When you need debt help in Scotland, you should feel confident that the organisation that you’re speaking to is genuine.
Trust Deed Scotland® are aware of a number of ‘clone firms’ who are using altered versions of our name such as ‘Scottish Trust Deeds’ or ‘Life After Debt‘ and other variations of our trademarked name, and campaign awareness slogans to convince people that they’re the official Trust Deed Scotland®
They’re not genuine. They’re often not even authorised by the FCA to give advice.
Once a clone firm or scam website has your data, they could:
- Sell it to other companies
- Try to access your bank account or other credit products
- Try to fraudulently take out credit in your name
Trust Deed Scotland® will never…
- Charge you for debt advice
- Contact you, unless you contact us first
- Refer you onto anyone else
We understand the enormous stress that unaffordable debt causes people and that they simply don’t need further anxiety caused by poor, unregulated and sales-driven advice.
