ITC not updated

I have tried for days since the 30th August 2019 to get three accounts I have with finchoice updated with ITC all old closed accounts since 2017, to date I have only managed to get three Credit reference agencies (CRA's) updated, with alot of calls been ,made back and forth to Finchoice and the CRA's. it was the most daunting experience ever. Now I have one CRA left to update which is compuscan, I called compuscan and they have advised that they did receive the instruction to close accounts however this was not clear instructions. They have responded to finchoice asking for further details but no response. I called Finchoice and asked them to check up on this, yet they ask me to go back to the CRA and find out which email address they have responded to. I called Compuscan back and the consultant questioned why they would ask me to do such a thing as all they need to do is check for responses on my account from Compuscan. This is becoming so frustating accounts that were paid up months ago, have not been updated. As a part of my consumer right Finchoice was supposed to be updating information with the CRA's one a month, clearly this has not happened. I am not in a position where I am looking for finance but these closed accounts are showing on my profile as opened and affecting my affordability and credit score. Finchoice have no idea what stress they are causing me, by making this so difficult. I keep getting through to so many people at the call centre, yesterday I was promised a call back from the Supervisor Maurice, who never called me back. He seems to be busy everytime I call. I cannot get any joy from this, all I want is my details to be updated with all four CRA, and right now Compuscan has not.

Paid settlement

Hi

Ive been emailing finchoice since forever and there's just no response. I paid up my full loan settlement, but they continued to take a debit order from my account and there's still money reflecting on my account. Can I just go to the bank to reverse my money back to my account as they don't respond to my emails?

Settlement paid and it’s not reflecting

I requested a settlement amount form Finchoice and NRB RISK Legal department and NRB RISK respond on the 06 May 2019 with an amount of R17194.06. Which I told them it can’t be because I paid every month.
They respond again on the 06 May 2019 with an amount of R14171.11. They supply me with a banking details I had to pay the money over to: BANK-FNB
ACCOUNT HOLDER: NRB RISK
ACCOUNT NUMBER: 62108580392
BRANCH CODE: 253305
REFERENCE NUMBER: 63222174001
On that same day I made a payment of R14171, 11 into that account. I did requested a paid-up letter from the Legal Collections Team Leader Mr. Frans Ragmat and reply that I did requested it from the client which Finchoice.
On the same Finchoice debt review department give me an outstanding balance of R7363.49. My reply to them was to send the proof of pay I paid to NRB RISK.
Now somehow there must be a communication problem because I paid but can’t get a paid-up letter and the amounts in question is not the same.
However, when I contact Finchoice, I was told my account was handed over to their debt review department and still reflects that no payment was made and account was not settled. How long does it take to reflect that the account was settled? I have been emailing Finchoice and NRB RISK but they won’t or can’t give me an answer where these founds has going. What I want to know was the real amount to be paid? Please assist
Thank you

Kind regards

I tried emailing finchoice 5 times and had no respose. i then decided to phone with regards to my loan. the only answer I get is the system doesnt aloow... I am sorry but have we stooped so low that we cant think for ourselves and need to rely on systems???? surely there are managers that we as customers can talk to with a little more knowledge and replies... this is just really poor service!

Settlement paid and it’s not reflecting

To whom it may concern

I requested a settlement letter which I received. I then paid the settlement amount in full using my mobile banking app, and the money was deducted from my bank account. However, when I log in to Finchoice my account still reflects that no payment was made and account was not settled. How long does it take to reflect that the account was settled? I have been emailing Finchoice but I receive no reply. Please assist

Thank you

Settled Account but stiil deducting moneyt

On the 3rd December i called one of your consultants and i ask to email me the Settlement Quote for my two Finchoice loan account which is the Mobi Money and the 6 Month Flexi account. They did send me the Settlement Quote for both accounts and i made the full payment on the 4th December for both accounts according to the settlements Quotes given. On the 24th December Finchoice deducted R1 576.49 from my account which i do not know why they deduct it. I have attached the Settlement Quotes as well as Proof of Payments.

