“AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!”

Written on: 18/04/2018 by ImmanuelCochran361 (1 review written)

Just to be clear this review is for: Castle Finance Direct and is a GENUINE review. Do not fool for anything they send via email or say over the phone. You don’t owe them anything, they aren’t a company. I don’t know why the site hasn’t been taking down. Also the reviews saying they are great are most likely fake. Probably generated by their workers using the review centres anonymous option which I have also used. It’s that easy!! Read everything before you put your bank account… Read Full Review

Bitchcraft666's reply to Zarvin10's Comment

Written on: 29/03/2018

Zarvin10 is right, all the reviews praising this company never respond to comments, hmm what a coincidence. i thought it too good to be true I was instantly accepted. Disgusting to prey on vulnerable people in need of cash I'm so thankful I came to look at reviews before entering my bank details as I so nearly fell for it in desperation for some cash. Please AVOID at all costs! Something needs to be done about this company's underhanded practice. A 79 quid charge to offer a brokering service with no guarantee of acceptance cannot be justified under any circumstances.

Written on: 21/03/2018 by Demetrius461 (1 review written)

They make out that you are filling out an application for a loan but it’s only to charge you for them looking up loan companies for you. No one needs this service you can find it in seconds by yourself. They then take £79.00 pounds from your bank account. They send you a email saying you agreed to the terms and conditions but they know full well the reader thought it was for a loan. Preying on people not concentrating properly because they are desperate for money. Really low, it’s criminal… Read Full Review

Why would you pay £79.00 to see loan rates when they are on the internet for everyone to see ?

You'd need to call your bank and report it as fraud.
My bank has just called me regarding this company and they've now blocked them. They didn't get any money from me as I thought I was only searching for a loan.
Just tried emailing Castle Finance Direct and even the email bounced back.

Really, everyone including myself have experienced them as a sham, taking money from ours accounts for admin fees,for sending loan companies websites or names which you can find on the web in seconds, there was no loan involved, but they make out “they”are the loan company when you fill out the application, then after in small writing they state their terms and conditions, preying on vulnerable people in need of money, they know you are desperate and not reading small print, morally wrong, disgusting company. It is NOT made clear.

“£79 administration costs”

Written on: 22/12/2017 by 448Jones (1 review written)

I applied for loan online, didn't go through with the loan but got charged £79 costs, I phoned them up as I was within my 14 day cancellation period and they was more then happy to refund my money as direct transfer back into my account within 2 hours of making the call, so my personal experience with castle finance has not been bad as such, all I can recommend to others is that you make sure your within your 14 cancellation period if trying to back out. … Read Full Review

Mine was 5 days and they emailed back a automated response saying you agreed to terms and conditions. “ NO REFUND “.You were lucky because no one has been refunded in 14 days and there are hundreds of reviews.
