FinChoice South Africa Loan taken up

Good day

I Tylo Goosen [protected] took up a loan with u guys last month and as per the sms before taking up the loan I was told I would start paying end September, so with this did a application via phone call, so the gentleman who assisted read out that I would start paying end August and I told him I what the sms said hence my application, he put me on a long hold and confirmed that the deduction would start end September. I called in your offices last week to check that the deduction would really take place as per agreement over the phone I was advised differently. The lady who assisted me said she would escalate the matter but till today there is no response. Today I received a sms stating that the installment is due this month, which is not what I agreed to. Please refer to the recording on the day of my application and advise if I am wrong in wanting what was promised to me, how is this fair from a service provider lying to a customer misleading.

I'm disappointed as I have never experienced such poor service from you before but I do believe that if this bad client service continues this will be my last time doing business with You.

Frustrated

Tylo Goosen

Desired outcome: Do what was promised

FinChoice South Africa Installments and to arrange making an offer on the outstanding amounts

So before making a decision by taking a loan at Finchoice make sure that you won't be in a financial crisis as they don't want to make arrangements by paying less than the installment is a month and will harassing you every day till you pay and they don't come back on emails when ask tnat it must be on email but only do it over the phone even if you change your information on the Finchoice login page it does not help at all as tbey dont want to make arrangements even if they say they think of every one during Covid-19 this is the biggest joke of all and the call center is a waste of time when you try to phone as no one can assist you. I have ask then on the 25th of July to come back to me and no one comes back to me but now on the 4th of August they are quick to phone and ask when they will get the installments and you can not pay the money in their account tbat is provided by them as tbey dont takes it as an installment.

Desired outcome: I would like to know if they will be able to approve the amount I can pay at the moment

FinChoice South Africa Account access

I have an account with Finchoice. I week after my account was activated my husband applied and was also approved.

1. At first my first installment was supposed to have gone off only end June but was taken immediately end May.

2. I cant sign into my account. My husband can sign in but using my cell number and his password?

We have been calling for assistance and been told the supervisor needs to call us but this never happens.

I drove to the office in Wynberg and spoke to Zac and explained everything. Still no help because we need to call into. He gave a number should we struggle so he can assist but not once this number was answered. I have called the call center again last Friday being told they don't see any notes but will get supervisor to call us. Well nothing until today.

Please assist with this.

Desired outcome: I need to be able to access my account on cell and internet.

FinChoice South Africa Refusal of refund

Good Day,

I trust this email finds you well.

Full name: Nicole Asbodeen Manuel

ID Number: [protected]

Contact Number: [protected] 70

Email address: [protected]@gmail.com

I would like to make a formal complaint against FinChoice.

I took out a personal long term loan with FinChoice in August / September 2021.

I then received a Consolidation Loan from Nedbank in early October 2021.

The Consolidation Loan was used to settle loans I had, including the personal long term loan.

This was paid on 13th Otcober 2021.

I have provided proof of payment to FinChoice in October / November 2021.

They were adamant the payment was not received, even after Nedbank confirmed it was paid.

There was back and forth correspondence (I have all the emails and chats). FinChoice made me feel as a liar and a thief.

The other loans paid off with this Consolidation Loan was no issue at all.

I have sent FinChoice every possible document I have, and yet they say it's not enough.

Debit Orders continued going off until March 2022.

I went into volunteeraly debt counseling in Feb / March 2022.

I then found out by the debt counselor that my loan was paid off with FinChoice.

FinChoice never advised me of this.

In fact, they stopped responding to my emails for a while.

The call centre is giving me the run around as well.

I refunded the debit order that went off for March 2022.

I was then advised the loan was settled in March 2022, and to get the rest of money back, I have to provide them with a proof of payment for March 2022.

I cannot provide this as it doesn't exist.

Nedbank has confirmed that the loan was paid up in October 2021 already.

FinChoice no longer replies to my messages.

I went into the HomeChoice showroom to seek assistance, the lady working the advised that she can see on the system I sent proof or payment in October 2021 and that the loan should've been updated as paid up back then.

