Taking advantage of the desperate.
My Son was offered $50 for his expensive laptop computer at the Murray Bridge rip-off store.
He reluctantly accepted that. I inquired soon after as a potential purchaser of it.
I was told that it was $499. They would not negotiate a cheaper price and was told that it was worth more. Their tactics are shameful.
*** DO NOT PURCHASE from Cash Converters Rockdale ***

*** RUDE Customer Service from both STORE MANAGER and STATE MANAGER ***
In general, most staff members are friendly but I have to write this review particular to let public know that I feel disgusting with the service from this store. And urge people DO NOT interact with this store.
Basically, ordered an item online. Refunded by store saying "it was for another customer".
Ring store, got answer from store manager saying we won't do anything and you won't even get an apology for that.
Offered me $800 for a brand new iphone 12 pro max
offered me $800 for a brand new iphone 12 pro max, told me it was a competitive rate and they needed to make money too... LOL ended up selling it to a buy back service for $1300, dont be fooled by these jokers.
its a disgrace
I went on and asked how much money they would give me for a $450 guitar mind you this guitar is close to brand new with a very very minor scratch on it I asked for about $350 for tis guitar and they turned around and said it was worth $80-$120, absolute nonsense this is a guitar in almost perfect condition, they are an absolute rip off, never in 1000000 years will i ever being going here they can get screwed
Personal finance loan
I received $600 through personal finance and ended up paying close to $1200 as the mongrels charged me 8% interest every month of my 12 MTH contract. That's a grand total of 96% interest.. Why are they allowed to break the law and get away with it. The law says they can only charge 48% interest maximum.. I am on a pension and they seriously overcharged me and I wish I could sue them but the government obviously don't take it serious otherwise crime converters would be closed down forever. They charge more interest than banks do and that ...my friends is total crap and should be illegal. Cash converters are the lowest of the low and they enjoy seeing people suffer and have caused countless numbers of people to lose their belongings due to rediculous charges and the government allow them to do it.. like I said totally disgusting and they are shameless. Also give people bigger all for expensive items knowing people will take it because they are desperate and then they go and sell said item for more or less retail price the government need to seriously investigate these criminals
A total rip-off
I wouldn't recommend buying anything from them because they always rip people off and the staff are rude to their customers also the manager is rude and arrogant as well.
My druitt store nsw run by a fat guy who doesn’t know the law on mask excemptions who will be investigated on the right not to give proof
My mum got a $780 loan and now she has to pay back nearly $1700. Literally more than double the original loan amount, absolutely atrocious!!!!!!!!
Atrocious!! Atrocious! I will make certain she never goes there again. And spread the word!! Atrocious!!
I took out a loan I was informed how much I’m gonna pay back. When they drop the contract and showed it to me it was a lot more than what they had previously said. I question them the lady “Chloe” from the Brisbane Store was extremely rude. She informed me that it was Hometime completely rushed me said to me “are you going to do it or not you were wasting my time I need to go home” I didn’t do it as I left she said thanks again for wasting my time. Am I obligated to take a loan? They need to check their staff that’s for sure.
Buyer Beware! Dont dare buy here! Just Don't!!
Bought a HP laptop, wasn't delivered & I had a receipt. They denied receiving money then "refunded me" 2 days later.
dont sell them anything i would them something if was stuffed so they can have the problem its cheaper to buy new
Bought item(s) online but often they can't find or sold to others
Bought item(s) online but often they can't find or sold the item(s) then took almost a week to refund back to the credit card
Stay clear of Cash Converters loans
To pay off a $1000 loan it’ll cost you $1700. Because of coronavirus, late fees ($33 each time) was meant to be cleared but now I’m paying $570+ In fees so the total is $2270+ For an $1000 loan. Called cash converters and they don’t care, if I don’t pay they will make it affect my credit score. NEVER EVER GET A LOAN OUT WITH CASH CONVERTERS. Use zip pay if you need money up to $1500 or go through your bank if you need anymore. Cash converters are rip off’s and should be sued.
Rip offs . Avoid !!
I sold them a brand new laptop that was worth $279 that I bought while my main computer was being fixed. I didn't need it anymore and it was only used once and in excellent condition. It came with a charger and Windows 10. Guess how much I got for it $60! I was desperate for cash so I took the money . Still at least I was quoted slightly more than than I was quoted online -$50.
Do Not USE Cash Converters Parramatta
A friend of mine got a loan from CC Parramatta he is on a Disability Pension and has intellectual problems well they saw he coming from a mile off, gave him an $1800 loan and by the time it’s paid off he will have paid $3400 in payments.
How they are allowed too operate like that and prey on the disadvantaged.
Well I have stepped in and stopped the payments so when they start demanding money, I will go too the ACCC and they can explain there lending practices too them and the Financial Ombudsman. My friend has paid them more than $2400 already but they will not be taking 1 cent more.
All they are is bottom feeders with no scruples, and feed off other people’s misery. Snakes::: Please beware and don’t get bitten.

Very probably. You must be VERY desperate if you use rip-off Cash Converters. You will be paying thousands more in interest. BEWARE. This is from Cash Converters.

Can you go into cash converters and buy your stuff back if you have lost your ticket
dont know go in & try
Present into the store Buys & Loans Department with your drivers licence. They will provide you with a stat dec to be signed at a chemist. You can then return and collect your goods.
If your contract has expired due to non-payment your goods will be for sale in the Retail Department where anyone can purchase them.
