Hi there,

I see that you haven't made a payment for the question, but I'm going to assist you a little. If you want to ask a follow-up question, please make the required payment.

It sounds as if your bank profile was hacked and taken over by a thief, who used your profile to apply for the loan. If this is the case, and you are truly innocent, then you need to explain your side of the story to the SAPS or whoever is accusing you of these things.

You are innocent until proven guilty!
