Question posted in the General Law category relating to Eastern Cape

Good day ,I was contacted  by maxlaw  that they will be  assisting  me  with a loan ,I ask where they got my contact  ,they said credit bureau, they told me I was pre vetted that I just needed  to finalize  the application. 

Just after giving them my banking  information  ,I got a debit check of R710  from my  bank  to approve which I  rejected. 

I immediately  went to check what is maxlaw all about and I noticed  that it is for debt relief.

I am not under judgment or review, I do not even have  arreas,so I  then called  them back to cancel  but they  just kept  me hanging  on the phone.

Please  assist I do not need  their service.

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, even if it is R150 or R200.

You need to ensure that NO debit orders are allowed to go off your account. You also need to ensure that you do NOT sign any documents with them. Also, you need to do a credit search on your name each month to ensure that they don't list you for something that you never intended.

Att. Patrick 

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!
