How FNB Is Ripping-Off Black Clients – A bond of R61,000 Taken Out 21Yrs Ago & Client Still Owes R79000

Jacques Celliers – FNB CEO

THERE’S no other way of describing the corruption, moral and otherwise, of what has happened to people like Magdalena Pietersen who has paid First National Bank (FNB) way more than she owed. She took out a home loan for R61,000 in July 1995, and her account went into credit in February 2013, but she still owes the bank R79,278.77.

The latest calculation on her bond by Emerald Van Zyl shows she has been overcharged by R209,772.68 on interest rate charges because she’s black and poor. Van Zyl is the financial consultant who now represents Pietersen and two others in a class action lawsuit against FNB which  will be held in the Western Cape Equality Court in November. Even then she had to beg the bank for the bank statements from 2014 when Van Zyl last evaluated her account. And the bank refused. She then had to look for all the statements since then.

So in effect the bank owes her money but she remains in debt. If Pietersen had come from a privileged background and her Pietersen was of pure white breed, she would have been charged less. She would have been saved hundreds of thousands in interest rates. She would have been saved the numerous harassments and threats from the bank to repossess her house.

By 30 June 2003, Pietersen was paying 4% higher than white bond holders due to the discriminatory practices of the bank. By 31 January 2014, her debt was R96 173,02 instead of being in credit for R14 176,05 according to a calculation by Van Zyl. “The difference of R108 349.07 represents the total damages suffered by the Complainant as a result of the unfair discrimination,” her declaration in the Equality Court says.

Despite having effectively paid-off her house and the bank owing her money, FNB had no mercy when Pietersen fell into arrears. In an interview with UnCensored she said she had prayed often, asking God to assist her. She lived with her son and two brothers; one of them had cancer and the other was on a wheelchair. They have since died.

The law stipulates that you cannot increase the interest rate when in arrears and her case is due to plain discrimination. She couldn’t afford the inflated instalments. http://uncensoredopinion.co.za/blacks-ripped-off-fnb-will-finally-get-say-court/

    These banks are plainly arrogant and manipulative. They have no regard to the constitutional rights of the poor and blatantly abuse the privilige and power given to them by laws that dated from apartheid era with not much amendments. No wonder that fight so viciously against radical economical transformation. Sooner or later the poor will stand up against these kind of abuse and that will be bad.

  5. I too believe i am being ripped off by ABSA I took out a bond in 1999 for R79 000 and still owe them some R35 ooo still some 18 years later. If i pay the same amount for another 2 years i will never redeem the bond in 20 years.

    BANKS ARE THE BIGGEST RIPS OFF. THE GOVERNMENT NEEDS TO CREATE A PEOPLES BANK.BY THE PEOPLE FOR THE PEOPLE

    • Dear Victor, I completed an interes investigation for a woman in Pretoria last month on her FNB and ABSA mortgage loans. The overcharges were respectively R 250 000 and R 316 000.

      • Hi Emerald, how do I get in touch with you. My parents are in a similar situation at fnb, previously saambou.

      • Jeff Koorbanally | October 4, 2017 at 9:13 am | Reply

        My advise to all bond holders it to keep strict track on your bond accounts, as its your biggest investment!

        Banks do make these wrong interest adjustment calculations,whether delibarate or by error.

        It is your right to question & get answers from the bank.

        what seems suspicious on your account, must be raised immediately.

        The mentioned variance revealed by the audit on FNB & ABSA is claimable by the client, she can request it to be paid towards capital reduction, that way it will further reduce her monthly interest charges.

  6. WT#@!$#@… I’m in shock.

    Home loans are a total rip off in this country.

    This is how it works, the first approx 10 years of your repayment is interest only!

    Your Capital debt
    remains unchanged.

    The fluctuation of the interest is determines by the Sarb repo rate.

    Therefore if we are to blame someone it will be the SARB.

    The assertion made of a bank charging certain clients a different rate is bizzare!

    However there may be certain technicalities, as the home loans of FNB is subdivided into two categories..

