Information about Moneycat Lending Company

Requested from SEC by E. Montalla at 05:13 PM on Aug 19, 2022.
Purpose: Stop Moneycat lending operation for ridiculous high
Date of Coverage: 07/24/2022 - 08/14/2022
Tracking no: #SEC-328879699172

Montalla 05:13 PM, Aug 19, 2022

Dear Maam/ Sir

I am writing to bringMoneycat loan company to your attention for charging ridiculous high rate.  I borrowed 8000 pesos  and they charged me 11530 pesos for a period of 21 days ( July 24 - August 14) Unfortunately , I lost my job just now and asked if they could extend it and let me pay as soon as I have the fundings. They didnot care about my situation. To my surprise, after just 5 days  the accumulated amount to pay is now already 14, 054 .  In my understanding this lending company is scamming me and taking advantages of the situation. This is by nature a harrassment..
