Loan Discovery Sa / stealing

South Africa Review updated:

i checked my bank account today just to find that they have taken R399 off my bank account without my permission. the rendered no service to me at all. they are refusing to refund me and the lady at the customer care call centre screamed "JESUS CHRIST" in my ear when i told her that this is unacceptable. i waNT my money back as i never gave them permission to take it from me. they had no right. i also want these scammers to be closed down as im not the only person they have stolen from. please send me a fax number then i can send you my bank statement

    Once again I have recieved a ridiculous automated response from these crooks and once again they are still not answering their telephones. It is clear that I applied for a loan with them and now I am being coerced into paying legal advise fees which I at no point requested. This company makes a living from binding unsuspecting citizens into so called legal services by applying for a loan (FISRTLY THE COMPANY NAME IS MISLEADING). They cover up their dishonest and unethical behaivour through beauracracy and contracts. I DID NOT TAKE THE LOAN AND I DID NOT REQUEST LEGAL SERVICES YET I'M BEING FORCED TO PAY. And they choose not to respond on hello.peter because they dont care about our complaints and know that they are cheating people out of their hard earned money. THESE CRIMINALS NEED TO BE STOPPED BEFORE THEY CHEAT MORE CITIZENS OF THEIR MONEY. SIES!!! DISCOVERY LOAN SA ARE CROOKS!!! I HAVE ENGAGED THE OMBUDSMAN ON THIS MATTER AND TRUST THEY WILL BE DEALT WITH, FURTHERMORE I WILL WRITE TO MEDIA HOUSES TO WARN CITIZENS AGAINST THIS CRIMINAL COMPANY!!!

    I phoned there call center and made enquiries regarding a loan because their online application requires banking details. The call centre agent could not give a reason but I was desperate and submitted a application online about 2months ago. They then emailed me application forms and said i should pay R399-00 before they would process my application. I would not have borrowed money if I had so i did not continue with the application. They sms me today with my ID number displayed and told me my debit order has been sent back and they will proceed to their legal dept. Not knowing who the sms came from I called the number and they said because i didnt cancel the loan or inform them that i didnt want it I am responsible for the amnt outstanding. This is daylight robbery and I am disgusted how the poor and desperate are being exploited in this country.

    I dont realy understand how this works. but my question is, are this complaints actualy going to the people who will help or we just exchanging complaints between each other?
    Is Discovery Loans SA connected with the company, Discovery? if so we need to go to any Discovery offices and lodge our complaints perhaps the'll help or or atleast direct us to this scammers...oh ja, I also happen to be one of the victims, WE NEED TO PUT MORE EFFORT TO STOP WHAT THIS GUYS ARE DOING, PROFITING FROM SCAMMING PEOPLE.

    I was surfing the net for a loan. I completed some applications on line but never took them further. To my surprise on the 25th my bank account has been debited twice with the amount of R399.00. Who is L discovery - I never signed any documents or accepted any offers made to me.

    I request that my account be credited with the unauthorised deduction.

    Since when does a company charge you for applying for a loan? Is this not against the NCR Regulations?
