Warning loan finders scam


To all desperate South Africans,  Do not be caught up in the so called loan finders, loan tracers, loan loacator scams. This people will take your money or destroy your financial status on ITC. They trade as loan seeking agencies but in small print they only offer loans as a complimentary service, they say their main business is a "PARA LEGAL SERVICE" or Telephonic legal assistance. Many have been scammed and many are getting threats from their lawyers. Stay away from this services or you will cry alone. I REPEAT, DO NOT FALL FOR THIS AND READ THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS BEFORE YOU FILL UP THE FORM.

    deducted but thank God I got a consolidation loan of R150k
    from divineheritagelenders@gmail.com to clear my name
    from ITC and settle all my debts. I advise anyone in need of
    a loan not to be scammed by these loan finders loan hub sa
    and lifestyle legal they are all scams and they can't summon
    you it is just a threat to trap you. contact divineheritagel
    enders@gmail.com they are Legit lenders Don't let lifestyle
    legal fool you, they can't blacklist you, summons are not
    done via email they not even legit so they can't summon you

  • maxbia 6 Sep 2016, 02:36 PM

    Definitely illegal as no written or verbal agreement.
    They lie and state that you are blacklisted. You are not as then Transunion and the Credit Ombud will be on their case and shut them down for all the complaints that they would have received. Also possibly SARS for non-reporting of income.

    I strongly suggest that you get a free report from Transunion to verify that you are not blacklisted (one free credit report a year).

    They lie about the summons as well.

    To report them and sister company Lifestyle Legal read this:

  • ErinB 26 May 2016, 09:11 PM

    Same thing happened to my friend today. Lifestyle Legal threatening with court action for R1500. She didn't even know - like many of you! Caught by the small print!!!!!!!! THIS HAS TO BE ILLEGAL. ARE WE NOT ON THIS SITE TO REPORT A CRIME ?
    Someone has to please investigate LOAN HUB/ LOAN PICKERS/ LIFESTYLE LEGAL. It is totally disgusting that these Scammers are getting away with a technical detail in their contract while they are actually Fraudsters and Thieves preying on already vulnerable people just trying to compare loans. How come they are allowed to continue? Please Everybody caught by these Crooks PLEASE CONTACT complaints@ncr.org.za

  • Abdul97510 25 May 2016, 12:24 PM

    Hi All

    The very same thing happened to me and I could simply reverse it on my Capitec phone app. I learned my lesson now. It was also for R395.

  • prolinetrue 11 Feb 2016, 09:17 AM

    Hi Everyone.

    Is is as simple as going to the bank and instruct them to reverse the debit order. Everyone must participate as they are ripping the people off big time by hiding the deduction amount under their terms and coditions. I have reversed two (2) debit orders. They cant do anything.If you ever apply for a loan and they ask your banking detaile before pre approving you - lights should flicker!! Dont ener your banking details. If their attorneys call you - send them to h@l

  • gregp 2 Nov 2015, 03:33 PM

    loan connector, loan finder, loan tracker, loan quest, loan discovery, loan locator etc etc are all the same fraudsters acting under different names. type "pretorious and stander" who are their lawyers into google and check out first 3 links all from www.moneyweb.co.za exposing these rip-off con-men. these people are bad news, dont go near them, they will take your money, give you nothing in return plus threaten legal action etc.
    we have lodged a complaint against them with the NATIONAL CREDIT REGULATORS who deal with such matters,
    i advise you to lodge complaint with them, very easy to do, just go to www.ncr.org.za

  • wendy30 28 Aug 2015, 06:32 PM

    this loan finder sa sucks.they jst deducted 395 today.I contacted my bank immediately,they gave me numbers to call,to speak to them.yoh those numbers were CELLPHONE NUMBERS that went straight to voicemail...its so sad 4 me i jst got from work now.ill have to call my bank tmrw to try and reverse MY MONEY

  • tsholo 26 Aug 2015, 10:08 AM

    Hi All , sorry about all things happens to you.Loan finder is not the financial provider only agent who finds loan on your behalf for different companies and please always make sure before you send out your details please read terms and condition all mentioned there regarding their fees.I am working for very reputable loan company I can assist you with the loan free of charge and I see that happens to many clients that walk in the branch or faxed documents .Please make sure you read and understand terms and condition before you apply

  • Ralph5 11 Aug 2015, 05:59 PM

    Well r395 was deducted off my account for the so Called loan finding, which obviously not guaranteed. So I get a call from someone who says he can guarantee a loan if i paid r2500,00 to his business account so in desperation I did exactly that. I know its sounds stupid off me to just pay the money although he proved to that he could do it, I have his details, name, cell number, account details that funds were deposited and where he works. I may have lost r2500,00. Now prepared to loose another r2500,00 to drive to him and guarantee my money out off him.