    That’s where the problem of Mrs Magdalena Pietersen would have derived from

    • I have also a bond with fnb for 11 years and has not drppped . I even paid 80000 into it and still didn’t . This is a total rip off

  8. Nomsa mabotja | October 3, 2017 at 9:15 am | Reply

    I think we are all in a similar situation, I’ve been paying and there is no difference. Instead of a decrease the amount is just stagnant

  9. Discrimination with interest rates on black clients of low cost housing like Magdelana Pietersen was planned for the following financial year as can be seen in paragraph 4.1 of my Expert Report submitted to the Equality Court

    “I refer to Discovery Documentation 331 to 387
    which is the “SAAMBOU STRATEGY PLAN FOR 1998/99”
    (Translated from original Afrikaans) (See Annexure G)
    Discovery document 351 (See Annexure H) under the
    heading “GROWTH INTEREST – INCOME 1998/99”
    (Translated from original Afrikaans) set
    out the strategy for that year as follows:
    High Cost Housing mortgage loans will be increased by
    Prime -.75% and Low Cost Housing by Prime +1.25%
    which can be noted in the following schedule.

    GROWTH IN INTEREST – INCOME 1998/99

    ASSETS:

    # HIGH COST HOUSING 1.2.98- 31.1.99

    • VOLUME R 2 860 miljoen p.j.

    • INTEREST RATE Prime -.75%

    # LOW COST HOUSING 1.2.98- 31.1.99

    • VOLUME R 30 miljoen p.j.

    • INTEREST RATE Prime +1.25%

    (The Schedule was translated from original Afrikaans)

    FNB achieved this goal by not reducing the interest rate of low cost housing with 1% on 1 February 1999 and .25% on 1 February 2000. High Cost Housing received a 1% decrease on both these dates.

    Your article is either badly written, or isnt too well researched. It claims the client was charged an interest rste 4% higher than if shed veen white. Presumably you’ve got records of white people with the as e risk profile being charged much less for the same loan? If so why didn’t you mention it? Or are you just race baiting?

      Fortunately, Walter, Emerald Van Zyl, the consultant who’s been working on the case is on the discussion. Simple research on this blog would give you much of the information you’re looking for. We’ve covered this story at length. This case is all about discrimination based on race and class. Live with it.

      Kindest regards

  11. I’m also a victim of this FNB Practice and need help.

  12. Nomusa Mokgadi Maeko | October 3, 2017 at 5:20 pm | Reply

    I do believe that most black people suffer the same fate at hands of these unscrupulous banking monopolies.

    Keep up the good work @pinkykgoabane.

  13. This is really shocking. I’ve been paying an overdraft of R15000 since 2014 an amount of R500 yet the bank charges on the overdraft remain R273 apart from the account fees I pay monthly on a cheque account with FNB. When I called in last year to find out why the interest rates have not reduced since the capital debt is reducing- I was told that the system calculates it. And I’ve always had a feeling that the bank is cheating me. Yet the amount outstanding is even more than R4000. What has been happening all this while? Counting from 2014 Jan?

  14. I would also like to know where the facts are coming from. In this article the writer is clearly convinced it is because of race.

    I cannot, being a wesbank client, deny interest charges are ridiculous.

    My question, however, is why it is always a racial discrimination case when the victim has a black skin?

    White, brown and black will probably all agree that this is a common problem in our society.

    Why dont we stop making everything black and white, and start fighting back together?

    Just my 2c worth.

    Goodluck Magdalena, i hope you find the resolution you seek.

  15. I feel for these people especially those who aren’t able to take the argument further. I just settled my grandfathers bond with FNB and the hassle that arose through the process was unimaginable. He too was in a similar position to the women taking them to court.. he made a payment of 50% of the remaining bond amount in May 2017 (R5000) and in October this year to find out his amount had grown by a further R2000 interest on the R5000 that was still outstanding.. a whopping 40% interest charged on th the remaining capital value in 5months.. their slogan “how can we help you?” Was nowhere to be found in the bank with him being sent from pillar to post to make the payment to settle the bond.. at the end of it I had the help from Standard bank to settle an FNB home loan.

  16. This is noy tbe first time that Pinky Khoabane has posted racist articles. Its unfortunate that blood sells. I hope you pray for and get forgiveness on day for fueling racial hatred.

    My initial home loan bond was R180000. I took the loan since from 2007 but I’m still owing FNB R309 000 by this month October 2017. I even paid R55 000 arrears but still the balance is took high.

