“Online info”

Written on: 29/06/2017 by Hollandeg97 (1 review written)

There is absolutely no way that I would divulge my online banking log on details to anyone let alone a 3rd party so called loan company. They do NOT need your online details to set up your account or process your loan application so the question is, 'WHY?' Best avoid and stay safe!… Read Full Review

“Absolute Joke”

Written on: 23/12/2016 by Kennedyh336 (1 review written)

Safetynet Took money from my bank to repay my loan every single time my wages/tax credits went in. Which wasn't too much of a problem. Until recently. I have had to have time off work due to a family member being ill so a friend very kindly gave me some money for my Christmas food shopping which safety net took from my account less than 12 hours later. I borrowed the money straight back but of course due to interest I was £20 down. I emailed them and their reply was basically "nothing we can… Read Full Review

“Full access to your online banking !”

Written on: 20/12/2016 by McAllister1967 (1 review written)

I completed the online application for a small £100 loan. I didn't mind giving my bank account sort code, account number ond card number, but when they asked for my online banking password and memorable information, WHAT? giving them full access to my bank account ! er, no thanks, I'll give it a miss. They shouldn't even be allowed to ask for that BY LAW in my opinion… Read Full Review

“Frustrating!”

Written on: 13/05/2016 by Softlad_47 (1 review written)

I had an error message today telling me they can't connect to my bank. They can take the money back easily enough though! I had an email back to say there were technical issues and I should log into my bank account to check if they required any additional information, which of course they didn't. 2 payments taken in a fortnight which has left me short until the end of the month and unable to borrow the credit increase I got only this morning! I think I may be paying these back and getting rid… Read Full Review

Hi, it's frustrating now because they took a payment yesterday which left me with nothing in my account. I had no choice but to borrow the money back and now I can't even do that. Not exactly what the facility claims to do.

Filled in the application form and complete the bank detail section and was told my application was being processed! 4 hours passed and still processing so I telephoned them to see what was going on ! There's a problem accessing your bank account , so I did it all again and waited several hours and again nothing !

“Absolutely first class”

Written on: 21/03/2016 by KarsynCoughlin (1 review written)

Although i was very dubious about giving bank details at first, i decided to give it a try.And they really do only use it to view yourbalance!!! after months of doing lots of overtime at work which meant my income was higher than normal ( in which time my credit was increased), i stopped because of health issues. Safetynet noticed this and REDUCED my limit!! no straight away....they actually emailed me to say they would the next month!! to me, this is a responsible lender, not one just after… Read Full Review

Even though I had regular money going in.I was constantly hit with late charge Bills.Reluctantly I have been surfing the web looking for a small loan or even a credit card. This is something I really didn't want to do But felt I had no choice.That's when I stumbled across safety net.
