Castle Finance Direct Admin fee taken without warning

I was looking for a loan in October 2020 and chanced asking this company for help. They referred me to someone else, as a broker service as they couldn't help, where I unfortunately was unsuccessful in procuring a loan. On the 13th November the sum of £49 was removed from my card. I had zero communication from Castle Finance Direct and do not recall authorising them to take this amount. I have tried twice to email and request a refund but I have had zero response to both as of today. I realise that with Covid things are taking longer but I dont understand how they can take the money without any warning and then ignore all attempts to retrieve money that is my hard earned one money.

Desired outcome: Receive a full refund of £49

Castle Finance Direct taken money from my bank account that I did not agree to.

This company has unauthorisedly taken the sum of £79.00 from my bank account. I did not agree to any of their terms and conditions or did I use any service they claim to provide.
I have sent emails to them but only received a generic reply.
On closer investigations it is clear they have done this to lots of other people who like myself did not knowingly accept to pay a fee.
It appears they do not respond to phone calls or emails when asking for refunds .
Surely this is illegally taking money from people's banks.
This company are theives.

Castle Finance Direct £79 taken from my account

Absolutely wrong what they are doing. They should make it clear that they are going to take 79pound from your account. They have just done the same to my partner. We are facing hardship so thought we would take out a loan and they have taken money from us and we havent even secured a loan, we are not even getting a loan anymore. Disgusting what they are doing. They need to be closed down !

Castle Finance Direct stole £79 out of my bank account without consent

This company just decided to take £79 out of my bank account and then fobbed me of for three weeks promising a refund even tried to lie to me about issuing a refund and then when pulled up on this changed there story to issuing my refund to a different account by mistake and then after all that promised to make a bank transfer there and then which of course never happened. Now I can't contact them in anyway and getting an answer machine every time and no response to emails. Absolute shocking treatment this company needs looking into straight away.

Castle Finance Direct fraud

Hello there, name is Bogdan, basically I had a personal problem and I needed a loan, having a bad credit I had to try for the payday loans. So I ended up applying on castle finance direct. Not being a direct lender I was redirected to another site, which declined my loan. 2 days after castle finance direct charged me 79 pounds, for what? That absolutely not fair. I searched on Internet about there reviews and no one was happy, apparently I become another victim of the scam

Castle Finance Direct castle finance direct

After looking at my options on this website I have just been charge a £79 admin fee which was never agreed. I have not gone ahead with a loan nor spoken to any loan providers therefore why have they taken £79? I am so upset about this. I have spoken to my bank who say I need to try and obtain a full refund from the company themselves before they can act further. I have contacted castle finance but not yet had a response. The terms and conditions on their website state that if a loan is not paid out within 6 months then the £79 admin fee should be refunded minus £5, I am not getting a loan as I do not wish to go ahead therefore according to their own terms and conditions a refunded should be given!

Castle Finance Direct £79 refund

castle finance took £79 out of my bank over 2 weeks ago which is an absolute joke, i know it's an admin fee to use the service, I've had no service off them, I have no interest in getting a loan, I rang them on the number off their website which was just an automated call that told me to email them for the refund and then the refund would take up to 10 days, when I emailed them the email bounced back, then when I tried to contact the admin department they just sent me a copy and pasted message every time I tried to complain about the service, I've had no feedback about my refund and I need this money.

Castle Finance Direct refund

Despite numerous emails, I've still yet to recieve my refund of £79. All I keep getting told was it would be paid back to me within 1-10 working days. It's been nearly 3 weeks now. Even today all I get told is anyday now! Just want my money back! I wouldn't mind, but I didn't even get a loan from them, yet they took money from me! I asked for phone number, just so I could speak to someone and didn't receive that! All I receive is an automated email. This is getting beyond a joke now!

Castle Finance Direct loan money

I applied for a loan in December 2018 and the £79 came out of my account. I decided I didn't want to go ahead with the process and asked for a refund. I was told it could take up to 6 months and that in the meantime I would stop getting offers of loans.I have sent plenty of emails requesting this refund (with no response), it's now 7 months down the line. Where is my refund?
