    Does anyone know of any decent loan companies, who would give an unsecured loan to someone with bad credit?

    Really it depends on your circumstances but that was what we started with. Give them a call and see what they can do for you

    tried to contact you personally but for some reason I can't. If you get in touch I can recommend a couple of places.

    i found Benificial Finance were quite good as they are part of HSBC, they have pretty good rates (for sharks) and i found them pretty helpful. just try and pay it off before you get lumbered with all the interested! you can end up paying many thousands for your 2 grand!!

    Hi Dietingdon,

    Please don't take this the wrong way ... you can tell me to get lost if you like, but taking out a loan won't clear your debts, you're just transferring them. However you may find a loan out there that has a better APR rate than what you're paying now on say store cards etc.

    There are still hlaf decent loans out there, but may be you could give an indication of the APR's you have now then it would enable us to give you a better idea as to what loans are out there ...?

    Cheers

    i'm sure your lovely Kitty and i KNOW Welcome are very good at giving money to anyone, but they didnt half try and rip us off

    totally agree about the 'finders fee' thing, its a waste of money and guarentees you Nothing

    Someone told me that Welcome will only loan a tiny amount at first, like £500, and charge extortionate interest til you get a review then you might be able to borrow more. I could be wrong but that's what happened to my mate

    It depends how much people score for on their credit rating to how much they will lend
