“Unhelpful”

Written on: 22/12/2014 by PJW1967 (1 review written)

Having had my loan since July 2011, and only several months left to finish the loan term, I have found myself out of work and struggling to make the monthly repayments. I have missed no payments at all, and when calling Amigo for help........guess what? They still want their full payment. In short, I have re0paid £7717 on a £5000 loan.......and they aren't prepared to help. Amigo are just in it to make money (42.6 interest), and not help in any other way, as they like to portray! Ordinarily… Read Full Review

“Dogy AMIGO method border line to illegal”

Written on: 04/12/2014 by Mikexxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (1 review written)

They target people who cant get credit and who really should not have credit and get them to supply a guarantor details. Thats a risky deal for whever is stupid enough to sign up as they are agreeing to be fully liable for any debt. Someone supplied my details as a guarantor and AMIGO tried it on by sending me a letter stating that I had sign some fictitious online document. I have spent all afternoon reporting AMIGO to the FCA, the Police and Action Fraud over this matter. These are, just… Read Full Review

“Different Class Company Amigo Loans”

Written on: 28/11/2014 by hzBolton285 (1 review written)

Well I have an ok credit rating but couldn't get a loan. My lady and I live together in rented accommodation and she is NOT a homeowner but has an excellent credit rating. I applied on line and was immediately accepted but needed guarantor- either homeowner or excellent credit rating. As we live together I thought it would be a problem but 2 hours after giving the info the cash is in the bank! Sure, the APR is higher than a bank but now I can really build my credit rating and hopefully a year… Read Full Review

“Top-up”

Written on: 12/10/2014 by 291Christian (1 review written)

I found myself short of cash just before I was due to go on holiday after an unexpected car repair bill. I already had a loan with Amigo, so thought I would borrow some more.Whilst the outcome was good, I got my loan, I was a little disappointed that after paying for 2 years with no defaults that I had to change guarantor as they no longer met the criteria. Although the advert says no credit checks on me, just some-one who will be a guarantor, a credit check was done.All said, the staff were… Read Full Review

“I'm a very impressed guarantor!”

Written on: 11/10/2014 by DamariChristie (1 review written)

Having been asked by my son to be a guarantor I researched Amigo, media financial reviews were positive and matched the information on Amigo's website. I had a 30 minute call with a friendly & thoroughly professional young lady to ensure I understood what being a guarantor meant & that I was in a financial position to take on the loan myself if the worst happened. Once accepted, the service is amazingly quick with texts and emails giving updates to both the borrower and guarantor. I… Read Full Review

“So, saw an advert which got me thinking. Checked...”

Written on: 30/09/2014 by Breen456 (1 review written)

So, saw an advert which got me thinking. Checked website, liked what I read.. Found a guarantor (phew!!!!!) and made the application. This is where it (rightly so) gets a little fun. What the website doesn't tell you is that they interrogate you and your guarantor (in a good way) as they perform an affordability test on both of you, so be warned.. But this is all good natured and they are VERY friendly so don't be put off. This has to happen, you haven't been credit scored remember. 15… Read Full Review
