Loan application

I applied for a loan on the 10th September with Capfin.

Uploaded documents as they requested. today is the 14th and no feedback received from them confirming the application.

Agents have been calling me since 11th September telling me the same story of a IT issue and promised that it would be resolved by yesterday 13 September.

Guess what, no feedback!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Misuse of personal information

After viewing ads on TV for Capfin loans, some friends suggested that we should go on a week's holiday so I decided I will apply with Capfin for a loan to take this holiday overseas.
It was the 5th July 2018, I did my telephonic application and capfin requested my statements from my bank.

The next day a consultant called me about the statements she had informed me that even though I earn 40k per month they cannot find a suitable date to load, however she said she will see what she could do and she will personally call me back, this went on for another 2 days the a new consultant calls me requesting statements again as they cannot find the other one. I then got it scanned and uploaded via the Capfin app.

On the 10th another consultant calls me to say that I need to go to a pep and scan my ID and upload statements again.

On the 13 th another consultant says the same thing.

Time jus ran out for my holiday so I decide to cancel my trip overseas due to this delay.

By the 18th I received over 15 sms informing me that I need to upload my docs again at a pep, did that twice in one day.

20th Consultant calls to inform me that my details have all been captured incorrectly.
So she will try to rectify the issue with her supervisor.

The next 2 or 3 days I get a call from another loan company saying that I applied for a loan with them which I have not done I am a male and the fraudulent applicant was female.

I just decided to cancel my application with Capfin as a lot has gone wrong in this time and I pray that nobody goes through such an ordeal.

I now have this fake person applying for stuff everywhere with my details.

Thanks to my application with Capfin.

Loan

I am very upset today. I paid two months upfront on installments in the hope that I will qualify for more cash. I qualified for R5000.00 3 months ago and never missed a payment. I am now left with one installment of R1162.89 after I made the two months payment this morning, but I was immediately declined for further credit.

I do not understand why i was declined, because nothing changed on my credit profile or my affordability, instead I got an increase on my salary at the end of July so I do not know why Capfin is declining me now.

But I would rather like them to then please reverse my money back into my account and stick to the normal debit orders if they do not want to give me more credit, because I need this money.

Thank you

Services

I have been having issues regarding my loans at Capfin, when I try rectify these on their web-site it kept on giving me an error.
So I spoke to a lady by Shafieqa she asked me to screen much and send an email to her Customer Services Team Leader Andile Calana. who is always busy to take my calls, but you can hear him on the background. I’m tired of being treated like shit by people who don’t want to do what they have been hired to do. I have sent numerous e-mails to Andile Calana and spoken to Thabisile , Funeka and other agents whore of not help to me and my issues. I was promised results and feedback in 24 hours that was on the 25 of July 2018 now it is way past that 24 hours. This makes me look at pep stores CAPFIN in a different perspective, this Andile so called Team leader is rude , as some point he hung up on me, This is really frustrating especially the level of professionalism or lack off. They are rude as if they are doing me a favour forgetting that they are paid to resolve and attend to us.

PAID UP LETTER

I settled my account in August 2017 and have not yet received my Paid up letter even after many attempts Calling and e-mailing them. Their supervisor Sbonelo is always busy when he has to take my calls, but you can hear him on the background. I’m tired of being treated like shit by people who don’t want to do what they have been hired to do. I have sent numerous e-mails to collections and spoken to Thabisile, Sbonelo , Funeka to name a few…all these people were of no help to me. This makes me look at pep stores in a different perspective. When I spoke to Ntobeko she told me she doesn’t know why I haven’t received it yet and I must send an e-mail to collections as if I haven’t done that. If they are unable to help why don’t they put telephone lines straight to collections if they do not answer on their behalf. This is really frustrating especially the level of professionalism or lack off. They are rude as if they are doing me a favour.

ludicrous Service

I Aghmat Stewart went to pep stores to take out a loan. I later called to cancel the loan and the consultant told me it was to late because it was already approved. I sent the money back the minute I received it. Later I called to confirm the closure of the account they picked up that I used the wrong reference. Veronica from the call centre insist that I am liable to pay over R700 penalty for late payment. I find that Service ludicrous to pay for money I didn't use and paid back straight away. also I tried to cancel before the money came in my account in the first place.

