Z May 29, 2019

I'm not happy at all about Absa bank and I'm willing to expose them everywhere I go

I opened a savings account with them and then later on they decided to change the account to a cheque fine about that, Immediately after they changed it there were debit orders eveymonth of which I ddnt dnt know about them this thing went for about a year everynoth I must go and do reversals and they will charge me for each transaction I got fedup and I went to Sunninghill branch I told the guy who was assisting how irritated I am he advised I should close the account okey I closed the account and opened a new one savings account time went on then last week's Saturday they decided to deduct the some of R2000 in my account without even contacting me when I call them they said the cheque account is owing 6000 I asked them how is it possible because I closed that account they said no it's not closed I tried to call them no one was willing to assist me I sent them emails until the guy called KWENA MASINGA said he is busy with the issue and he will come back to me, I waited and waited when I call back some staff will say he is off some of them will say he is on lunch and the last one just said he is on study leave oh well

Everyone out there should be aware of Absa fraud

    The whole world should know about AND Fraud and scams happening there

    I don't think I'll ever bank with them, they have lot of scams debiting monies from clients account and their useless branches

    If you are using ABSA i would suggest you close that account because they will drain your money like no body's business and when you try to log a complain they never take you serious

    But I would all clients who are banking with them to try better banks outside these people are full of fraud

    Here is my story, I opened a savings account with them and later on they just decided to change it to cheque and their charges would be 99 rand okey

    From the first month I was changed to cheque debit orders started to debit in my account when I go to their useless branches I was told to pay before I even reverse my money this thing happened for over a year I then went to their Sunninghill branch and the guy there suggested I should close the account and open a new okey cool be cause I was already tired to go to the bank every month

    I opened a new savings account and then I thought I was in peace hence I ddnt know their plan later on I received a call staying that I'm owing Absa I told them I'm not owing them I closed that account and they just said no you can't just close it you need to pay ...i even went to Katlehong branch I also told them the same story that I dont want that account its closed

    To my surprise on the 25th of this month they just decided to deduct R2000 from my account without even contacting me they just authorised it them selves ...When I called them they said they can t reverse it because I the cheque there is fraud happening there which means they training their employees their fraud so they will just deduct money anytime they want

    I spoke to one of the manager KWENA MASINGA I even told him I will report this matter he said it doesn't matter which means they don't care about any of their clients I'll definately close my account, I'll also involve my lawyers and I'll also make sure that everybody knows about their fraud

    After all I want my money to be refunded back to my account then I'll close my account with them

    Im so pissed my number is [protected]