  18. Woolworths ask you to open an account meanwhile is organising a loan with ABSA for you ,you end up paying without any decrease to your account ABSA is ripping us up through Woolworths

    My Father passed away in 2009. He also had a bond that was transferred from Saamboubank to FNB. I think he was also amongst those who were financially discriminated based on his race.

    I am also a victim and it’s very depressing to see the statement. I wonder when I’m going to be debts free thanks to FNB Homeloan. Started paying in 2009 but still it’s like I have paid nothing really we need help here.

  21. I am a victim of FNB too. They are killing me with uneccessary bank charges, and I was also wondering if they are doibg this to only blacks

  22. I think this is deliberately done with government approval I have been paying standard bank home loan for the past ten years my bond still reflects 97% owed even though I’ve already repaid the loan twice over. Its a rip off to keep people forever indebted and making copious amounts of money for the banks whilst we remain poor just to have a roof over our heads. We need Radical Economic Transformation now.

  23. Happy Ntobela | October 4, 2017 at 7:52 am | Reply

    That’s why I have agreed to myself that I will not take a home loan. It does not make logical sense to pay a car of R400 000 in 5 to 6 years and pay a house of R400 000 in 20 years. Just because the car is worth almost nothing after 20 years and the house will still be there. This is a rip-off system that we need to fight.

    • A person who earns say R10k net wouldn’t afford to pay a house for R400k in 5 to 6 years, the longer period allows people who earn less to buy houses they wouldn’t otherwise afford if the period was shorter. So if the period was 5 to 6 years, a person who earns R10k net would probably afford a house for R150k, what kind of a house would that be?

  24. I am also such a similar situation not sure where to go for assistance in this matter bound was taken out in 1996

  25. Capitec is the way to go

  26. this is scary, how are we going to get out of this banks Sodom situation?

  27. Am Also a victim of Fnb on share saver account when u join they send u a tax free certificate but when u selling ur share they tax u

    I am also a victim of Interest Charges on top of another interest. I want to consult Mrs Emerald Van Zyl, I am an FNB Bond Client and want to launch a complain. This is unfair. Please help me or you can contact me on 076 799 2572.

  29. All banks
    All banks are the same …I took out a bond in early eighties and in 2016 I owe the bank more than the initial debt…R442,000 which I had to settle…they are bleeding our citizens dry and there seems to be no reprieve on the financial front. I feel cheated…

  30. We’ve just taken a housing loan amounting to 473,972.88. Our monthly installment is going to be

    ,876.98 over 20 years,
    amounting to a total of 1,388,875.20. Is this fair? I’m in Lesotho.

  31. Banks are nothing but mere crooks nd bullies. And Re given this arrogence Nd monopoly by the govenment. Look at wat happened to MMM.. A community who came together to try nd change the financial burden of black people who are tired of the bank system… And wahat happened… The big bullies wouldnt hv it so they bribed media to sprEad bad publicity abt the social stokvel. People need to wake up to this obsurd monopoly financi giant called banks.

  32. This is the big housing/ mortgage scam that happens all across the world to poor unsuspecting individuals or families, it is a means to keep humans as perpetual debt slaves. the houses that are sold are first off already overpriced and then with the compounded interest you will pay forever and forever. after you take out the mortgage then you still have to pay property tax which is another scam on its own IN MY OPINION. the only people that are safe from this scam are the banksters and their elite friends that can buy property cash and not overpriced.

    Those that feel this is a racial issue are missing the point!

    This article is about Saambou home loan book (on low cost housing) taken over by FNB, whereby these client were charged higher interest than counterpart (high cost housing bond holders which are majority white).

    Reality is: there are no whites that fall into this Category of low cost housing.

    Therefore the assertion made that black people are being ripped off is factually correct, it has nothing to do with inciting racial division or hatred. .

    What’s even more sad is that low cost housing is subsidized by govt, that means not only the poor black people were ripped off, but Govt is also being ripped off.

    Therefore Govt should intervene or come up with an alternative low cost housing finance that does not include these WMC controlled banks.

    Banks in this country benefited from the corrupt system that prejudiced black leaving them landless & homeless.

    With all the powers the banks have of controlling the money, there will be out of business without black people, its time to revisit their policies and laws to correct the imbalances.

