Lucas Credit Services @ www.lucascreditservices.co.uk

Lucas Credit Services
DCAs That Chase Financial Debts:
Lucas Credit Services Ltd was incorporated in 2010 and their launch followed in 2011. This is very much a Lewis Group revival noting the Directors Nicola Dyer and Nick Ramsden who had each worked there right from the 80s up to 2011. The founder (Dr Roger Lucas) also worked at Lewis and was notably the president of the CSA for a few years. That collection agency has of course now ceased trading. Hoist Finance had acquired and then opted to fuse it within their existing operations. LCS has less than 50 employees, but despite being small they have grown very quickly in the short time that they have been in business.

Tick Tock Loans @ www.ticktockloans.com

Tick Tock Loans
About:
The Tick Tock Loans have been in popular demand since they popped up in 2014. They haven’t been a big advertiser, but Google data shows that interest in the service has been growing quickly. This is the only active trading name from the owner (Savvy Loan Products Ltd). There are a few other trading names on their licence page and so we await to see if they’ll come up with anything for Xoombra and Yazaim. This company operates primarily from www.ticktockloans.com although they have also crafted the (.co.uk). The content is matched on that side, but the Tick Tock loans login button redirects and there is an SSL error and so the one listed is advised to use.

Hoist Finance UK (Hoist Portfolio Holding 2 Limited) @ www.hoistfinance.co.uk

Hoist Finance UK (Hoist Portfolio Holding 2 Limited)
DCAs That Chase Financial Debts:
There has been a high volume of web searches via Google for the term Hoist Portfolio Holding 2 Limited. In recent years, forums have been littered with complaints and questions regarding this firm, especially across 2016. Just what is the reason being this surge in interest and who is the company itself? This is what we’ll be looking at here. The actual entity (FCA #652220) is no longer active and so the search spike should drop across 2017. Hoist Finance UK is however active, but they just purchase accounts and pass these on to Robinson Way. When those forum posts were mounting up, there was confusion on who to contact and there was no website to follow up.

SkyQuid Loans @ www.skyquid.co.uk

SkyQuid Loans

About:
SkyQuid loans have been doing the rounds since 2014. This project that you’ll find at www.skyquid.co.uk is owned by Sunny Marketing Ltd. London-based Sunny was established in 2011 and they had got up and running in 2012 with the launch of 100Pounds. That is a short term product, whilst instalments are catered here. When initially heading on to the homepage they alert visitors that they don’t do sliders, how long etc. Instead, they’ll come back to offer you whatever your credit status enables. This isn’t really a good way to boost conversions as it’s important to compare just what’s up for grabs. There are at least a few details added regarding the potential amounts and terms.

PiggyBank Loans @ www.piggy-bank.co.uk

PiggyBank Loans
About:
PiggyBank was the creation of DJS (UK) Ltd who are based in Christchurch. This project was rolled out in the year 2012. Their initial approach taken was to focus on short term peer-to-peer lending through www.piggy-bank.co.uk. This concept proved unsuccessful not just here, yet also at The Lending Well. Whilst that other company opted to close down, a simple change in direction was taken here, when they adapted to lend themselves. Whilst Piggy’s growth took its time, things would eventually start to swing in their favour. There has been a notable surge in Google search for many big keywords. At the same time they have now released 2 TV ads (in 2016 and 2017).

Monkey Dosh Loans @ www.monkeydosh.com

Monkey Dosh Loans
About:
Monkey Dosh (sometimes termed as MonkeyDosh) has been an active payday lender since 2010. The Manchester-based firm trades through this featured company only at www.monkeydosh.com. Both Personal Credit Loan and Slater Brooks are also listed on their FCA page, but when we checked these domains, each had been taken down. Things have been a little quiet on the advertising front over the past few years. They did historically advertise across their home city whether that be promo posters or radio ads put out on Key 103. Their Twitter hasn’t been updated for a year and there are a few site issues such as with logins and so some may wonder how much longer this lender will remain in business.
