Rapid Naira Latest Fraudulent And Unethical Practice of Forcing Unsolicited Loans On Customers With Outrageous Interest

Their latest method of scam however is perpetrated against their subsisting customers who already have their app downloaded on their phones and have once borrowed money from the fraudulent online lending platform. Their scheme is to transfer a given amount to you unsoliicted, and then double it on the dashboard with loan shark interest, and ask you to repay bacl principal and interest in 7 days time.

Rapid Naira is one of the greatest scammers and fraudsters of a loan app, and one of the earliest to be banned in Nigeria after we did a damning report on them.

How Rapid Naira Forced “Loan” Of N16,425 To A Lagos Customer To Pay N23,443 In 7 Days

Their latest victim is Simisola Olayiwola (not real names), a female student who lives in Lagos. Simisola told QUICK LOAN ARENA that she has once downloaded Rapid Naira app and borrowed money from the platform apparently before it was banned and kicked out of Google Play Store. Simi told us she had also paid in ful the loan she borrowed. With just this transaction Rapid Naira like all other loan apps in Nigeria has already downloaded safely all her contact details, her phone details, her BVN, NIN, bank account details, photos, etc.  Unfortunately she did not uninstall the app from her phone.

Armed with this tools, Rapid Naira transferred money to her account this morning without she asking for a loan from the app. The loan shark then calculated an astronomical interest rate and added it to the amount trasnferred and displayed it as her repayment amount in 7 days, almost doubled.  This is the height that a loan app can get to in Nigeria. This is the height of scam, fraud and dubiousity. Simi is just one out of several Nigerians Rapid Naira is duping silently while the government and regulatory authorities are silent!

Read her testimony below:

So I just finished my workout this morning and I was on my phone, an alert of N16,425 came in and I was even happy because I thought someone sent me money. However on closer observation, only for me to check it and I saw that it was a transfer from Rapid Naira. Now, I didn’t ask for this loan and I went to check on the app and I saw that I’ll be paying back N23,433!! Without as much any request from me.

Please I didn’t order for the loan in any way, they just sent the money to me. Though Rapid Naira have my details because I once borrowed money from them some times ago, but then I’ve repaid all my debts with them! I have tried every effort at reaching out to them to no avail. I have been looking out for their customer care number but I couldn’t find any. Please QUICK LOAN ARENA, help us escalate this because I want to return their money to them, plus I don’t need, I never demanded for it. This is just the height of fraud and scam.

  1. Thanks. What do we do. I have just applied for a loan on this app but yet to confirm it. I had sent a Whatsapp message but it’s not delivered, tried to call the customer line but perpetually switched off. How can I get off this impending hook?

    1. Uninstall their app immediately, and if you can,let them know you are no longer interested. You are about to go into transaction with a loan shark, you can win!

  2. My wife in this scenario too. She just received a message from them this morning that they have disbursed into her acct. She borrowed money from them few weeks ago and she had repaid fully. Ever since then, they have been sending messages to her to apply for another loan and I told her to disregard the message. Our surprise is the message she received from them this morning and the bank alert. I had to chat with one of their agents that chatted with me when she wanted to repay the last loan. He said we can transfer back the money to them through their app. Is this advice valid or What do you think we can do concerning this?

    1. Yes you can transfer it back to them through their app. Better still send a message to them through their email found on their app and explain to them, They will give you an acct details to refund the money.

        1. Good afternoon Sir, please I’ve just been a victim too. After paying off my loan with them I decided to opted out of the app but there was no ‘signout’ to click on, so I uninstalled the app on 23/08/22.
