Specificloans - Mr Johannes

Applied for a loan with Mr Johannes after we got an e-mail add. Send through 3 months bank statements, ID, and payslips. We we're approved and then they started with fees. We have now paid them R32 000.00 as he is very convincing that this was not a scam. After going on google mamps to the address, we found out that there was a company lending money but has been closed for a few years and that Johannes and his mates are using their name in conning us for money. Worst of all is that we have believed him as he promised on his life that this was ligit, even telling us that if the transfer does not happen, he will refund us all our monies. Now, this man has my whole life in his hands, as he has my id, banking details and address!!!! and there is nothing I can do about it

    Please be advised everyone, legitimate LEGAL loan institutions will never ask you for an upfront fee to secure a loan. Any fees that are incurred will be taken from the monthly repayments. Any place or person offering loans either using a free mail service like gmail or yahoo or any place or person offering loans that asks for upfront fees are no legal lending institutions and are only in the business of scamming you. They will ask for more and more money while dangling the loan in front of you like they are dangling a carrot in front of a horse. You will pay and pay and pay but you will never receive the loan and in the end you will just be plunging yourself further into debt. Please do not allow yourselves to be the victims of these fraud scams anymore, let us all educate ourselves in order to preserve our hard earned money.

    I had a similar incidsent with Pollarloans I had to pay R2950 into his And a account for registration and insurance fees. He, Peter Danny then did I had to pay an additional R10 000 insurance and attorneys fees which was refundable after first payment. I said I was unable to pay and now I cannot get hold of him.

    Casper, I don't have the account number with me now. mr Johannes is very kind and reassuring. Says that he is now unhappy because I reported him on this site and I am doing his business harm. But until he proves me wrong, I still stand with my opinion that we were caught for a sucker. (Kraaikie1970 @gmail.com) If it is not the case, I will make a public appology.
