They could not even sign my book with thanks. The local kidderminster agent just wrote accounts closed .how rude not even a thank you. Take a tip off me it won't help build your credit ratings .they just want double there money. Steer we'll clear. They pray on people who a desperate … Read Full Review

“Hard to understand new policy ”

Written on: 08/07/2015 by FreddySimpson122 (1 review written)

We have been customers of Provident for over 12 years after being made redundant and getting into financial problems. The collector lady calls each week and we have never missed a payment. Up to now getting a loan from Provident has been an easy process but of late it has taken longer and longer whilst she tries to sort out the new gadget they have to use. Now she tells me that in future they will be checking credit records before granting further loans and she is getting lots of her customers… Read Full Review

“Reliable and friendly for those who need this type of...”

Written on: 22/01/2015 by Amanda3266 (1 review written)

Provident are probably the most well known of the doorstep lenders, I speak as I find and have had two loans via Provident. To be clear, they are only to be recommended if you cannot get a loan any other way as they are expensive. For examp,e a £500 loan paid over a year will work out at £17.50 (approx) a week and cost nearly £1000 by the time it's been repaid. If you have any other cheaper option then take it...I would. The two doorstep collectors I have had have been friendly and helpful… Read Full Review

“helped me out”

I took out a £250 loan last November and agreed to pay £8.75 a week for 52 weeks. yes the interest rate is very high and I am paying almost double what I borrowed but for people like me with bad credit, no job and three kids wanting expensive Xmas presents this loan was a lifesaver. due to personal problems I left my Xmas shopping far too late last year and provident were the answer. my rep is a lovely lady who is extremely understanding if something comes up and I am not going to be at… Read Full Review

“Terrible ”

Written on: 14/08/2014 by Anderseneq67 (1 review written)

Had a provident loan due to a lot going on at home and needed to get a loan to help out with a situation, the loan was quick and easy then it goes down hill!! they charge you almost the same ammount of the loan in interest, they don't update your credit file, nobody knows what's going on just awfull!! I paid mine with regular payments each month to the head office via my debit card and often had an agent turn up on my doorstep and not actually knowing themselves why they are there just shouting… Read Full Review

James1992's Comment

Written on: 10/04/2015

I have had only one bad experience in over nine years of having provident loans and that was soley down to the agent who was not customer friendly nor did she last with provident after I complained, provident loans are not handed out to just anyone without carefull consideration, as a customer you are provided with all the details of your loan before you signe for it, you signe having accepted all terms and conditions and are happy with the arrangement, so it really gets my back up when people like you then put silly reviews up on here complaining of high intrest and paying back double, well im pleased to say this is your fault and your doing no person from provident forced you, they just acted on what you asked them to do.. it sounds to me that you just wanted a fast amount of cash in your hands you got the loan signed for it spent the cash and then thought about it when you had to pay it back, moor fool you..if you cant afford it thyen don't do it. maybe next time you should consider bugeting your finances a little better then you would not have to write a review concerning a problem which you in fact created yourself, silly person...

“Disgusting Company and very inefficient.”

Written on: 21/07/2014

I had a loan with Provident and we kept up payments until we had to take out an IVA. They were included in it and for 4 yrs we got on with the IVA and kept our noses clean. Then the IVA finished as we paid it off with a lump payment which all creditors agreed to. Finally the IVA has terminated and a certificate of completion was issued. I went on my credit file through Experian and have only one creditor on there who has consistantly failed to get it updated or taken off. For 4 yrs Provident… Read Full Review

“Private & Confidential = NOT”

Written on: 13/05/2014

Terrible service after having loans for some time with this company I found that my collectors partner had told people I knew details about my loans. When I questioned this with the company they pretty much refused to do anything about it stating that their collectors are contractors so Provident is not responsible for protecting my information, their contactor is. Absolute joke of a company, stay away at all costs… Read Full Review

“Disgusting! ”

Written on: 25/01/2014

I took out a loan 5 years ago and I was paying off the loan on a weekly basis with an agent calling at the house. I moved house twice and got into a bit of difficulty but got back on track with the payments and the loan was paid off. I now have received a letter stating the original address I was living at when the loan was taken out, and it says I still owe £700! I was paying the agent outside the house a lot of the time and I wasn't getting the book signed so I have no record of the… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/01/2014

can you tell me what area you are in! we are in the same situation! its a joke I am furious it seems the agent was sacked for gross misconduct! but they do not believe us!! they are wrong! we even had loans opened up at the address in names of people we didn't know who they were!!! they are vile company. they said they were reporting us to the police but we are doing this against them! I am so so cross. They even wanted to come to the house and I said no but arranged a meeting at the local CAB! they have accused me of being obstructive.

I have taken out a loan with this company and as it was through a work colleague who decided he didn't have to give me a payment book he also never gave me a receipt so now.

“Fail to call back when promised and "DON'T DO FLATS"”

Written on: 15/11/2013

Applied online on Monday with my full address (including flat number), received a call from a "manager" named Gemma who agreed to arrange for an agent to see me on Thursday at 1930 but would call to confirm. No callback received so I called and spoke to Ronnie who promised that Gemma would call back. No call back received, so again, I called them and this time spoke to Gemma again, "No problem", she said "Our agent Sadia will visit at 1930 on Thursday. Received a call from Sadia at 1730… Read Full Review

“dodgy phone calls”

Written on: 25/10/2013

I had a call from them today from a man calling himself 'James' he informed he was from the inland revenue and then without checking to whom he was talking gave the name and address of a customer. Needless to say it was not me. He then continued to begin to discuss the debt. When he realised that he had made a major error he was quite angry at being caught out … Read Full Review

“when in need”

Written on: 17/10/2013

Great for getting out of unexpected holes. Interest high, but your agent will explain the lenght and weekly payment To be made. The only thing I would say not fair is that in england and the north of ireland one can put loans together as one, while in eire our loans are taken out seperately. I think we should be allowed to do the same thing. I like the way that the agent comes to the house. In my case its handy for me and it means that I pay my agent every week. If you get into trouble… Read Full Review
