I received a text from CRS today asking me to call them asap. I noticed the reference ID on the text contained the name WONGA, so guessed what it was in regards to.


To summurise:


November 20/2009 - Loan of £200 taken


Defaulted 20/2010


Attempted payment plans with Wonga which were completely ignored as interest starting to mount at grotesque amounts.


April 2010 - Paid £120 into the Wonga sort code and account number to bring balance down


From them on offers were made to settle the account which would still give Wonga in the excess of £120 interest on the original amount turned down.


October 2010 - Phonecall with DRS who state the debt is £750 and payment required immediately. Advised my actual amount owing should be £80 and the interest added was dispicible and unwarranted, they just rambled on about signing a contract which stated this was the interest and I will be taken to court if I refuse to pay.


I offered to pay£250 to settle the debt which was turned down flatly.


Any advice on what my next steps should be and if I should contest the court proceeding that they file against me - she mentioend it may take 4 months before they pass to legal team and futher costs will be added.


Not really sure if other people have been around this bush before and can offer any advice.


Should I play the account was in dispute card and state it should be returned to Wonga?

ahh so they are still at it are they??????? This happened to me a while a go and I successfully beat them I paid off the debt (original + interst) back in june and they just continued to add interest and charges onto something I did not owe.. I think that the media again would be vry interested in this I would also mail mr daimlin or john hegarty direct to wonga and see what becomes of this. have they started to send threatening mails o you PM me and le me know so I can send you the e mail addresses.

I was in dialogue with John Hegarty and agreed to pay £200 last month but unfortunetely was unable to pay it when I hoped to. Is it worth speaking to him again to see if he can offer a resolution on the problem?

I'm having similar problems

I have a plan for repayment set up with wonga but then suddenly got the letters from crs. Since then i have been in touch with both parties and keep getting conflicting details.


most recently I spoke to a manager at wonga who set yet another plan in place - but they won't send me confirmation in writing. crs say the account is out of their hands again now but they will not confirm this in writing they will only email me saying the account is 'on hold' awaiting wonga's instruction. crs continue to demand the debt be repaid, with legal action threatened etc. but they will not speak to me nor have they responded to any of my numerous emails on the subject.


neither company is being very helpful and seem to be in cahoots in a game of good cop bad cop. i have no issue repaying the debt but will have to do so on my terms due to money probs. but i refuse to pay two companies for 1 debt.


Any advice on how to progress??

Do not speak to them, email them and you will have a nice little trail to show the judge should it go to court, you will have tried to pay them back - any payday loan that falls into arrears should only be paid back at the rate of the original loan plus one rollover fee - to avoid their additional illegal and dubious charges.


Whilst it is easy to borrow money from these companies it isn't always easy to pay them back other than in the way they want. These loans should come with a WEALTH warning such as


"If you borrow £300 from us and DO NOT PAY us back £375 in one month you can end up owing £1000 and we can make you bankrupt".