    We have the numbers!
    That’s the only Power we as black people have.

    “Buying Power”

    Maybe the time has come to use it to our advantage!

  34. “Pure white breed?” What kind of unashamedly self-pitying race baiting is that? You should be ashamed of yourself. You’d swear the bank had a special filing cabinet where they could easily determine what race someone by the name of “Pietersen” was. Oh, wait, the author of this article is black, and therefore there is no other way to see the world but through the eyes of race. Booboobeeboo we black people are just pure victims just cos of our colour, no matter what. Even when it makes no sense whatsoever, we’ll find a race reason to feel sorry for ourselves. The bank sucks equally, equal-opportunity. Your precious race has nothing to do with it, so get over yourself.

      Hey Brian

      In the south african context, yes black people have to see the world through the eyes of race. .

      black people are victims of the colonial & apartheid systems of oppression, discrimination, imbalances inequalities & prejudice, which was based on race!.

      Non of the above has changed! Lots of whites in this country refuse to acknowledge this including yourself.

      Yes banks have a filing cabinet (as you put it) to determine what nationality/ethnic group Pietersen is!

      The banks deliberate retained the column of race
      Identification in all their application document, for the same purpose.

      Due to these imbalances/inequalities banks in this country still hold every black person enslaved in one way or other (home loans/credit cards/personal loans) and “they are white owned!

      Therefore your argument is disrespectful & out of context of the facts of our history.

      The assertion made that black people find reason to be victims for the purpose of self pity is further an insult. We don’t feel sorry for ourselves but speak out & assist each other, by sharing information in these platforms like uncensored

      So yes race has got everything to do with it, so you get over yourself!

      • Jeff Koorbanally | October 5, 2017 at 11:10 pm | Reply

        Let me further define it for you Brian as you seem to be ignorant of facts!

        These White Own Banks go further that keeping a filing cabinet of your race!

        They further down grade your area of residence due to the same low cost housing!.

        As if that’s not enough they further rate your area as high risk.

        In doing so they ensure that there is no equity growth in those properties on the whole area, hence if you sell you sell at a loss.

        That’s call economic terrorism!
        Intended for black people to keep them enslaved for the rest of their lives!

    I used to have two bonds with standard from 1997 to 2011 and I also feel they have been ripping me off,however I have since been divorced and had to sell both properties at a loss. The only people that gained was the bank.

  37. Hi, I would like SAHL to also be investigated. I am a victim of an interest only bond that only warrants payment of interest without capital being reduced. { Completed through research and findings, that warrants a case however I am not sure how to proceed. SAHL already admitted to me that they did not complete needs analysis, no recordings of conversation can be located or is not documented}

  38. I was also extremely over charged by FNB on my home loan. Can I also blame discrimination or is that only valid if I was black? Because if not can someone please inform FNB to pay me my white privilege money that they took from me. And it should be a lot easier than a court case as I’m white. So I’m sure a simple email would suffice.

    Sorry but this article is pure race baiting and the author should be ashamed of herself. Keep your articles based on facts and not ignorant blanket racist statements. The banks should definitely be investigated as it is ridiculous how they rip everyone off. Yes. EVERYONE including white people. I hope this lady get’s her money back but also that all banks will be held accountable for everyone.

  39. I’m a pensioner who had a bond with FNB which I paid in July 2014. I’ve been struggling to get my Tittle deed to date. FNB gave me the contact nos of Their lawyers, the Van Rensburg in PRETORIA. I Contacted them many times until I was given a postal Tracking no. The post Office told me their system showed it to be somewhere in Cape Town. They acknowledge they have an office in CT & I was told they’d get it back & call me to come & collect it. That never happened. It’s been 3months month now that I’ve been told it’s lost. It’s been a month that i was threatend to sign some documents to accept a “Certified Copy” of it. I refused to sign. How do i get a certified copy without the original document. What if it surfaces later & somebody claims my house as theirs? Can someone advice me on this? I am really desperate.

      You get a legal duplicate of a title deed issued by the Deeds office if original was lost.

      If its the above that you refering as certified copy, then accept if as good standing document. Nobody can sell your house withoit your signature place on the sale of the propery in the present of an attorney.

