Clientele Loan Scam

Please be careful when you apply for loans, as the latest one is that they are using Clientele's name and logo on a word document and send it to thousands of people via email.
I have scanned the bottom piece of the document they use and published it here.
The use emails to reach their suspects and sometimes one is so desperate for a load, that you will fall for scam tricks.
Best is to always Google something if not sure and when you know it is a scam, then post it on this website.

    Hi Andra, Thanks for reporting your story as well and I won't worry about anything - If they do phone you again, just tell them that you are not interested anymore then they will leave you alone. Don't threaten them as they do have your business name and your name to look you up. Be glad that you did a Google search on this when you felt something is not right.

  • andra roets 7 Jul 2015, 12:47 PM

    I was emailed this morning with a add to say I can apply for a clientele business loans. I replied to them with my business information like my registration number . address and turnover per month.I now phoned to find out if this is legitamate and spoke to a lady with a foreign accent. I immediatly felt this is a scam and googled. What should I do as they have my business registration number and information on my turnover a month? I did not submit my id number or supporting documents, but know they have my business address.

    Hi Paul, you can do your own investigations on any info provided on this website and be careful that this is not another scammer to scam people on this website as we had that before aswell. If people are not registered as credit providers, then stay away or be scammed.

  • Username3437 22 Jan 2015, 06:19 PM

    Hi Vuyisa, you welcome and if your ID number is wrong then you are a bit more safe than others. They will email or sms you to say your loan has been approved and that you need to pay lawyers fees. Just tell you you don't need the loan anymore and ignore future responds from them. You are not stupid, it is criminals that became very clever to scam innocent and desperate people.

I don't know why these people don't get tracked down an arrested as many people all over the world have been scammed by this. The only thing we can do is to keep on reporting and tell eveybody about this scam.

  • Pamela Kieser 17 Sep 2014, 08:52 PM

    I have also been a victim of this, and I am shocked that people can be so cruel! Is there not a way to put an end to these people? I spoke to the guy Mr Richard Morgan, on a few occasions personally, he even seemed professional. All the money that I wasted on e-mailing douments to him and phoning him, and then to still request an attorney fee of R2762. I know you need money to make money, but I don't think that rule applies here. They are thieves! And hopeully they can be stopped!

  • Username3437 15 Sep 2014, 03:33 PM

    Hi all...I also received an email today regarding a personal loan by Clientele Finance. And I fell for it. After I submitted the bank statements I felt very uneasy and what I should have done in the first place was to google. A certain Mr Simon Christopher spoke to me over the phone and assure me that I will have everything set out on a email tomorrow morning. I suppose that will be asking for initiation fee. Will they be able to do anything as they have our bank account no?

    Hi There I almost fell for this one as well had someone not showed me the Clientele website advertising loans for R120 000. When i phoned Clientele Loans, like someone else had done, i too was not loaded onto their system. Also when i said that i had been approved for R150 000, i was promptly told that no loan above R120 000 would be approved by Clientele Loans. When i phoned a certain Simon Christopher on 081 705 6788 in East London, he tried to tell me that they were different companies but using the same name and logo. Thanks to all you people and your reports, i would have been a victim as well.

    I received an advertisement from "Clientele Loans" saying I qualify for a loan of R150 000. They sent me forms which I filled in and I was told that my loan had been approved. I sent them my banking details and when I phone the landline that was provided there was no answer. I called the mobile number and asked for Ms Sharon, I was told that she is in a meeting.

You were right it is a scam - good on you for checking things out first and found this thread.

Then I received a phone call to check my e-mail and "my loan was approved" I now have to pay the fee and voila...the money will be paid into my bank account shortly. I realised this is a scam as 1. I had to pay registration fee and 2. How could the loan be approved without even making contact with my employer to verify my income.

    I received sms from a Mrs Sharon offering loans from Clientele loans. On responding sending ID and POI received a letter looking very official from Clientele Loans stating repayment amounts etc and request to confirm acceptance of terms and conditions. Thereafter and email saying I would then need to pay legal fee R1999 to attorney for documents. Then smelt a rat and did some google work and found this site. Does Clientele Loans actually exist and if so how does one make contact. The phone number they contacted me from was actually one of the numbers on the letterhead?

    Hi Tracey, thanks for reporting your story and info provided. I am really sorry to hear that you have been scammed by this and that your boss also told you about this is strange to me as well. Maybe your so called boss is involved in this scam. Best is not to show any emotions on this case towards him/her and don't speak about it either. Go to your nearest SAPS and tell them your story and also what I suggested as you never know if you don't report. Speak to a senior person at your SAPS if possible. Tell all your friends about this scam as well. Thanks for the compliment, but this is not my website but only my page on this spesific scam which I started to help the community on this scam and thanks to Google to bring it up when starting to investigate things. Take care Tracey as hard as it may be and learn from this mistake.

    Report from Tracey (Final Part): He converted it for me to R 16,720.00, which was going to be paid back to us with the loan amount. His accent and the fact that it was a refundable amount made me suspicious, and I decided to phone Clientele life to confirm this. When I goggled them for the number I saw this site. I will be forwarding everything to Det. Theunis Heck and Ricky Dalgleish. Hope they catch these guys. Anton, thank you so much for this site. This is a great service to the community, especially those of us that are still trusting. Username: Tracey

    Report from Tracey (Part 2): He requested our banking details as well as the admin fee of R 4,720.00, which of course we paid and email. I receive an email with their banking details from Mrs Linah Mhlongo, email address When I received the contract form this morning from, I phoned Mr Morgan on 079 5388 016 to ask how we are supposed to pay the 950.00 pounds for being a non UK resident, which did not make sense to me.

    Hi Alex, thanks for sharing the info. These people have inside connections to get your details and to catch these inside people will only be found when they catch the sindicate behind everything. Remember poverty plays a big roll in this and some people will always follow money even if it is illegal.

    Hi Mrs Singh, thanks for reporting your story and yes it is a big scam and hope that one day they catch the so called Richard Morgan. Please go and report this to your SAPS and tell all your friends about it.

    Hi. I also received the same sms last week and applied for a loan. I received an email this morning aying its been approved but they require R2720 admin fees. I got suspicious when I opened the latter and it had the Clientele logo but only cell numbers and when I called the numbers Richard morgan answered (sounds like a Nigerian) and sd these were the only numbers, no landline. Also he sd they are Clientele Finance and have nothing to do with Clientele Life when I asked if he was a division of them. When I asked why he has the same logo as them then, he cut the call - I called him twice!!! This is all a scam to loot money from the poor depserate people!!!

    Hi Helena, thanks for reporting your story and glad to hear you did not go ahead with this.

  • helena6 13 Mar 2014, 07:04 PM

    I did not accept the loan yet as they required. I dont think I would.

  • helena6 13 Mar 2014, 07:00 PM

    I also received this sms and email. I applied, then they asked for a payslip and id copy which I have sent, then they sent a request for an upfront fee before they release the money. I became suspicious and will report it tonight to the fraudulentl line when I get home. I am so scared something bad is going fo happen now.
