Costly to do business with them
Okinus is horrible with updating your payment history with the credit bureaus. I've been with them for over a year with excellent payment history and was never late. Okinus mixed up my account number, only reported 2 months of payment history and pretended like the only person who could fix it was always out of the office. Finally got this lady on the phone and it took her 3 more months to find and fix the error. Her fix was to just delete the entire account instead of trying to do the right thing and fix it so the accurate payment history could show up. She deleted the entire account and 2 months later the Okinus account has reappeared on my credit file as a new account/debt with 1 month of good payment history, the wrong balance due and it cost me 22 points and 17 points with 2 credit bureaus. If you're smart, you'll stay away from Okinus and go with a better company who cares about the customer, customer service and doing right by a very costly error that they made!

I wish there was a way to give a business negative stars because Okinus would definitely get NEGATIVE STARS. In the beginning I secured credit with Okinus for $3500 and went to look at furniture. I went to the nearest furniture store that supported Okinus as a third party vendor. From beginning to end this experience was horrible, from customer service to delivery to ultimately finding hidden in the fine print of the contract that you are leasing furniture. I contacted Okinus several times demanding that they return to my home to pick up the furniture and they kept stalling, never showed up or kept calling me to reschedule. The cost of my furniture was $3000 with monthly payments of $460, that was in June is now Feb 2020 and I just was told that I owe $4497 and if I go the length of the loan I owe $5998. Can you say predatory lender? Okinus is a joke, find a more reputable company with no fine print and good customer service. Every time I walk through my house and look at those purchases, I get pissed off and want to give that crap away. I still have not been reimbursed for the damage that the delivery guys did to my hardwood floors and freshly painted walls.

• Jan 23, 2020 I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID [redacted] , and have determined that this proposed action would not resolve my complaint For your reference, details of the offer I reviewed appear below.[Provide details of why you are not satisfied with this resolution.] Regards, [redacted] As of now I have made it clear to them that they are not including all payments made by me in the total balance on the account as of the purchase to the last date of the daysThe starting balance after the days should be a different amount even if it included taxes and all there fees if I have not made payment is due to the lack of professionalism on their part when I tried to communicate my concern, they continue to avoid the issue in fixing the correct balance and adding the amount paid to be balance before the days , so as they cannot and wont correct this they can cancel in all my account I will never do business with them and they can send me to collections if they want I will take care of it then I cannot continue to have them report I am late in payments when that is not true as my credit report shoes I have paid them before on time in the previous account and I always pay all my credit card on time If I have to contact that credit bearer I will do so as well I rather have a collection on my account then late payments every month from them, I refuse to pay them any more money as they will just end up saying it’s all fees and taxes and I will never be done paying them off they are a fraud and I will not settle with them with steading balance and all there fees!! Thank you I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID [redacted] , and have determined that this proposed action would not resolve my complaint For your reference, details of the offer I reviewed appear below.[Provide details of why you are not dissatisfied with this resolution.] Regards, [redacted] ***

There was an error on Mr [redacted] ***'s account that resulted in two payments being drafted from his accountOkinus does want to correct the situation but there are policies in place that Okinus has to follow before a refund can be issuedOkinus has a strict policy that states we have to verify that the payment cleared the customer's checking account before we can issue a refund to prevent a customer from being credited back a payment then it return back to OkinusThis is done most of the time by requesting a bank statement from a customer that can verify the payment cleared their bank and will not return back to OkinusIf a customer wishes to not send over a bank statement there are two options Okinus can then offer a customerOkinus can either do way with the customer's bank to verify that the payment cleared and will not return back to our office or the customer can wait business days which is the standard time it can take for a payment to return back to the office if a bank is rejecting itOkinus will return the extra payment back to Mr [redacted] as soon as it is verified that the payment will not return back to the office I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID [redacted] , and have determined that this proposed action would not resolve my complaint For your reference, details of the offer I reviewed appear belowThe business claims they record phone calls, therefore, they should be able to pull up the contact logs where I requested the furniture to be picked upI NEVER requested a third account to be opened! I have been trying to get rid of this furniture since I could no longer make the paymentsI am not settling for $because they should have picked up the furniture the moment I was late, since this is a LEASE agreement I tried to return the furniture Please pull up your call logs and you will see that I am telling the truth This account shows "open" on my credit report but it is indeed closed since I have not made a payment in SEVERAL years! My next step is to report this company to the Consumer Credit Protection Bureau for violation of the Fair Credit Reporting Act since this account is supposed to reflect closed since it has not been active for a long time Regards, [redacted] ***
