    I'm feeling lonely and abandoned. I did not have an e-mail from them this morning. Is it something that even my best friend won't tell me?
    I used to think that good grammar is important, but now I know that good wine is importanter.

    Perhaps a call to www dot actionfraud dot police dot uk in the first instance could be a brilliant idea.
    Then contact quickquid from their website. Never follow a link or use a phone from any suspicious email received.

    I'm so glad I found this thread. I got this email this morning too, and it sent me into a bit of a panic, I HAD tried to take loan out with the once to cover a week until pay day, rather luckily I was declined a loan. But this email got my head racing.

    "Did I actually get the loan and forget about it?"
    "It was about 2 years ago that I applied, and my memory isn't great"
    "Oh god, imagine the interest!!!"

    I'm glad that I'm not alone in receiving it, before finding this I did send them an email, so hopefully I can get some clarification from them.

    I must say it's quite a convincing email, and I don't dare to think about the people who do have outstanding loans with them. I hope everyone has managed to steer clear of handing over any information.

    Large thread on the loan section started this morning, many people have received this, it seems to be some sort of error.
    See this link Have I been a victim of Fraud?

    I've not seen the email, but it *could* also be a new type of phishing email. Get people worried and ask them to ring an expensive phone line where nobody answers...
  • I have a loan with them and got the email too, I fired one back reminding them that I'm with StepChange and my account with QQ was passed to MacKenzie Hall a month or so ago.....I did think it was odd to get this email, I was annoyed to get it. I do wish I'd never used payday loans but I was weak and desperate so I hold my hands up and say I did and that's that. These companies do need serious regulations and need to be watched 24/7 or shut down. Hope everyone's having a good day so far by the way :)

    Same thing, never used them. However they own other loan companies with various names, including Pounds2Pocket which i used a couple of years a go. They will use one database for all there customers so it may explain why people who have never used QQ themselves are getting the email.

    What does need pointing out:
    If a company has lent money to someone they believe to be you.
    They are the victim of the fraud not you.

    Never let them fool you otherwise or convince you that you are the victim of the scam.
    The responsibility of any lender is to identify the person correctly, if they allow someone to deceive them with your identity that is their problem not yours.
    Stand firm from day 1.

    Just a scam mail in this instance, but the lack of knowledge on who is the victim in such frauds is worrying.
    Be happy...;)
  • I have spoken to them on the phone and they claim it is a 'system error'