At this moment, the only feedback I getting is from the lady in the showroom. FinChoice doesn't respond to my emails and the call centre is of no help at all.

I am hoping you can help me with this, as I have been waiting for my money for almost a year now.

Kindly let me know of I should send documents to you as well.

May you have a wonderful day.

- Nicole

Desired outcome: My money to be refunded

FinChoice South Africa Settle my account

I asked on the 5March 2022 for a settlement amount off my 6month loan. I received it and settle it in full. I email proof off payment and they replied back that they can't except it because I must send it in PDF Format. I send it again in PDF Format, still they didn't except it. I send so much proof of payments and call 3 times, still my loan is not settled by them.

First I call, the lady told me I must email the proof of payment to another email adress. Some days later I call again and they told me they received the payment and they will come back to me.

It's been a week later, I call again and they said they didn't received my payment, I must email my proof of payment. I do so and WOW everything from the beginning, they didn't except my proof.

FinChoice South Africa Call center - continuous harassment

Good day. Please note Finchoice is continously harassing our business. I have a business line for a psychology practice your company keeps calling looking for a person who no longer has this number. It is not only going against the POPIA act but you cause business interruption, and patients need to contact us. You are harassing us and just changing your number. If this is not resolved the next time I ask for my number to be removed our medical practice will proceed with Legal Action.

Regards
Stephanie

Desired outcome: My number removed

FinChoice South Africa Funeral Policy Payout

My name is Liezel Jonker [protected]. I have been paying my funeral policy at finchoice for the past years now. My father passed away who was on the policy. I have been sending the documents they said I must send twice, but no communication from their side. I have been talking to their incompetent staff. A few hundreds spend on airtime wasted.

FinChoice South Africa Unpaid funeral policy claim

After the sudden passing of my mother in law who held a Finchoice Funeral Policy on Sunday the 15 August 2021, we contacted Finchoice regarding submitting a claim on her funeral policy the following Monday morning. Needless to say neither I nor any of my family members could reach a human soul, except a Pre recorded voice telling you to please hold then get cut off immediately. This continued until Saturday the 21st when someone finally answered and directed us to submit documents a, b, c etc etc to fc - funeralclaims.co.za. We emailed all the relevant documents and believed our claim was being attended to. Which was a falsity because up until today the 3rd day of September 2021, we have neither heard nor received any communication from Finchoice regarding the burial claim. My family was relying heavily on the R50K payout to pay for our mum's funeral, but this was not to be. After she had been laying in the government mortuary for 12 consecutive days, we lost all hope and went to a local loanshark for the funds which allowed us to lay her to rest yesterday morning. We are now deep in debt and even more deeply shocked and saddened by their lack of empathy for their consumers. My mother in law has been Faithfully paying for this funeral benefit since 2012 and this and to make matters worse, Finchoice once again DEBITED HER BANKING ACCOUNT ON THE 25TH OF AUGUST AS PER USUAL, EVEN THOUGH THEY WERE INFORMED OF HER PASSING. WE AS CONSUMERS NEED URGENT AND DRASTIC HELP IN DEALING WITH FINCHOICE

Desired outcome: We desperately need to receive the benefits paid for

Reading your story made me feel like I was wondering about in the twilight zone. Your situation, dates and experiences with these people mirror mine word for word, it's utterly ridiculous...What shall we do? Where shall we go? To whom must we turn for assistance...

FinChoice South Africa Debt restructuring status

I was under debt review 2019/2020 and received my clearance certificate on 15 January 2021. I have been emailing [protected]@finchoice.co.za three times informing them to update my status as I am not longer under debt review. I see on my credit report that Finchoice still states 'under debt restructuring.

To date, I have not had feedback nor have they read my e-mail. I emailed Finchoice on 27 May 2021; 6 June 2021 and 14 June 2021.
1. Account No. 6986065
2. Account No. 6909995 (revolving credit account)
3. Account No. 6909995 (personal cash loan)

I am seriously not impressed. Please can you get back to me on this. Much appreciated.

