We received an email from Wonga Loans to offer us a loan at 3.5% interest rate. We applied online. Mandi Dav phoned us to say our loans approved. She emailed us terms and conditions. One of the term to protect us was we had to pay R4800 for their lawyers( Legal Wise) to draw up a contract. We paid. Then we had to pay Cost of Transfer costs for the money to clear into our account... we received nothing!. They even sent us a proof of payment from Barclays bank in the UK!!! We lost R10 000 and feel like absolute fools. Their banking details were for Capitec bank. Contact numbers and emails used are: 27 712 998 742/ 24 and 084 465 0773. other email address used was wonga.loanzsa@admin.in.th.
All the documents appeared real. Documents signed off by a Andy James. Legal wise contract drawn up by Attorney EK Magajane....  They copied and pasted everything even company registration numbers.

    My situation is almost similar. My story involves a Patrick(0710959619)very arrogant little prick. My first amount was r1850 for attorneys documentation fee to release the loan. A Mr Smith(0713121731)was also involved. They sent me the details of a Miss G.Ndukwana. Standard Back agent acc nr(286884267) to fax proof to fax nr(0865478232). Then Dave Harrison entered the picture. He is apparently the loan advisor/risk manager(0784667995). Then I had to pay transfer charges r1521,97. Then I had to pay r1970 for insurance charges. Then r950 to release the r50 000 into my bank acc to a Mr Lucky Sethoba acc nr(10058568946)Standard Bank. The amount accumalated to r6291.97. They then tried to get another r2800 out of me,then I told them I don't want the loan anymore and they then said I must pay r1500 to get the money back I originally paid for all the costs. I just laughed at them even though I feel quite stupid for believing them in the first place.

    they even contacted me to provide personal information regarding a 150000 loan. seems to me Wonga also offers loans to people in Namibia online.

    Many thanks for the warning. I was also emailed by her. An amount of R2899.00 was requested to draw up a so called contract for the lawyers to sign. I did not follow through luckily!

    Well just the fact that their lawyers are Legal wise, would have put me off dealing with them as "Legal wise" themselves do not honour their promises.
