asked to be removed from the database. I will be recording any future calls that I receive in order to compile a dossier.
These are a dodgy outfit. Spoke to the 'customer services' today after finding this site. They played silly games and kept me on hold for 7+ minutes. Whenever they asked to speak to me they said it was in reference to an application that I had made to them, totally untrue (and I suspect Illegal). Can't bad mouth this company enough.
These people call me almost every day at least once. Each time they hang up.
keep asking for my ife and then hang up!! f*&kers!!
i have several calls too from this number and they hang up all the time when the ansa machine gets it, they are always engaged, this is prob an automated dial out number seems dodgy.
Its not a loan company at all,its some type of scam/ripoff.They phoned my 65 year old dad and said they were from MBNA bank,started asking for private account info .Lucky my dad got suspicious an wouldnt answer at which point they hung up.I tried to ring them but its constantly an engaged tone so i rang the real MBNA helpline and they varified its nothing to do with them.DO NOT GIVE ANY INFO TO ANYONE RINGING FROM THIS NUMBER,ITS A SCAM.
Called me twive a day for the past two days. I never answer if I don't recognise the number. Like the dude above I found this through Google. I'm not supposed to get any sales calls so I'll be using the info garnered here to report a violation.
What a result. The number belongs to www.loans.co.uk
Tried to get ne to take out a loan, when they hung up, i found out it was the same number.
Called me again today. Used google and found this place. They've been calling almost every day now for a little while, but they hang up when my machine answers.
These people have called twice a day for a few weeks now. They hang up as soon as the call is answered
These people called twice and hung up as I answered after 1 ring