  • lilly2 7 Aug 2015, 12:36 PM

    Hi thank you guys I almost finished my loan but I think I would rather leave it thank you for you're msg it really help other people thank you

  • patricia moloisane 4 Aug 2015, 02:45 PM

  • Jordan Leaslie 31 Jul 2015, 12:58 PM

    Loan finders deducted R395.00 from my account 31 July. I called my bank and had it reversed i less than 5 minutes. I just wonder how many people are being scammed by these people and more importantly, I wonder why they are still operating and not in jail. If anyone knows where to report this, please advise.

  • henny 31 Jul 2015, 08:02 AM

    R395 00,tried to be deducted from my account,money was not there?I tried to find out why they tried to take money from account and I was not given the loan.

  • Aubrey10 29 Jul 2015, 12:49 PM

    Hi there, during my financial storm I fell for Loan Tracer. Condition was that I pay a admin fee which I agreed and instructed them to debit it from my bank account and they did. I furnished the form with all my detail in request for a loan but did not get any response until now in July when they say I owe them R399 plus legal fees R500 and if I contact them it goes into fax mode.

  • nthabiseng9 24 Jul 2015, 12:38 PM

    HI EVERYBODY THIS SA LOAN FINDERS PPL IS DEDUCTED 399.00 FOR THE 4 MONTHS PLUS THEY TOOK 1600.00 CASH THAT HAS TO BEEN PAID IN TO SHOPRITE OR CHECKERS SO EVERYBODY LETS FIND THEM

  • Shaun Brits 1 Jul 2015, 07:46 AM

    Reading through everyone's complaints on here, I feel that people should know what they get themselves into. I have applied with Loan Finder SA for a loan. It clearly stipulates what they offer on their website, I have also called in to their call centre and i asked all the question before applying. It's simple they offer a free loan finding service upfront, the fee you pay which is only on your salary date is for 24/7 legal and ID assist as well as a comprehensive report for 2 years. This is a service they offering which you people have applied for but don't read what they offer. If these guys were stealing money why would they be CPA compliant. If you read further they have a cooling off period in which you can cancel. People in SA are just ignorant when applying and wanting things for free. My suggestion. Do research on the companies you apply to, understand what they offer, ask the questions so that you can self educate yourself instead of complaining. And no they not paying me to say this. Like I said I am to a client of Loan Finder SA and I'm happy to say that I'm enjoying the benefits.

  • Jackie5 30 Jun 2015, 11:58 AM

    Today these Loan Finders deboted R395 from my account.Can someone help with answers they didnt have my consent to do so!!!!But I have request a refund and did place a trace alert on these ppl

  • Monantha 25 Jun 2015, 07:00 PM

  • Username8435 24 Jun 2015, 02:30 PM

    Go to your bank and reverse the money - then report them to the fraud dept of your bank. I have received further Legal action letters now, has anyone received these- legal advice - I am going to ignore it, but they just keep on making your amount "owing" bigger - adding legal costs... any advice?

    hi go look at crime id 8303. also about loan scams you need to look out for.

  • Username8303 3 Jun 2015, 01:22 PM

    hi guys please note. that if someone deducts money from your account via debit order and you did not authorise it, you can go to your bank with your id and request that the money be tansferred back into your account and for them to stop the debit order. it takes 8 hours and the money is back into your account. the sooner you act the better.

    People, if they deducted any amount via debit order, just go to your bank and have the debit order reversed! Easy as one, two, three! Don't be fooled by loan agents!if the debit is younger than 3 months, they WILL reverse it!

  • Username6218 10 May 2014, 10:57 AM

    Hi Amanda, there money they deducted is gone and ca not be recovered. I would advice you to send an email to them informing that you would like to cancel their service stating your id and ref number. After doing that you need to consult your bank to block any further deduction from them. If your not replied within 48 hours do call the NCR and remember to keep the email as proof of cancellation. If your to call them, do have a call recorder installed as you would need prove at a later stage.

  • AMANDA5 1 May 2014, 09:19 PM