ludicrous service

I Aghmat Stewart went to pep stores to take out a loan. I later called in to cancel the loan and the consultant told me it was to late because it was already approved. When the money hit my account I paid it directly back. When I called to confirm the closure of the account they picked up that I used the wrong reference. Veronica from the call centre insist that I am liable to pay over R700 because of late payment. I've sent them the proof that I paid the money directly back. I find that Service ludicrous.

bad Service

I Aghmat Stewart went to pep stores to take out a loan. Later the day I phoned to cancel the loan and the consultant told me it was to late because it was already approved. Later the day when the money hit my account I paid it directly back. When I called to confirm the closure of the account. They picked up that I used the wrong reference. Veronica from the call centre insist that I now have to pay over R700 for late payment. I sent them the proof that I did pay on time but they insist I am liable for penalty. I find that Service ludicrous.

I keep on receiving sms's from capfin notifying me of non payment of loan which I have never took. I did not even know what capfin is about until I got irritated by their messages. At first I thought the message was not meant for me. Please rectify your mistake, if it is a mistake

Paid up account

Good day

I am very angry in the manner Capfin is holding my account . I want to refer this account to the ombudsman and understand what is going on. I have settled and paid up my account on the 9th of January 2018 and I was issues with a paid up letter and a statement that showed my account balance is on 00. In February Capfin then decided to do a debit order and I reversed it where they then issues a refund . I went to the nearest Pep and paid back the amount that was paid in my account. I think someone in the accounts department is busy with fraud as they keep debiting my account and I happen to reverse the account and keep paying back the refunds issues to me. I keep incurring interest on a closed account how do I stop this as it is annoying.

RUDE CUSTOMER SERVICE

Capfin should get rid of half their customer service host as almost non of them know what the meaning of customer service is! My last call with them, The guy I spoke to was extremely rude, literally shouted at me and speaking over me, i never got a Chance to speak and he was like "you need us its not the other way around" I was so stunned and told him to get his facts straight because I didn't call for a loan, I called because I've been receiving texts from them that I want to stop and he kept speaking on and on about I dont know what i'm talking about and to top it off, I wanted to speak to a manager and they told me i need to have a real query before i can speak to a manager. HOW PATHETIC

Nimble collections

Ive received a settlement on my capfin loan account that was handed over. I couldnt make a once off payment at pep stores but paid all outstanding monies as per the settlement letter. The amount was valid til the end of this month. The shouting and screaming from the nimble call was unacceptable. Ive paid .... wasnt aware it shouldve been once off. Ive even settled 2weeks prior to expire date. Please resolve this as i was not told to make a once off payment. 0726029093 my contact details.

RUDE call centre agent

In all my life, I have never dealt with a distugting company like this. My fiance took out a loan from capfin at the end of september last year. He lost his job and was unable to pay. I paid the account up to full in December. Situations forced me not to be able to pay again for a few months. I started paying again in May, June and July. Despite paying each month for the last 3 months, they still call numerous times a day harrasing my fiance and saying that he must pay the full amount immediately after he has made arrangements to pay them off the monthly installments. To make this worse , they are not sending him any statements so we do not know how much we still owe. Per our calculations we have already paid the loan amount in full and it should only be interest left and we should be basically done. The call centre agent I spoke to today(18/07/2017) at 10:23 a lady from capfin called from the number +27104934366 and the call lasted 1min 31 sec. I think her name is Kim, though I am so angry right now my mind is blurred. I answered as my fiance was busy .She asked if I could take a message. I agreed. I asked her that while I have her that while I have her on the phone, could she please arrange that they send him statements as he hasn't received any in a long time and we would like to know how much we owe. She immediately got very rude and wanted to hang up. I told her she is very rude. and she says she knows. I told her I will report her and she went to say that I should. This is anacceptable behaviour from a call centre agent who is suppose to give customer support. Yes I understand she can not give his information to me, but all I asked is that she email HIM his statements. Just because I pay the account doesn't mean he can not still get his statements on his email address. If I talked to my clients teh way she spoke to me, I would have been fired on the spot. CAPFIN will take action against her. How can they allow this. She deserves to be fired. Someone better contact us back in regards to this because we will not be leaving this here. The call can be traced and they can get our number.
