The Incident

Alma Easy Loans asked me to send R 4750 in order for them to transfer loan amount of R 80 000 which they claimed I qualified for. I applied through them via their website http://www.almaeasy.co.za/. They promised that the money will be transfered to my account yesterday before 14H00. I have been calling them and e-mailling them since. As soon as they hear it's me phoning, they claim that they cannot hear me. I used various phones to contact them, but they still claim not to hear me., that if they answer the phone at all. their number is 031 813 5332. They are completely ignoring me!

They promise that they repay the insurance fee of R 4750 after 2 weeks back to the client.

Alma Easy Loans are scammers. The guy behind this calls himself Bright Graham.

Please warm South Africans of this crime.


Mark as SPAM/Inappropriate

I have been caught with the same thing, and they even had the cheek to advise me to reverse/ recall my payment which cant be done as the account is empty. I emailed these people again today, stating that Im reporting them for fraud, Im just waiting for nedbank to send me the trace on that account I paid the money into. How can they steal south africans hard earned money that way.

I aswell applied for a loan of R200 000, and then had to pay the deposit of R6750 to a account held by Mazomba Masande and apparently it is a absa savings acc. I looked them up on facebook and found a contact no to one of their family members. I am onmy way to johannesburg as i dont want to involve the police just yet. I will keep you informed.

Wow,a week ago I did a google check on these guys looking out for such stories because they told me I qualify too, but there was nothing negative on the net, these stories are shocking me as I deposited 6750 also on friday, I just came from the advertised address '1 Kingsmead Boulevard' and they have never occupied space in that building ever. This is definately a scam i'm going straight to the police.

Well no doubt it is a scam, my best friend is with the Hawks, we went to the address confirmed with the admin they dont know these people, also they have disconnected their telephone and cell numbers. On the upside officially the hawks are on this case, we should be getting our day in court soon.

This happened to me a month ago and the company name is Aifheli Cash loans! Apparently I also qualified for an amount of R80000 and I was asked to pay R3480 and the money will be in my account by 14:00 till today I'm waiting! Have tried to reverse that transfer I did to a Nedbank account and there was no money in the account. Tried calling them but no one picked up the phone not even my emails! Told them that I was going to report them as I went to the Cipro website and the company is registered sent the owner messages and they also not responding! This is really sick cause people are really desperate for help while some idiots are making fools out of us! I wanted to report this company with NCR as they also appear there as a valid client of theirs but I didn't know how to go about of what will happen.
