Matthys Potgieter Staff asked 4 years ago

I posted on here a couple of months ago about ABSA being bullies and unethical how they gave out information to my ex husband after we were divorced which caused him to stop paying child support which forced me to go under debt review which was 5 years ago. Then ABSA went behind my back and my lawyer auctioned my house.
My lawyers have sent in all the correct paperwork but still they have managed to by-pass the system and on Monday I got evicted.
Is there anything I can do? My lawyer tells me I must not worry as they have not done the correct paperwork but I’m stressed and my kids are too. I have told ABSA now I’m going public with their unethical manner as I feel their customers should know their private information isn’t private at all and anyone that knows someone in the bank can get your information.
I’m sick of living in fear I told my lawyer months ago I want a chance to sell my house as they auctioned it for R700 000 and its actual value is R1.3 mill. What can I do now do? I need to change my lawyers because I have been told the woman that purchased my house is making me pay her lawyer fees too now, and honestly I can’t afford all this now they are causing me to get deeper and deeper in debt. I really need help I can’t live like this anymore I’m at breaking point.

Hi There

I am really saddened by your situation. It is totally unethical what ABSA has done there. I can unfortunately not comment to much about your case as I do not have al the specifics.

From what you have mentioned I can see that there are many legalities that just do not seem to be right.

Your best option would be to change your attorney. Get someone that can really fight for your rights and not just let things happen the easy way and still claim their own pound of flesh.

If you could please send me your detail at [email protected] I will gladly help you find the right attorney for the job.

At this point you have nothing left to lose I should use that frustration and fear that you have to fight ABSA until you succeed.

Kind Regards
