    I made a loan with after I was scammed by this fake wonga loans have reported the case to the fraud unit still waiting for their response

  • MBE0203 1 Dec 2015, 04:52 PM

    Good afternoon, I was also almost caught by this. I also became suspicious when my "immediate approval" arrived. The grammar also did not seem like a professional company, and that is why I went online to investigate a bit further. I have also never heard of you paying lawyer's fees to draw up a contract. But this leaves me at a loss. Does anyone know where I can find a legitimate loan if I have bad credit?

    I thought this too good to be true, applied for Loan to consolidate my accounts and submitted all the necessary required documnets on the 18th July and got a immediate resonse first thing the 20th July. Upon research find that they are NOT a registered company as the reg number is NOT legit. and became suspicious straight away - my advise DONT apply online or via email sent unless direct from a registered Loan company

  • Marina5 19 Jul 2015, 05:51 PM

    They are using Word documents now with logos From:Wonga Loan - Subject: 3.5% Wonga Express Loan special Promotion Offer Kindly Read the Attached Letter of Notice Email: Phone No: 0732988735 Surely applying for a loan means you do not have the funds to PAY in the first place for admin fees or lawyers or whatever they ask you to pay for.

  • Ria Kruger 1 Jul 2015, 07:08 AM

    I also had the unfortunate incident I applied for loan was approved on 30 June 2015 and I needed to pay R2890-00 administration fees...I did and then received a e-mail stating I need to pay a further R4669.00 for online registration....I immediately starting to see red flags. I will demand my money back and I will report this for further investigation.... Do not apply at Wonga Express Loan with e-mail address as this is a scam. So galled Loan Verification / Approval Unit, Mr Larry Nico at the Wonga Finance SA(Pty) 298 Moore C/O Street Valley Road, East London, SA & contact details 078 2988735 & fax0865676569 and the money was requested to be deposited in KN Manaka's account for administration fees at ABSA Bank with Acc Nr: 4086741428..... Don't fall for this unlawful scammers like I did....first google and make sure about any loan providers..... Will keep you updated....

    Good day, on the 01st of June 2015 I received an sms from Gomba Loan offering a loan at 3% Interest rate from R10000 to R10Mil, I then contacted the number and spoke to a Mr N Okonkwo and he took me through the terms and conditions in which of those he only spoke to me about the admin fee that I need to pay of R700.00 to this capitec account number 1412067152, which I did deposit the R700.00 the same day, later that day I received yet another sms stating that I have been approved for a loan of R20000.00 then I called in and spoke to a lady by the name of Tina of this number 0783998712 as on the sms the wrote in incorrect name and amount I applied for and she apologized and she requested that I pay R1999.00 for legal fees, I then managed to deposit a R1000.00 the same day and it took me a while before I deposited the rest of the money, now that I finally deposited the outstanding money I'm told again to deposit R500.00 for late submission or deposit.... The guy I have been dealing I send him an sms that I will be reporting this issue to the police and have requested that they deposit back all the money I have deposited to them and he tells me that he won't be able to assist me with that. The email address they gave me is I have proof of all the deposits I made.... Can someone please assist me Kind regards Motlatsi Bambisa

  • Mr Vinod Singh 22 Jun 2015, 09:34 AM

    I did apply online in March 2015 with McCarthy Loan Investments in Cape Town but was scammed out of R13 972.00 being fees. Over a period of 2 months they made excuses for me to pay to release funds. I was in contact with Rodriguez McCarthy who kept on taking God's name in vain. I was mailed a. Standard bank deposit receipt with my account number & name but this was not reflecting in my account. I was asked to make fee payments to Patrick N. Msibi at the FNB ATM's. I have opened a case of fraud against them at the Phoenix Police Station in Durban. I have also alerted Standard Bank & FNB Bank regarding this via mail to investigate this matter but did not receive any news as yet. I also received an SMS from but now I am not going to fall prey to all these online fraudsters.

    I also received a sms to apply for a loan at 3.5%. They sent me the loan application from Wonga finance. 100 Western Avenue East London. Contact person is Florence. This morning I get an email advising that my loan approved, but I have to pay R3990 which is for the attorney fees to draw up the contract. I smelt a rat. What should I do, as I have sent them the completed loan application form, as well as my ID, Payslip & bank statement. Please Advise ASAP.

    I received an sms from Wonga, phoned them and they ask me to send my I'd and Payslips, after doing that they called me confirming a loan approved for R1.2 million, but I first have to dep R5500 into the following acc. PM Thebe, Capitec Bank, Acc no. 1159608944, for attorney fees for the contract. They phoned from this cel no. 0739937350 and provided the following address. 104 Centurion Ave, Cape Town and the following email address. When I phoned them to ask for the name of their company, they said that they are workong through Wongaloans. Be very carefull, this is not for real. They put the phone down when I said to them that they first have to pay the money into my account before I pay any fees.

    I also have fallen for the same scam. Send all my docs, only wanted to consolidate my debt. I also had to pay upfront R 2 999-00 before they would pay me. In my case I received a reference number from Barclay's bank saying my money was on the way. That was 5 days ago.

  • Irvin-Asley Coetzee 14 Dec 2014, 12:28 PM

    I applied for a loan using an email address . I submitted the application on Fri afternoon, 12 Dec and received an email an hour later which confirmed that a loan of R150 000 was approved! I was amazed and ecstatic. However, my joy was short-lived the moment my gut feeling told me that this was Too Good to be true!! 1) Which company grants loans in double quick time on a Fri pm...... 2) How is it that an admin fee of R3800 is payble to an attorney before they transfer the money into one's account.... 3) A loan rate of 3,5% spread over 36 months didn't even cover the loan amount.... 4) When I asked if there was a branch in Gauteng, they ignored the question..... I googled Wonga scam alert and realized that I was right: it was Too Good to be true!!! Luckily I refused to make a deposit unless the money was in my bank account!!

  • clive marais 26 Feb 2014, 04:26 PM

    Good Day I received this dodgy email from the following e-mail address and strongly believe that this is a scam comparing from wonga loan adverts that I see on a daily basis emphasizing that you dont give huge amount as loans I further phone the number on the flyer which to connect me direct to the person with the name of Pamela which I believe is a private nr comparing to your switch board connections The worrying factor is that the registration 2010/015269/07 and the NCR CP5033 numbers are completely the same I make you office aware of my findings and they advise me to send this information to you and I hope that this little information could be of help to you in fighting corruption in our beautiful country Regards Clive
