“Took a fee from my bank but getting refunded”

Written on: 24/07/2014 by JayleenMcKnight (1 review written)

They took a membership fee from my account and I don't remember ever having signed but, but I called and they advised on how to get a refund. I followed the process all online and was told that I would get an email and a text message to update me and someone would call me within 24 hours. I was reading on here then about how someone of you had loads of trouble with them and so I emailed to be sure that it was a full refund and it would be done within the 3 days. again I was told I'd get a… Read Full Review

“Worst company I've ever dealt with”

Written on: 22/07/2014 by AlishaStone (1 review written)

Where to start..this is a company that preys on desperate and vulnerable people. All it is is a site that allows you to compare potential loan providers, all the info they provide is online for free and other sites such as money saving expert. I fell prey to this comparing of companies and 3 days later £70 had been taken from my current account for the privilege. No way was I wasting anymore money so I emailed them rather than call the premium helpine- they say they will respond within 24… Read Full Review

“Misleading and Dishonest”

Written on: 11/07/2014 by DarkestD (2 reviews written)

Like many people I have fallen on hard times, so when I received what on the surface appeared to be a reasonable offer from Loans Direct I was happy to proceed with a short-term application on my mobile. The process I went through on my screen took me to a page where I was quoted a monthly repayment for a loan of £500, subject to a processing fee which I was willing to accept. When I accepted the fee I was then taken to a screen which offered me a selection of loans, this did not include the… Read Full Review

“STAY AWAY!!!!”

Written on: 10/07/2014 by Miya367 (1 review written)

Words can not explain how much to stay away from this company. How people can work there I do not kno ! I applied for a loan as it had said I had been accepted so I put in my details thinking I was having my loan except there is no loan! I phoned to get a refund I had to go online then send a poxy letter.. They do it to make the process longer so that you forget about having it back.. then they offer you a rubbish refund of 35 quid. I have been in touch with the ombudsman who will now be… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/07/2014 by Giulianac408 (1 review written)

Money was taken without full knowledge and then was refused a full refund even though no service had been received. To date it has taken over a month to even be offered a partial (and wholly ludicrous) refund. If anyone know if these issues can be taken though criminal proceedings then please advise… Read Full Review

“thieves, robbers just after your money ”

Written on: 01/07/2014 by tman5457 (1 review written)

Do not!, trust me on this! Go without you are better off. Once they take your money its hard to get it back and that if you get it back. this company is out to rob you off your money even if you ain't got nothing. I fell for the trap of a guarantee loan which i didn't get. the refund process just shows how much they wana keep hold of your money. Its been 3 weeks and I've yet to get my money back. You have to ring them first, then go online to request a refund and wait for their response… Read Full Review

loansdirect are the same people as loanwizard so beware of them too. the person who says they are good and clear must surely work for them.

“Don't enter bank details! ”

Written on: 29/06/2014 by 131Hawkins (1 review written)

They are not direct. They refer possible lenders. I only got high interest payday loans recommendations and spam calls. THEY WILL DEDUCT £65 FROM YOUR BANK ACCOUNT INSTANTLY AND WILL TAKE SNAIL MAIL AND WEEKS TO RECOVER ONLY £40 OF THAT. I NEVER FELT SO EXPLOITED. It takes a few days for the letter to get there and now they want me to wait 5-7 days to receive the refund. They took them seconds to get my money and weeks to give only part of it back. They should have made it clear that they… Read Full Review

“Disgusting”

Written on: 26/06/2014 by RD1967 (1 review written)

This organisation should be investigated and reported. I cancelled my "membership" which I didnt even realise I had signed upto the very next day. I emailed them as well as spoke to them and they confirmed that my "account" was now closed and no monies would be debited. My bank rang me 4 weeks later to say that this company had attempted to debit my account for 4 consecutive days. So I rang Loans Direct and they said that they hadnt. So my bank just randomly made this up did they? I have… Read Full Review

“Customer Support”

Written on: 26/06/2014 by Brett347 (1 review written)

I have found the support from Loans Direct UK awful. I have tried since 10/06/2014 to contact their customer support to cancel a membership that I do not want, its now 24/06/2014 and I've had no response. The contact number they display is just as useless as they're always experiencing high call volumes! They constantly send you text messages saying you've been approved and to log in but I don't even have any log in details to access an account so not very happy about them taking money for a… Read Full Review

I was a bit surprised when i saw that £54 had been taken from my account so i called the customer service team and was told that i joined the program to access a list of lenders. when i checked i had more than 10 different loan companies offering me a loan so i took the one that had the cheapest repayment rates and the funds were in my account the next day. its really quite a good service… Read Full Review
