Since I’ve been writing about mobile loan apps, recently, I’ve been seeing lots of loan apps adverts almost everywhere on the internet which is comprehensible.
One thing I wasn’t aware of was the fact that people were given instant loans on WhatsApp until the day I saw about three different instant loan ads on Facebook. I visited the comments section and I was blown away by the comments people were making. Almost everyone was calling them scammers. The biggest question on my mind then was “HOW“?.
I engaged one of the commentators (A lady) in a convo under the comment she made, asking her how she got scammed. However, this lady was skeptical, thinking I was one of them. She later told me they asked her to send some money (65cedis) to get registered before they can lend her the money, upon paying, she lost her money and didn’t get any loan.
The advertisers of that Ad blocked me, I couldn’t even see the ladies reply anymore.
As I was surfing Facebook after they’ve blocked me, I saw another instant loan ad, this time around, I decided to test the depth of the water with my one leg so I can live to share my experience with my readers.
So, I took their number and chat them on WhatsApp. On their about us of the WhatsApp account is this bold statement “24/7 Online platform of quick/instant loan loans & savings Ghana..Get A Loan with A Low Interest Rate, Apply Today, Get Your Loan In 3hrs”
Well, some of the instant loan apps I know approve and disburse your loan in less than 2mins (i.e Fido Loan, Ghanalending among others) not in 3hrs and none ask you to make a deposit to be given a loan.
Once I contacted and asked them how THEIR LOAN works, I was sent a lengthy TERMS AND CONDITIONS with everything I deserve to know, Probably.
One major requirement is a SHARES or processing fee of at least 65cedis, right after that is this pleading statement, trying to convince you they won’t run away with your 65cedis.
“PLEASE We’re Not Here To Take Anyone’s Money…Get Registered, Receive Your Loan & Your New Quick/Instant Savings Account Details In Less Than 3 Hours Of Registration!”
