    Oh wow guys it helps to research, as suspicious as i was, still wanted to see how far it will go. Lucky enough i work with credit vetting and as i drew up a KI report for this company, it came back as 0 results and thats when i followed the wedbsite which led me here, we need to spread the word as fast as we can.

    i received an SMS from Flora about loans with 3.5% interest rate I was desperate and I applied, Willian a gentleman called me and told me that it was approved I must contact Flora. i did and she told me to pay R3550 before they pay the loan amount into my bank account. why pay money when you need money?

  • Nonhlanhla6 24 Nov 2014, 02:01 PM

    why do evolution money loan need R3550 upfront before they can give you a loan. i also received an e-mail from Flora and applied my loan was approved and i had to pay first.

  • Roysten 19 Sep 2014, 11:09 AM

    Same happend 2 me!what can they do with my info and who can I report this to?

  • Barrett 11 Sep 2014, 08:20 AM

    Hi All, I received the email and sms. When I confronted Flora in that the "Parent" company ( has no knowledge of a branch in SA, let alone in PE, I was blacklisted from them for 4 years. I have emailed their details to the company in the UK to take this further. These are their contact details: 061 1868700

  • Mokgethi Monareng 20 Aug 2014, 10:59 AM

    I've been contacted as well. They say they dont have their company lawyer and they rely on the independent lawyer to draft the business loan contracts. The catch is that I will have to pay the independent lawyer R7200 before I get business loan I applied for. I googled-mapped their address (22 Trafalgar Square, PE), and I get the dilapidated block of flats (for a company that is prepared to fund my business R7 million). This is a SCAM !!!

  • Justice4 13 Aug 2014, 05:41 AM

    Thanks guys, i also received the same message from Flora. But i didnt trust the message the same time i received it.

  • Ronel23 4 Aug 2014, 06:14 PM

    I also got one of those messages and I didn't know its a scam so I sent them all those things they wanted until they called me and said about the 3000 legal fees to be paid before getting the money! What can they do with all my info? Please help

    What do you when you fall victim to this? Do you go to the police or what?

  • dirk11 25 Jun 2014, 02:43 PM

    it is a scam people, admin fees are always included in the contract and added to the loan amount. where will you get an interest rate of 4.5% in south africa?
