I need the money for a car and thanks to that i have my freedom and mobility. They have also offered me a top up loan in the future which i may go for… Read Full Review

“STAY WELL CLEAR ”

Written on: 26/06/2012

Wentworth are the worst people to deal with, do not give them any money as they will NOT come through!!!!! They take your money and thats the last you hear from them. They pretend they send you mail, which you will never receive. Trying to get your money back is another story completely: Mine - Sent letter as instructed on 11th May registered post, spoke with Collette Masters on 8th June and she confirmed letter received on 14th May and refund due in 30 days. Called today 26th June and was… Read Full Review

complain to financial ombudsman services, tell them EVERY bit of the story. Ring them....they may take the complaint over the phone. I promis you , the refund will be done AND you ARE ALLOWED to ask for compensation and distress. I would suggest to ask for £150 which seems quite reasonable !!!
Don't despear. I have won EVERY BATTLE to financial institutions so far. NEVER LOST becuase I kept EVERY detail secure and every proof I rang them with time, duration of call, name of the person (what department he/she works) and ofcourse I recorded ALL my calls (as well as they (BY LAW ) must record every call they receive/make to customers).
YOU WILL SUCCEEED.
Just listen to my advise all people here!
I have applied for a loan myself with wentworth but when they asked me for money!


EVERYONE HERE SHOULD READ THIS!!!!!


0.0001% of the companies like brokers for unsecured loans etc. Eventually, if you ahve PERFECT credit, then you get a loan.....at 29.99%APR ?!? RUBBISH !!!

Summarising, everyone who gets stuck with them , ring them on a separate call and COMPLAIN to Customer services, ask for a Complaint Log Number , take the name of the person/. IF YOU CAN record your calls (Iphone apps are lots out there that allows you to do that AND Ombudsman TAKE THAT as a proof!) . HIT them where it hurts. Their pocket. (they make around £10.000 a day rpofit sometimes!).

“Wentworth were well good.”

Written on: 20/05/2012 by Dilleepickle (1 review written)

You know what, i only wanted to borrow 6 grand and for the life of me everywhere i went i was turned down and because i had taken a loan out a few years earlier and had got a few lake payments on it and because of this i was stuffed. I saw Wentworth advertising online advertising loans for people who had been a bit stuffed in the past. They contacted me and told me that before i could proceed there was a brokers fee payable. I paid this fee and got my 6 grand loan in about nine days i would… Read Full Review

“Lying charlatans ”

Written on: 18/05/2012 by AbrahamStone (1 review written)

DO NOT USE. I rang up this company do get some information about their services. They asked for my bank account details to "verify my identity", I gave them what was asked for (as I am clearly a fool and thought that without the security code they wouldn't be able to use them). I told the person that I was dealing with that I was just shopping around and would be back in touch if I wanted to use them. I was most surprised when without my permission or knowledge they removed £69.95 from my… Read Full Review

I had the same expereience with them after receiving a call at the end of April they took my bank details and I asked that the money not be taken until 4th May. I then found I was able to borrow some money froma relative and spent three days trying to contact them but couldn't get through was always placed at number 20 in the queue. They then took the money out of my account on 30th April withough my authorisation. I called again this time first thing in the morning and was told I had to write which I ddi on 1st May - still haven't had anything back, called a 01753 number yesterday and was told that I would get my money back but it could take up to 30 days. I have just been reading another forum and there are so many complaints about them - DO NOT USE WHATEVER! How they are still trading I do not know.

“Decent firm to deal with”

Written on: 17/05/2012 by wizardoz980 (1 review written)

I found their sales people very decent and honest about everything. On the whole i was satisfied with Wentworth Direct Finance and i'm awarding them 3 stars. John in customer services was helpful as well and helped me all the way through in finding me the right loan that was perfect for my circumstances. I went for payment protection because it was very good value for money… Read Full Review

“Fair play to Wentworth”

Written on: 15/05/2012 by swanlake7788 (1 review written)

Wentworth gave me a ray of hope and a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. There were plenty of things wrong in my life. A recent divorce, money problems which all had to be sorted. The amazing thing is i was was turned down by everyone else and wentworth was the only company that could help me at a reasonable rate of interest. The 19% APR that i was quoted is what i got and i was well happy and pleased when the loan paid out… Read Full Review

“Don't bother”

Written on: 12/05/2012

I originally applied for a loan of £3000 for which I was accepted straight away. It turns out I had been accepted for a loan finding service, not an actual loan. After giving my home phone, mobile and email to the Wentworth representative I am now bombarded with spam calls, texts and emails, some texts arriving after midnight for payday type loans, all with APR of 2000% or above. DO NOT GIVE THESE PEOPLE YOUR DETAILS … Read Full Review

“£3500 loan with wentworth”

No one could have tried harder than Wentworth to get me the £3500 loan that i needed. I saw them advertising online and filled in the relevant loan application form. It all went faster and better than i expected and i was more than happy with the payout time. The website was very user friendly and the application procedure was very easy to use. Everything was positive i think… Read Full Review

“Wentworth finance loan”

Written on: 01/05/2012

I originally applied for a loan of £5000 which was approved pretty much straight away. They said they would get a company to call me. I did get companies ringing me offering £750 and another offering me £1000 at a ridiculous apr, I tried to call them and eventually got through and said they would put it through again by to no avail so I lost my £45 admin fee. Not happy at all !!!… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/04/2012

If your thinking about taking a Loan out don't go to wentworth. They promise you a loan and then they are ask you to pay £69.00 which is one big scam.... I applied in Jan 12 and is march and heard nothing. Now I am trying to get my money back .....impossible. Even the ladies that you speak to on the phone all advise you to cancel.. So that says it all. Be careful and don't touch, the company loan shark manager need to be locked up !… Read Full Review

I was searching for a loan when via "the credit expert" I was put onto this company.

“Customer service, their strongest side.”

Written on: 16/04/2012 by gogetter400 (1 review written)

Customer service was particularly strong and a special thanks to Petra who was there for me when i needed her. Wentworth managed to secure a £8000 loan for me which i was extremely grateful for and the whole loan procedure didn't take too long either. I'm putting the money towards buying myself a car because the other one is clapped out.All came right in the end. … Read Full Review

Written on: 15/04/2012 by hats100 (1 review written)

Ok, yeah i could have got a lower rate than my bank, considering the state of my credit rating, Wentworth did much better than i expected. And they had plenty of lenders to choose from. I took advantage of the third loan offer that came my way and i opted for payment protection as well. It was a bit of a shame that i had not heard of them earlier… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/04/2012 by popperdrome (1 review written)

The pay out time for my wentworth loan was 10 days which was average as loan companies go, but the interest rate was lower than i expected so i'm giving them 4 stars. This is the second occasion that wentworth has approved and paid out a loan for me and hopefully it won't be the last. I did not fancy ppi so i didn't go for it. … Read Full Review

Hi folks i had just applied online yesterday for this loan from wentworth and one of the representative foned me after i submitted the form and after few minutes they contacted me and said i was approved.

They asked my bank details and even the 3 digit num at the back of my card! So i was probably been mesmerize with… Read Full Review
