QUICK LOAN ARENA spoke to a customer who collected N2.5m from Specta and he has this to say, “I took Sterling Bank’ SPECTA loan of N2.5m. Within 5 minutes it was granted in April 2019. When the money landed they had removed about N120,000.00 as charges and processing fees. I started paying N98,990 every month. It was for a 3-year tenure at 23% interest rate . After fully paying the principal sum as at May 2021, I continued paying up to July.”
He continued, “In August I decided to liquidate the loan, thinking the sum balance should come down on interest having cut down the tenure to 2 years from 3, I was shocked when I still had to pay N860,000.00 . They calculated the whole thing forward up to 2023 when the tenure will end; instead of backward. So I have paid over N1 million on interest within 2 years. I will forever regret it.”
