UK Jellies, are you familiar with Cheryl Finance?

Asked by Hypocrisy_Central (26829points) February 15th, 2012

Cheryl Finance supposedly is a major funder of large projects, and do so rather easy and quick. I have dug around most major fraud/scam sites,,,, etc but I can’t find any dirt on them. Is that because they are a UK company? You in the UK, are they ending up in the news for shady business practices? Are they that squeaky clean or just good at hiding their trash?

I work in finance in the UK and I have never heard of Cheryl Finance, having looked at their website it would appear that although headquartered in London they don’t seem to do any business in the UK and nowhere on their site does it say they are regulated by the FSA (Financial Services Authority) which is a legal requirement for all financial service providers in the UK.

I’ve done a search on the FSA register for them and they are not listed. My advice, approach with extreme caution.

This got me curious so I also searched them on Companies House, where all UK Limited companies are registered and it turned up nothing, also the phone number Cheryl Finance have on their website is a UK mobile phone number! The best bit, when I searched the address, Kinds Lodge London RD, West Kingdowns, TN15 6AR, turns out it is a residential street. Streetview of address

@RareDenver Great job! Perhaps it’s a person looking to make some money – her name is Cheryl Finance and she works from home.

Have a look at their loaction on their map page and see if you spot the obvious mistake.

Tip for those who are stuck Interstate 80 ain’t in the UK

The company has an American name, Cheryl Finance Inc, and yet its address is in the UK? There is a UK registered company listed at the address they give on their website. There is something odd going on here.
Name & Registered Office:
TN15 6AR
Company No. 06855055

Are those Traveler caravans in the front of that house?

I think real investors are sought out by prospects. I don’t think they have a Flash “Get Millions Now!” on their website.
