News reaching QUICK LOAN ARENA indicates that Google has just yanked off another two rogue loan apps in Nigeria from its Play Store, PalmCash and GotoCash over serial violation of its policy on customers’ data privacy.
Just over 24 hours ago, the internet giant removed BorrowNow and LendCash loan apps over the same reason: violating customers’ data privacy and sending defamatory and threatening messages to its customers, their families and contact list.
Google started the crackdown on violating loan apps few weeks back following series of investigative reports by QUICK LOAN ARENA blacklisting several digital lending apps in Nigeria for breaching the data privacy of their customers and sending shame and defamatory messages to their families and contact list.
We had published an article early in November, 2021 where we revealed how PalmCash and Gotocash and other rogue loan apps are defaming Nigerian consumers and why Google should blacklist them and take them down from its Play Store.
This ongoing crackdown on these rogue loan apps in Nigeria by Google is a welcome development and we believe it’s the only way to enforcing the rules on the remaining ones and by implication sanitizing the quick loan industry and digital lending platforms in the country.
QUICK LOAN ARENA has been at the forefront of a campaign to get rid of rogue and fradulent loan apps that have been defaming and maligning Nigerian consumers. Many of these apps are woned and managed from China or Hong Kong. Some managed in Nigeria are faceless, without any office or customer service telephone number. Those we have gotten evidence of their infringement and violating the data right of Nigerians we have blacklisted them and advised customers across the nation to boycott their service. A few of them are listed below.
