Good news. I actually contacted the ASA about Wonga's website but it wasn't in their remit. I keep asking Wonga they won't publish my testimonial on their website. I guess it was negative and they only publish positive ones that they write themselves.

 

I tried to raise the same issue on their blog but guess what I can't get it to work. Like I maintain elsewhere Wonga's PR machine in full flow.

 

I see the tide turning against them and they will be forced to behave properly and responsibly

 

"Wonga said the mans costume was split to allude to the customer talking to someone who was always available to help and saw things from his perspective."

 

That doesn't sound like the Wonga I know!!!!

Did Wonga hire a Comedian to write their repsonse?

 

Wonga offered cash advances online and therefore customers must have the mental ability to transact online to obtain a loan from them. They believed people who are able to do so were not usually vulnerable.

 

So according to Wonga the ability to use a computer and visit a website can be used to judge if someone is in a financial mess or not?

 

They also only approved consumers who were employed

 

Wrong, they don't verify employment.

 

and meaningful credit histories

 

So plenty of defaults is a meaningful credit history now?

Just found out that Wonga have been sending information to my Credit File. Original loan of £200, in which I have paid two installments totalling £120, has now crept up to £700. To think they are putting false information on my credit file showing balances which are not accurate and swelled by their immoral interest.

 

Does anyone know if I have any rights to request that this is removed or amended - its showing as a 6 months late payment, which is quite derogatory to say the least.

Willo53,

Have you complained to Wonga about it? Did they take money out your account leaving you nothing? I would ask them for a statement and then if they have charged interest after 60 days they are breaking their own code of conduct.

 

I would send one email to customercare@wonga.com They have 48 hours to respond. If they fail to respond or respond by saying telephone us I would issue a complaint to the FOS.

 

Have they send any letters from ligitation specialists?

Hi Eboy,

 

Nopes I haven't received any litigation letters as yet, the nearest one I had to that was from Barker and Lowe, but that was nearly 4 months ago. I had agrred a payment plan with them of £80 a month, but had to break it due to finanancial issues. They have been adding interest every month onto the total, so the 60 days have well and truly expired.

 

In addition, I noticed on my credit file that NetUsa (quick quids sister company) have issued a default on my file. I had a loan of £200 out with them, I havent been able to agree payment plan and they go and hit me with default but I have received no letters to state this. The mark on my credit file says the default is settled.

Did they send a default notice letter or email. If not then they cannot default your credit record. I would make a complaint to the FInancial OMbudsman as Wonga's own conduct of conduct states 60 days interest.
