Woolworths is investigating why Cecilia Molifinyana should pay R7381 for goods fraudulently bought on her account after she had destroyed her credit card.
Molifinyana said she was getting rid of her small debts so that she could get a bigger loan from her bank to extend her house.
"You can't get a loan now without adhering to the strict new Credit Agreements Act, so it's wise to cut out all the debts you do not need to qualify for the loan," she said.
After paying her last instalment of R141 she tore the card into small pieces without even telling Woolworths about it. In February Woolworths sent her a new card without her reporting her card lost or stolen.
"I also shredded that one but and few days later I got a bill claiming I owed R7200 for goods I did not buy," Molifinyana said.
When she went to the Westgate branch a customer care employee, who identified herself as Thembi, told her that her account had been fraudulently used and that they would rectify her account.
Cecilia is, however, still waiting.
