    Hi there. Where can I get a legit loan without paying any upfront fees please

  • Mr.Cronje 25 Oct 2018, 12:02 AM

    The company Clear ITC TAKES NO UPFRONT FEE'S what so ever. They look for a loan for you and I clicked on about 2 options. You can email your 3 months bank statements, ID copy and payslips to them at clearitc@workmail.co.za just add your contact details and a friendly consultant will get back to you. The most legit and reliable way to get loan

  • Micky85 2 Jul 2018, 01:32 PM

    @okud tanks for d info u shared, I truly got a loan from this Turkish people, they are truly legit. God bless u for saving a soul, because I almost lost my house

  • calum 27 Jun 2018, 11:43 AM

    westerneloans has given me a home loan and harmonise nice repayment by debit order

  • Okud 19 Jun 2018, 06:25 PM

    You are right, vloi100789, I know how I was scammed too many times, by our lenders before I got approval from a Turkish company, this morning, after 3days processing. They are legit company, but I paid for transfer cost, that is all the money I paid to make the loan come through. But the only problem I had is there interest rate, and the transfer cost they charge me
    You can reach them on whatsapp +905488761889. They are legit company

  • Puala 16 Jun 2018, 10:36 AM

    I don't believe in stories. @ uhuke, @ waii, @Chandini1, @ bet8 u all are scam. We have had enough from u guys. All of u should go get yourself good job, and stop putting pains in us. @ Vlooi100789 please do not deceive us. And don't work for people u don't trust, and you didn't get money from, pls be 100% sure of a company before posting, and secondly let d person be from South Africa

  • waii 13 Jun 2018, 11:23 AM

    vlooi we are talking about life style legal that is deducting money illegally from people's account. I got a loan by westerneloans@gmail.com but not without a fee because I was asked to pay for the Loan for and that happened to be the only money paid by me

  • waii 11 Jun 2018, 03:12 PM

    chandini1 that is exactly what they did to me. however, in my case I was sent a court summons via email I was trying to report them google it and discovered they have done same thing to so many people already.

  • Chandini1 11 Jun 2018, 09:06 AM

    I went online looking for loan, I came across Loan Hub SA, they called me and said they will help
    Suddenly after giving details , by month end they started deducting monies from my account
    They didn't give me any loans, now I get threats with summons to pay 1876 rands
    They use a recovery company to summon me
    Now what is this
    It's fraudulent, where didbinsign any agreement, they asked for bank details and said, they will out monies in
    Now they didn't give any loan, but take our monies
    They took first month money, I reversed it
    Loan Hub SA don't have right to my bank details since they didn't give me any loan
    Now summon via email
    Their email is recovery@lifestylelegal.co.za
    Name of company is Lifestyle Legal acting on behalf of Loan Hub SA

  • uhuke 9 Jun 2018, 04:46 PM

    @puala, @udas. You guys are really paranoid now... what makes you think i'm a scam artist? Go back on our chats and see what i've said that proves i'm a scam artist. No wonder people don't appreciate help anymore because of people like you throwing it back on our faces. Who says i'm a Nigerian... you're ridiculous lol.

  • ismail108430 26 Apr 2018, 01:45 PM

  • dunlop 26 Apr 2018, 12:41 PM

  • Kat123 26 Apr 2018, 12:39 PM

  • destutu 25 Apr 2018, 03:53 PM


  • destutu 25 Apr 2018, 03:53 PM

    that is the least I can do Kat. thanks too

  • Kat123 25 Apr 2018, 03:33 PM

    thank you very much @destutu... appreciate it. Hope it also assisted others...

  • destutu 25 Apr 2018, 03:13 PM

    another thing they look at is your income to determine whether you qualify for the amount you are asking for

  • destutu 25 Apr 2018, 03:12 PM

    They require your 6 months bank statement of your salary account to check if you are qualified, they also require your residential and office address. they are very strict with their money but are legit

  • destutu 25 Apr 2018, 03:10 PM

    I applied on 14th April get a response the following day to fill in my application properly I did and submitted, but my application was not considered because I was afraid of giving details of my office were I work. I thought if they would contact my office for clearance before approving my loan until I was told my application will be cancelled if I can't give details of my work place I did and my loan was eventually approved they never checked but they just wanted to be sure I was telling the truth

  • Kat123 25 Apr 2018, 03:10 PM

    you didn't mention how you went about getting your loan approved... do you just send an email applying for a loan... or do you mention all details including your confidential details...

  • destutu 25 Apr 2018, 03:03 PM

    @kat I did shared my experience with them

  • Kat123 25 Apr 2018, 01:37 PM

    Can @fuss, @teva and/or @destutu share with us what the process is to get your loan approved by west loans... please assist others.

  • Kat123 25 Apr 2018, 01:36 PM

    hi logun, i wasn't referring to you... you shed a lot of light for us. i'm referring to the people who mentioned west loans in the first place... they never bothered afterwards.

  • logun 24 Apr 2018, 03:55 PM

    my fear now is thy are going to withdraw my loan approval and grant it to someone else as they feel I am not serious about getting the loan

  • logun 24 Apr 2018, 03:53 PM

    my loan transfer is still pending because the account I provided to them had too many debit orders if the loan is paid in I will lose more than have of the money so I had to plead with them to wait while a make an alternative

  • logun 24 Apr 2018, 03:50 PM

    hi Kat please go back and check on my messages, I was approved on 15th and posted it here on 16th I only responded to Dunlop to help answer her question.

  • Kat123 24 Apr 2018, 03:49 PM

    People only care about themselves in this chat... the very people who mentioned west loans aren't even helping others (including myself), by mentioning how exactly they went about getting their loans approved by west loans and that's just selfish. Only communicate when you've been scammed... otherwise you don't care...

  • kalana 24 Apr 2018, 03:47 PM

    he said he is buying your camera but end up cheating you

  • Kat123 24 Apr 2018, 03:46 PM

    Now this is really weird. People are still getting approved for loans at west loans but we got declined a few days ago... something doesnt add up. Even @Paul106002 got declined...

  • kalana 24 Apr 2018, 03:46 PM

    please beware of Charles Dickens on gumtree

  • Kat123 24 Apr 2018, 03:42 PM

    @Dunlop, i doubt they'll assist you without having reassurance you can pay them back. Some of us got declined even though we had all the requirements...

  • logun 24 Apr 2018, 03:40 PM

    approval has been granted but I had issues with the account I provided so I had to open a new account for the purpose of the loan

  • logun 24 Apr 2018, 03:37 PM

    @dunlop they accepted my applications without payslip, I am self employed and do not work for any body

  • dunlop 24 Apr 2018, 03:13 PM

    I am really in need of this help

  • dunlop 24 Apr 2018, 03:13 PM

    I am a single mother in need of a loan. I need money for my kids fees and for food. I explained to West loans my conditions but I still need to provide my documents before they can help. I don't have payslip as I have no work is it possible to get a loan without a payslip

  • Micky85 24 Apr 2018, 11:43 AM

    the only thing is that im sure that most people because of being scammed is looking for that nudge and help to actually pay the "admin fee" first.So if this is legit and people did get the money then is there anyway we can help each other and pay once that one gets their money they help the next. we are all in the same position or most of us are. Im just saying ...we can help each other if we really wanted too.

  • Micky85 24 Apr 2018, 11:04 AM
