Current product safety and Trading Standards warnings and advice:


  • Cardiff Trading Standards are warning anyone seeking a loan on the internet to be especially careful after they have received complaints from people who have been received telephone calls from scammers after doing their searching. The scammers have claimed to be from a business called Sky Blue Loans, and give a Cardiff address and telephone number. To get the loan consumers are asked for the first payment in advance, if they agree to that they have then been asked for additional payments to cover "taxes" and "personal delivery". Some consumers have handed over several hundreds of pounds, and needless to say the loan never materialises. Anyone who has been caught out is advised to contact the Action Fraud hotline 0300 123 2040

    Trading Standards advice to anyone looking for a loan is to consider approaching a local Credit Union, which can offer a savings plan and loans at reasonable rates.
