Overcharging excessive fees
Cash Converter always made errors charging me double interest with high establishment fees equivalent to 20% non refundable. When I requested to clarify the actual balance they panicked and they say wait for accountant to call you back which means the junior himself doesn't understand the calculations with so many errors. I do not recommend anyone to borrow from this unscrupulous financial service from Canada who is interest in my opinion is just to plunder local resources.
Cash Converters Burwood NSW - bad business ethics.
Do not honor their online "quotes", and while you wait to have your intelligence insulted you can listen to the staff laugh about their other customers. (ie. fake tan, dyed hair etc.,).
Rude and degrading attitude from staff as well as giving false and misleading information during phone enquiry
Spoke to male staff member over the phone who advised situation described would not be an issue. Went into store and was greeted by a female staff member who's tone of voice was immediately abrupt and rude. It was 15 minutes before closing and I was fumbling through my paperwork trying to hurry when she rudely and abruptly stated "if you can't get yourself sorted you will have to come back tomorrow" She then proceeded to completely ignore all attempts by me to be friendly and make conversation. When opening my bank statement she was rude and spoke over me while trying to discuss the issue and different information I had received over the phone.
Terrible service, scammers
I was trying to sell them my 6 months old bicycle. I was there first time with pictures of my bike, asking for estimate, how much I can expect for it. They told me I need to come with bicycle and show it to them, after that they can give me offer. So I came back next day with the bike and they didn't even look at it and offer me straight away $100 for bike with value over $500. It is absolute joke!
Most cash converters are too lazy to post online items or sell them after paid for.
I have had so many terrible dealings with the Cash Converters online stores lately, I have given them chance after chance after chance, as there are so many stores that it is not fair to the good ones, but most of them seem to behave in a similar way now.
* Stores sell items after they have been paid for, this is actually a breach of contract and illegal, but I have let it go.
* Stores make so much fuss about posting items, even after paying for them, so I have had to ensure that they pack them properly, as this is not taught.
* Stores which ar...
Shame on you cashies
Be warned if you get an emergency payment through Centrelink and it has been repaid.
The next time you go to cash converters and apply for a cash advance they will not approve it they say come back in 90 days or we will contact you after the required time they did this to me at Nambour . I owe them nil and my cash advance from Centrelink was only $50 I have walking disabilities my car is broken down undrivable.I have gone without food this fortnight to have my car fixed shame on you cash converters.
The pricing on 2nd hand tools
Broadmeadow shop needs to desperately get someone who actually knows how to valuate tools correctly .This shop is continually trying to sell tools over priced , which are clearly well used
Apauled with beenleigh cc
Tried to offer me $7.50 for a 5 piece fly fishing rod set with 2 reels in case never been used and when I asked what about rod said doesn't matter cause the reels were cheap tried to find a 5 piece rod online only acouple under $200 made out of crap
Salisbury SA - Taking advantage of your desperation, LOW LOW LOW ballers stay clear.
They offered 1/40th of the value of an item, slight amount of dust but if you look at the crap they sell you wonder why they are so picky, they want to give you the lowest price imaginable. Arrogant, rude staff who are well trained in the art of scamming. Any other cash converters store is at the very least reasonable, hopefully their incompetence is their own undoing, dont say I didnt tell you!
Its unfortunate when corporations task advantage of the needy, by the way my credit rating is 100%! ive always been fair with my asking prices but ...this was an absolute insult. DO NOT buy electronics from this store, I was ignorant enough to buy laptops and phones from their store, most of which the salesperson has no idea of the product issues, if they even work without a charger etc. these electronics last me on average 2-3 months, they are well aware the electronics are close to their death, they overprice them and then tell you you only have 30 days warranty, remember consumer law trumps store warranty, do not get sucked in by this store, stand against greed.

A bleak necessity for those in hardship
Extreme interest charges, extreme lack of respect for people in their times of hardship in order to gain capital (exploitative behavior), but you earn a 3 rather than a 0 because it is a community service all the same, a necessity if you will for those on the lower end of the socio-economic scale, even if tainted with the death-gloves of capitalism that wilt any life it touches. Keep up the crappy work of robbing the poor and giving to the rich, sadly, we need it whilst nothing else exists to safeguard the little guys who go on to take their li...ves or the lives on others or adopt abusive self-defeating behavior that's almost impossible to beat if it weren't for the nature of the reality we've created and inflicted on such individuals. "It's dog eat dog", they say.. thus we all go on to perpetuate that modality in fear someone else will get the better of us which produces the least fertile ground for healthy culture imaginable. If none of this reads true to you then you're indefinitely part of the problem and should be finished like my recent loan. Thanks for all the help you apathetic, [name removed] can go kill himself.

Low ball offers
I contacted the Caloundra store and was just offered $9-$16 for my 9ct Yellow Gold, Natural Emerald and Diamond Ring that had been valued at over $1000. Needless to say I did not sell it to them. I wouldn't bother selling anything to them.
Applied for a $600 loan for unexpected vet bills, (pet insurance didnt cover it all) and was declined stating "more than 97pct of your income is already taken by expenses" Considering I pay out $1100 in bills (everything from food to insurances) and still have around $300 in my account to play with every fortnight I'm sure I could have afforded a $20 per week loan.
But my sister applied who is (and this isn't disparaging to her she has her reasons) in a financial situation with only basic centrelink income, is constantly borrowing cash and defaulting on loans was approved for a $1000 loan, Seriously wake the finance team and you might actually stop LOSING money!

DO NOT GET A LOAN
This company is the absolute worst!!!!! The end up charging your triple for the loan. There’s no easy way to pay it off faster, there’s no way to see how many payments you have made or need to make. There’s no easy app or online account to manage your account. You can’t pay with bpay etc.
The only way to get any info is to call (and they don’t open Eastern Standards Time) the customer service is usually very rude.
Just avoid!!!! If you need a pay day loan then use a different company - I.e wallet wizard or nimble
Not satisfied at all. The 'finance' team are a bunch of dropkick wan*ers and if you have even the slightest mark on your credit rating.. forget it! Must be nice to be perfect in a judgemental job position ;)
Crime converters more like?
Brand new Wethepeople professional freestyle bike! Paid 1100 for it. They offered me 100? Prospect store! Shame! Shame! Shame! Junkies and ice addicts are the only scum that benefit from crime converters.
New Website is junk
New website is about as useless as can be. Three or four levels to click through to find stock. Search page adds only 8 or so items a time. If you look at an item and go back, site returns you to top to start again. Postage cost no longer visible till you're checking out.
The old webshop site wasn't brilliant but at least it was functional. After years of buying online I won't be any longer. The site i's just too difficult to navigate and is about as user friendly as a frozen screen. I wonder how the franchise owners feel about having their online business destroyed?