  40. VIVA ZUMA, VIVA ANC………this is how I want to shout out loud when I learn about corporate/ business/ white criminal activity…and they get away everytime. Professing to be the guardians of the economy. No wonder why the ANC government have such stringent regulations with regard to business/ entrepreneurs. They know about the potential of white businesses to be corrupt to the bone, stealing money from poor and helpless people. Thnx for those white individuals who make it their business to help the destitute and poor citizens. God bless them.

    “All bond Holders”

    Advise to all bond holders who suspect wrong interest calculations on their bond accounts.

    You have the right to access to information as enshrined by the constitution.

    Therefore based on suspicion you can request/ demand a full printout of daily calculations of interest debited to your account.

    You then reconcile it to your monthly statements, that should give you all the answers whether you are being ripped off or not.

    If the consultant give you an attitude escalate the matter to supervisor- manager- home loans director.

    This info is available to all, lawyers demand it all the time when dealing with foreclosure litigation.

    As a qualified independent Financial consultant i act on behalf of my clients on a regular basis with the bank manager. The client gives me power of attorney for the homeloan only and then i act on their behalf. The banks does mot like it, but it works.

      Yes it works!

      I did it for years & was also able to put the high court to a standstill, till advocates saw me as a threat,and argued to the judge that I could not represent people as I was not a lawyer! I never pretended to be lawyer, but a financial expert.

    There are many ways to pay your bind off in lesser time. As an independent financial consultant i teach my clients how to do it. Stop the race issue and let us work together. Many clients are stubborn and think they can do it on their own. Find yourself a good independent financial advisor. Not the one that work for a green and blue company. They not allowed to fight with banks as they are all in bed with the banks. An independent consultant cannot lose his job so will engage with the banks all the time even threaten banks that my client will switch. Also fight for interest rates the same as upper level clients. Never skip your bond as then you create a weapon for them. Lets work together and pay our bondage to 7 years. It is possible.

  45. These bank home scheme is broader than we see. It involves bank employees, apartheid regime, auctioneers and politicians at large. Follow the Ground up group led by an activist King Sibiya, which has taken a massive billion lawsuit against big four banks, for reckless lending and irregular practices.

    You gave a contract with the bank for eg. 60 payments if you do not pay it within the 60 payments then only can they charge you. You promissed to pay the whole amount in 60 payments so if the 60 payments has not expired how can the charge you. After 60 payments then you will have a problem when you in arrears. Check you contract.

  48. I would like to firstly thank all of you for sharing and enlightening me. I am in a similar situation with FNB registered bond was R410 400 and then 10 years later my balance is R330547.29 . please advice

  49. That’s bad I am experiencing the same thing too. They say in two years I will done with payment and still after that I still owes them, but I have already paid up the loan with its interest include. What’s going with FNB Namibia and South Africa? Please launch your investigation across borders also.

  50. Nobody owes the bank anything. Just ask them why the deposit of your security (contract) is not reflected on your statement? Learn more about how banks create money and discover who is the real creditor. We must refrain from paying banks as they run a scam.

    As a financial expert, I re emphasize my advise to all.

    Use your right of access to information, demand a printout of interest calculation done on your account for the period you suspect miscalculations.

    The bank cannot refuse you this info!

    They cannot even claim cost of giving you this info as they can electronic ly send it to you via email.

    Get a financial advisor, bookkeeper, or accountant to reconcile the analysis.

    I can without a doubt conclude that all of you have been overcharged!

          I here you. Maybe someone will tell us if you are talking nonsense. I’m at the moment working on a campaign which should look at means of rescuing ourselves from the evil banks. Your inputs hopefully are not nonsense and you can put meat on them at a later stage.

  55. Hi,Fnb repossessed my house cause I lost my job n it was auctioned, they never told me how much it sold for n how much was the shortfall,now after 10 years they are threatening to attach my assets to retrieve the shortfall which they still havent told me its amount.I got a credit report from Experian n its way above the original debt.Now,if i lost my house n its contents,what are they going to attach?

    • Pinky Khoabane | October 10, 2017 at 12:02 pm | Reply

      Yes, this has happened to all of us. They repossess the house, sell it and later come back to ask for more. Let’s put our heads together on these issues and come up with a solution. I will make a proposal by end of the week.

  56. Solution is the creation of a bank by people for the people.
