Mintos loan originator Kuki.pl misses the payment of the buyback guarantee?


As promised, I return with the response received from Mintos support. It arrived promptly, the next day, and you can read it below:

Hi Cristian,
thank you for your message.

After checking I found that the loan you are referring to had been closed by the 16.10.2019. 
It is listed in the finished Investments as well. The amount of days the loan is late, however, will keep increasing. As of now it is 63 days late, but that doesen`t change the fact that the loan had been in accordance to the buy-back guarantee on the 16.10.2019.

I hope that cleared it up and you may have a pleasant day
Let us know if you have any other questions.

Now, given the age of the platform, the volume of transfers and the experience with them so far, I will credit them, but there are still some doubts:
– if a loan was paid on 16.10.2019, why did it appear within the platform as late on 17.10.2019 (at night !!!) as it results from the image below, and only on 18.10.2019 as ” Finished prematurely “?
– if indeed the loan was paid on 16.10.2019, it means that there is a problem of the platform with the updating and/or displaying of data, which is worrying considering that we all make investment decisions in accordance with the information displayed.
As a personal opinion, for a while I will stay away from kuki.pl.
If you have questions or can explain these differences, feel free to comment on this post.

End of update

No money

Tonight, when I checked the Mintos platform, I had the unpleasant surprise to see that there are loans on my portfolio at Mintos that are more than 60 days late, given that I only invest in loans with buyback guarantee.I checked on the platform and noticed the following loan:

Kuki.pl buyback default

Kuki.pl buyback default

I am aware that this is only a one day late loan, but after the “experience” with Eurocent and Aforti I am very attentive to everything that happens within the platform.

I sent a message to Mintos about this topic, I will update this post when I get a response from them.

However, until then, I liquidated the entire loan portfolio from kuki.pl on the secondary market. I hope this is not another case like Eurocent.
