I'm really struggling with wonga at the moment. I took a £400 loan out with them in November and I did start repaying it early in order to reduce the about owed. However I did default and started repaying my loan in January at the rate of £5 a week. Not a huge amount but better than nothing. However I have just been online and it says I still owe them £589.27. Surely this can't be right? How can I go about getting this reduced because I've worke out they must have had over £200 already from me. I've just emailed them saying I have been repaying a per our agreement and it isn't being reflected and asking for a full breakdown of all charges and all payments reviewed by them on my account.

 

Please help because I'm not paying any more than I have to which I thought was the original loan, one month interest and one default fee? Is that right?

Pay the loan, plus contracted interest and a fair default fee. However, one thing you need to do is tell them you are in financial difficulty and that you need the interest to be stopped. Wonga are normally good at stopping interest accruing, but you need to tell them.

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..

I went through all my old emails last night and on the date I defaulted I only owed them £430.92 from a £500 loan as I had started making payments. I have since made £105 worth of payments but apparently my debt still stands at nearly £600. I am not paying this much. And they are ignoring all my emails. What do I do now and what is a reasonable amount to repay them? I personally think I should only repay the £430 outstanding plus a default fee, minus the £105 I have already paid leaving me about £350ish to repay not £600ish. Would that be reasonable? How do I word an email saying they are taking the mickey?

Thanks,

 

Going to draft them another email now and in it say that I am contesting all the charges and interest and telling them that I will only repay them another £350 which I think is more than reasonable. I am going to increase my repayments as well to £10 a week for now. Now I don't have any nursery fees to find I can afford to increase all my repayments meaning I could be PDL free by Xmas if they'd all play ball and stop adding charges and fees.

I don't know because they won't respond by email. Apparently I need to ring them to resolve this which I won't be doing. Just don't see how owing £430 but now repaid £140 means I still owe £580 to them. I'm paying them another £350 maximum and then if they want any more they can take me to court for it. I can't see a judge agreeing with them, especially as I'm repaying it and haven't missed a payment. Plus it's way more than the loan plus one month interest.
