As part of a pilot scheme, Barclays have so far gone to the High Court to get wound up around 120 Companies who blagged/scammed them out of, or never repaid a Bounce Back Loan, which means they then force the hand of the Directors of those Companies, which opens the door for the appointed Liquidator to pursue their personal assets for repayment. Above are the ones I have so far tracked and reported on that were successful by way of a Director Disqualification and Compensation Orders etc being awarded. They have just been given the greenlight to pursue more Directors due to the success of that pilot, and one other Lender is about to start doing so having signed up to the Bounce Back Loan “Bounty Hunter” Service which Lord Agnew is the face of. You will also find full details of those BBL Bounty Hunters and what they do, in some of the articles listed up above and in this section of the website >

They are locking up Bounce Back Loan blaggers, and above you will see all cases in which one or more people were taken to court for BBL wrongdoing and ended up getting sentenced. Whilst you will find a range of different cases, a fair number of them relate to applying for and getting a LTD Company struck off after getting, then pocketing a Bounce Back Loan without telling Creditors. That is of course why all attempts to strike off a Company with a BBL owing now gets blocked, unless the bank tells the Government you are vulnerable and they are not pursuing the debt.

If you are in Bounce Back Loan arrears, or possibly in default, or you are heading that way, you are not alone. In fact the figures that are now being released every few months show plenty of people are behind with their repayments or cannot repay those loans. For a detailed overview of how each lender is handling all aspects of arrears and defaults and how many they currently have going through the guarantee claim system and how many guarantees payments have been paid out to them, along with some shocking examples of fraud uncovered take a look at this section of the website and look your lender up. >

Take a Look

All Lenders have been told to ensure anybody who is vulnerable is treated very, very fairly when it comes to BBL arrears and defaults. Lets’ face it they should do, as the Government did tell you to close/suspend your business, not go outside or you could die and then dangled £50k loans in front of those business owners they had put the fear of God into, many who were understandably vulnerable at the time. Need a Chat? Give me a bell >


Never, ever forget, it was the Government who told you to close/suspend your business, then filled your heads with stories of how going outside could lead to your death due to the “pandemic” then as you sat there with your business devastated, and in most cases, in a very, very vulnerable state, dangled a huge £50k loan before your eyes, with no credit checks and no affordability checks.