I've been calling for this since the 05 December but they keep on transferring my calls untill they drop them, i tried to get Statement but it doesn't allow me to see my statements.

Bring back the money

Good day
I had an account with finchoice, I paid them very well even extra by R100.
By the time I wanted a reloan I was told no money for me and I don't qualify.
No problem but where is my R100 as they said it shall be paid back to me.
They can keep their loan but bring back the money, simple.

Finchoice - Settlement Amount Paid off

I have paid off my account on the 22/10/2018 on the 25/10/2018 the debt order run again. I phoned and ask on the 25 to return the funds, the agent then informed me that the fund will be back in my account on the Friday Or Monday. I phone again on the Monday and ask why the funds is still not back in my account. I was told by the team leader that he will ask them to speed up the payment, and that the funds will be back in my account on the 31/10/2018. When I check this morning still no funds, Then I phoned again. I spoke to Warren who will not give me his Surname. He then assure me will speed up the service. I really think that by treating clients this way is very disrespectful. Please pay back the money. I need this funds back very urgently, for me to settle other accounts. I need to pay other accounts before the 1st on Nov. This is now causing me to stand in sham because Finchoice did not do what they had promised me.

No feedback/Harassment calls

Money has been deducted from my bank account 2 to 3 times per month I have been retrenched in August 2018 after numerous conversations emails - necessary documentation sent I still get 6 - 10 phone calls per day very very rude consultants especially from this number that phone me this morning 021 003 6928 @9:40 on 30.10.2018. I have extra bank costs for the debit orders that is returned. I would definitely NOT taken out a loan from Finchoice if they I knew that this will be the service and support you are getting.

Balance stays the same

My balance stays the same and I have been paying an installment of R529 per month for 10 months now.

I skipped one month because my debit order was never deducted and there was more than enough money in my account.

My balance in May(First and last statement I received by email) was R7124.68 and my balance as on 16/10/2018 is R6529.96.

How is it possible that I have paid 4 installments that adds up to R2116.00 my balance went down by only R594.72.

Re: Assignment 1

i took out a consolidation loan with fnb and they sent me proof that finchoice was paid the money owed. they still call me every day because i reversed the money they shouldnt have debited in the first place. why is it taking long for them to update their stuff or is it just a stunt to harass and abuse customers. i am very disappointed because they only give you one email which does not even seem to be attended to.fin acc 4744737

About my account with them

Ihave an account with Finchoice, I pay my account every month,only in October last year I reversed due to serious problem,I called them and arranged how am goner pay the interest,they deducted the money as we agreed,since January 2018 up to now nobody called me telling me that am behind to pay my arrears and it was only 1months and they deducted the money 4,3 months,now they said am owing them 3000 plus, my question is how they didn't informed me, the lady I spoke with, she said it's not their responsibility to call,what is their job if they can't informed a customer about their account,what surprised me more is that in one month if they didn't get the payment they call within 5 days,but now it's almost 8months,and am almost to finish to pay my account they come with this story of arrears,need help and am angry cuz its really unfair

debit orders - continues

Finchoice debited my account thrice for payment they've already received.
I had to beg for refunds and instead of doing refunds they debit my account again, thrice.
Now i'm in areas for my other debit orders because of their incompetence
They don't even care about the bank changes that has now accumulate. All u get from them is I clearly understand.
They don't understand. I always thought they were good at what they are doing but clearly not.
I will not ever recommend their service to friends and family.
Finchoice please sort out your accounts dept and pay for my bank charges.

Finchoice

My mother is been paying for a funeral plan that we are struggling with claim and their call centre give us some attitude unfortunately we can't do anything since we submitted documents on 24 if July till today no payment we where told Monday but nothing I gave been calling them since 25 .I don't advise anyone to take their funeral plan cause their family will have to borrow money to burie them while they paid funeral plan monthly .

This people they taking advantage when policy holder die they they told her they pay within 48 hour when they give her the policy just to get money. Today we have to pay loans . The call center manager Musa ddnt want to talk to me since s/he got nothing to do about this.

People be aware rather take policy to and insurance that is know done ppl who are new.
