Communication and fees


Fox Synes do not disclose the 12.5% fee in the total debt.
All you know if of a $6-700 administration fee.
Have repeatedly asked for information showing e were provided this and ignored. No information provided, also no one calls back.

They also double dip fees if you have a joint debt, eg $40,000 debt in 2 names they charge 12.5% on the total loan to both parties, so double fees instead of half each on total amount
When asked about this they never get back to you.
Also don’t provide updates or statements, had debt since about August 2019, and nothing unless you call and not much information is provided.

Unsolicited advice instead of information about product


I called to enquire about car finance, and spent 30 mins being lectured to about the inadequacy of other debt agreement administrators and how poor my decision making was. Coulda just told me you couldn’t help!

Good for temporary help BUT bad for your future


I agree with everyone's positive feedback on here in getting the help when we had it tough.... But after my 5yrs Debt Agreement has finished and 1 year after.... I've still got a bad history and credit rating behind me and find it difficult and will find it difficult to apply for anything and everything as I'm now a risk to creditors.

Foxsymes is good TEMPORARILY but bad for YOUR FUTURE.

It's a choice you need to make...struggle now and work for it and you won't have diffulties in the future.

Or a quick fix now... And feel hopeless in the future and your goals.

Glorified refinanciers


Appalling customer service


We used Fox Symes to access a non-conforming home loan (consolidating huge credit card bills).

As soon as we've stuck through the first year and have a nice clean credit record, we will refinance at market interest rates. And although Fox Symes do offer "normal" home loans at a competitive interest rate, we will not be using them.
The good: I am very glad we used them and so avoided selling our home.
The bad: Customer service is appalling - and communication very poor. They also took an additional mortgage payment in error and there was no apology forthcoming.
