Caveat Emptor - Buyer Beware

Caveat Emptor - Buyer Beware

Posted on 4th September 2018 at 03:26 PM

Planet Leasing would like to advise the public of the following Leasing Industry warning.

"Unscrupulous fraudsters are scamming people with poor credit ratings, promoting bogus vehicle leasing deals offering ‘No credit checks’ and ‘No Deposit’, and 'Direct Message via text to receive this offer'.  If you see a vehicle leasing advert that requires ‘No credit check’, BEWARE, it’s a scam.

All legitimate BVRLA leasing broker members adhere to FCA rules and will carry out credit and affordability checks. Those who don’t, will not be legitimate traders and could be out to scam you."

The BVRLA has reported this emerging threat to the authorities and will continue to explore ways of increasing awareness to protect customers and BVRLA members.

Planet Leasing Limited would like to reassure all current, and future, lease clients that we will always carry out credit and affordability checks.
Planet Leasing Limited is a BVRLA member and all our processes are highly regulated by the FCA.
Planet Leasing Limited is always transparent in its dealings with its clients and will always promote the clients' best interests to the utmost level.

I would highly recommend Planet Leasing if you are considering leasing a car. From my first conversations with Elliot who found a higher spec Audi A3 at a lower price than my previous car, to the help and assistance through the ordering and delivery process provided by Kirstie and the administration team, their customer care service was exemplary. Calls were always answered promptly and politely and each member of staff did their upmost to answer any query even if the relevant person was not available – a rare quality these days. Thank you all very much for ensuring my new car arrived on time and I will be sending my daughter hopefully very shortly when she passes her test!
