Question posted in the Consumer Protection Law category relating to North West
Good evening, I applied for a a R20000 loan at Quick Loans in Potchefstroom. Unfortunately I paid the initiation fee of R1495, only to have them send me the loan contract, requesting more than R2000 transfer cost, which I did not pay. I dealt with Ms Vicki Fernandes and paid the initiation fee to an FNB account, in the name of L. Moloa. I reported them to the NCR. Is there any way of recovering the money, please? Also, I signed the contract, and only afterwards saw the extra costs. I told them I refuse further payments and that the contract is null and void. Their contract is drawn up by Anton de Beer Attorneys Durbanville. The loan company is registered NCRCP1963. To date I have no loan or further correspondence from them. Thank you.