Desired outcome: Debt restructuring status removed

FinChoice South Africa Funeral claim

My name is Sylvia lindiwe Buthelezi. I applied for my claim for my late father, before I sent the documents to [protected]@finchoice.co.za I called to ask which documents were to be sent. I sent 14 documents of which they were in a PDF format, but sadly I got stupid emails of demanding documents of which I have sent before. It's being 72 hours and it hasn't paid up, I owe the undertaker money and my employer money for food. Worse part is that the undertaker withheld cars because of not getting any payment, I had to drive 7kilos to thier branch, PREGNANT and frustrated to go try and convince him to release the cars and that he will get his money buy showing him emails from u guys of which I was so irritated because the papers that were requested were already sent and finchoice was to payoff my claim. Please pay of my claim so that I can pay these people. After the claim has been done I want nothing to do with finchoice. Your employees are incompetent and useless. They have not been useful to me. I have been put through shameful experience of which seemed liked I ddnt insure my father. And if the claim is still not being paid, am taking this matter to my lawyers. TOTALLY UNEXCEPTIONAL

FinChoice South Africa Loan settlement letter

My loan has been settled on the 15 May 2020, but on the June 15, 2020 Finchoice continued to debit the installment amount. I made several attempts to get my money back but this did not go anywhere. Ive lost count of how many times I called Finchoice in trying to resolve this, clearly they are not willing to assist me. Each every time when Im called they told the matter has been escalated to the supervisors. Till this day nothing has been done. The last Finchoice consultant I spoke to told me that she can not see anything from the system and that no money will be refunded because I still have arrears. When other 3 consultants told me acknowledged that this is a bookeeping error from the Company side and that they will come back to me. Till today. I have a very bad experience with this Company and will never ever have anything to do with Finchoice again.

FinChoice South Africa Personal loan account

Dear Sir/Madam,

I was called by 2 of your consultants regarding my account that is in arrears by a month, to make payment arrangements. I did acknowledge the arrears with both consultants and arranged to make the payment by the end of April 2020(30 April 2020).

I then requested Finchoice banking details to make a direct transfer of funds into Finchoice account but to my surprise, none of the 2 ladies couldn't provide me with the details and insisted that I should pay via debit order because it's the only convenient method of payment. One of the consultants by the name of Lee-Anne even offered me an easypay acc for me to pay at one of the retail shops (which might be affected by the lockdown).

I did explained to the lady that I can't go and queue at one of those shops on a month end, during lockdown, hence the reason for requesting the banking details. Lee-Anne started arguing with me and accusing me of refusing to make payment arrangements.

I just want to put this on record that I'm unsatisfied with the way I was treated by your consultants and feel the treatment was unfair and unacceptable.

Can the customer complaint management please resolve this issue and revert back to me with a solution?

My cellphone number is: [protected]
My email address is : gugu.[protected]@ruralfreestate.co.za

FinChoice South Africa No refund received

Good day.

It was on the 11/12/2019, first phone call made to Finchoice requesting a refund as I did a debt consolidation through my employer. They overpaid finchoice and the lady I spoke to advised that it will take about three to four days (excluding weekends) for the refund to be processed. Then on the 17/12/2019 phoned again as there was no refund into my bank account still the lady said the same thing, few days later phoned again I think the lady's name was Anita advised the same and advised that te two previous consultants did not update my account hence the delay. Three to four days passed again on the 22/12/2019, phoned again it was on a Sunday a lady by the name of Wendy advised that the requests by the previous three consultants were rejected as they need a proof of payment from me. I was livid as no one previously had mentioned of same and why I could only hear from the fourth person, nobody contacted me to advise about such. How is it possible speaking to different people in the same company and they provide with different answers. Totally unprofessional and ineffecient, only then I spoke to another Wendy the next day who promised to phone me back and never did. Now have logged a request from my employer to send a consolidation letter in order to forward to Finchoice. Given all the years being their client and now there's a credit amount in my account they couldn't even follow up or do the refund. Never will I do business with them again so disappointed with them that they didn't have the expertise to resolve my query first one than to wait this long. Can be contacted on [protected]
