Yes, we were nearly had by Better Business Funding and Tenterden Funding PLC. Very slick fraud, they nearly had me for £8250!!! Thankfully I went back a did a load more due dil before I uploaded my funds and google picked up this site and another one on Money Saving Expert. I am just trying to get it out there as much as possible before anyone else gets scammed. The more reports of their attempts to scam small businesses the better, but my God what a slick scam. Thankfully I am a member of the FSB, and contacted them before I put in my contribution too, and they advised me against it as well. I hope they catch this lot, it is hard enough to run a small business these days as it is, without these people praying on people who need funds to build their businesses.

I am so sorry to hear that they successfully scammed you. I was nearly convinced of the scam. This however I decided to do a bit more research on the actual credit card company. What got my suspicions aroused was the generic name for the business MasterCard TM. Then I looked into the who is for the websites for both Tenterden and business MasterCard. I found the business MasterCard was only created a few weeks before the start of speaking to me. Also this one guys name which I don't remember Jamie something rather keep cropping up as owner of the website. There is a similar website in a Australia owned by the same guys.?I think the authorities can easily stop this scam, if I can get out information about them I'm sure the powers can do a lot more. Please share this on your Facebook and othe social media everywhere, because I hate to see anybody else lose their money. Stay safe and keep vigilant.

Also, the Tenterden Funding PLC Website is a clone of a genuine American Website for a recruitment agency, whilst Better Business Funding .org is a very similar name to a genuine UK Business Loans Company. Oh, it's all very clever.
