Question posted in the Consumer Protection Law category relating to KwaZulu-Natal
Good Morning to you
I hope you are able to assist me please. I keep receiving threatening emails from a company Compucredit, which is a debt collecting company telling me that I owe them R2650.00 for a loan which I applied for online. I have never received any loan, they told me that they sent a messenger of court to attach my goods. I keep asking for an invoice and proof of the loan, but they refuse to send this to me.
Kindly advise what i should do.

Hi there Pauline,
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, even if it is R150 or R200.
Ask them to give you a copy of the summons, and a copy of the default judgment, and tell them that you want to see these documents to give to your lawyer. I doubt that they have sent any sheriff, because I doubt that they even took the matter to court.
Please remember this is a dialog if you have follow-up questions please make the required deposit, then use the REPLY button and ask your further question. I would like to continue assisting you, but I need to concentrate on people who make deposits for their questions - they get serviced first!
