Hi all,

So I received my offer from Wonga, £41 from a claim of £950ish
Personally I'm just glad to be getting something back, but one thing that has irked me is; I put in a claim for irresponsible lending -and lost- a couple of years ago, and now they're saying that I'm eligible. So did they just blatantly lie to me, or is there some new criteria? Im guessing there's no way to fight the payout?

Thanks in advance!

    Afraid not, looks like the administrators are sharing out what is left in the pot (i.e. not very much)

    The reality is that the administrators are not reviewing your claim and are certainly not making a decision as to right or wrong... this would require trained staff to sit and review, this comes at a cost and would lead to even less redress payouts lol what you have been offered is all there is I’m afraid
  • That's what I thought. It's not even so much the money, but the principle. I'm pretty well sorted now, but that 950 would have been very helpful a couple of years ago clearing debt and in preparation for my second kid!
    Oh well, guess £41 will buy us a celebratory takeaway ��

    Now that’s sounds like a solid investment!

    Did make me chuckle. Wonder why they relied on payday loans and then happily blow that £41 on a takeaway.

    Looks like nothing has been learned from all this
