I have been using wonga for the past year and never had a problem repaying my loan back but now my partner is loosing his job I can't meet my repayment date and very worried what to do I can't afford for them to take the money out of my account - should I report my card lost and get a new one will this be enough to stop them I bank with Halifax.

 

Do I contact them now or wait until end of month

 

I owe 1325 which I would be paying at end of month - how do I set up a repayment plan I can pay back 100.00 per month

contact them now before they start adding interest.Yes cancel your card say its lost I did .Then I only made payments to them via FPI -FAST PAYMENT OPTION

Send them a income and out come expenditure form .I did mine via NATIONAL DEBT HELPLINE you could even phone the NDH http://www.nationaldebtline.co.uk/england_wales/

who can advise better than me.I got all my info from the other treads on here .

Also put

My offer of repayment is £*** per month. I have sent you all required information

I feel i must remind you of your obligations under OFT guidance on debt collection in regards to this debt Please reply within 24 hours.

 

.If you can get a letter from Halifax showing what payments you have already made to them scan that into your email.This shows that until your change of circumstances you paid regularly.

.

These are the e-mail Address's I used

 

hardshipreferrals@wonga.com

I just called them and told them had lost my card .If your on line banking with Halifax just search your statements and copy paste the payments that you did make .

BUT DO NOT WORRY.If your worried about anything call NATIONAL DEBT HELPLINE .They helped my daughter get out of a major fix that was making her ill.Good Luck

Before you think of contacting them, you MUST secure your money and bank account. PDL's including wonga are well known for automatically taking money the second they get a hint that you might default.


Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

You need to write a letter with specific wording, and take it to your branch before close of business at the latest the day before the payment is due to happen.

 

So if the payment is due on a friday, then the letter must be taken to the bank, photocopied, stamped and signed by thursday close at the latest.

 

If you need help, let us know. Also tell us the name of the bank, as some banks think they are above the law.

Nope. It is no concern of the bank what happens with your money. If you instruct them to stop specific payments and mechanics to a creditor, under UK law they MUST comply, unless the transaction was initiated by a court authority.

 

You also shouldnt just write that you want a payment stopped. There are a few other things to instruct them about to. If you need help, let us know.
