      what percentage does that relate to in regard to the email they sent saying how much they would refund, ie they said its 5500 but you would get considerably less, so how does your percentage work out? have you recevied in your bank already?
      thanks

        I’m not convinced the anon comment is legit as 3000 seems very high. Wonga states the percentage will be low so it would have to be really big claim in the first place to have amassed 3000. Hopefully small examples of letters from Wonga and percentages paid will appear soon.

          Yes my accepted claim value was £2000 so no idea when and what I’ll end up with – I suppose it’s what you class as “considerably” less – I’d consider £500 considerably less however I don’t think I’ll get that!

            I have received an email today at 6pm. I’m happy to forward it to the blog owner for proof but I’m sure everyone else will be receiving one shortly, too. I’ll paste the relevant sections below, but the long and short of it is we’re getting 4.3% of what we’re owed and it will take up to 4 weeks to happen.

            “The Joint Administrators are now in a position to declare a first and final dividend of 4.3p in the £.

            You will receive a payment of £28.75. Your payment represents 4.3p in the £ on your agreed claim value of £666.89.

            As a result of the volume of dividend payments due to customers/creditors, you will receive your payment within four weeks of this email. Please note that if you have recently provided your bank detail updates to the Customer Care team, your payment may take longer to receive while your updates are processed.”

        Can anyone advise, back in October i got an email asking me to update my bank details using the link, I did this and recieved a confirmation that they had been updated. Last week I recieved the exact same email asking for bank details. After a week of being on hold unsuccessfully to speak to someone and 5 unanswered emails, do I upload them all again or stick with the oct email stating they have them?

          Unsure, I’d suggest they’ll likely contact you if unsuccessful in payment. It does say on their site that if you’ve sent your details previously there’s no need to do it again.

          Hi Jo,
          I received the same email last October,and went onto my wonga account and updated my new bank details.
          I received an email then earlier this month still showing my old bank details.
          I’ve sent over a dozen emails explaining this,and nothing,
          I’ve asked for the link,and nothing.
          I’ve asked for someone to call me,and nothing.
          I’ve made endless phone calls,and left on loudspeaker for long periods of time,and nothing.
          My claim was£3800, and I don’t think I’ll get anything,because there’s nobody there,it’s all computerised.

    I’d be very surprised if Anon actually got £3000 from Wonga – or he/she had racked up an incredible amount during their time with them.

    My claim value is just shy of £4000, even if it was a relatively standard 10p to the pound repayment I’d consider ot a big win if I got anything more than about £300.

    5p to the pound is more realistic so I’m expecting just short of £200 from them. Any more and it’s a definite bonus to me.

    As an aside has anyone else found the account detail update method an absolute pain to deal with? Wonga seem to have old, defunct account details stored and I’ve sent them three emails asking for the link to update it. They finally sent the link through today but it’s a document upload site that doesn’t seem to confirm if the required documents are uploaded or not. Only thing I can do now is sit tight and wait to see if the refund’s paid to my account, or if it gets lost in the ether..

    My claim is £1050 , but I was only using it 2 or 3 days so didn’t pay much interest, any money they give will be a bonus but you would have thought by now they would have at least released the percentage of the claim they are going to pay .

    This below is part of 3 emails I have received from Wonga. Ive had my breakdown of payment on a separate email.

    Third party reference:

    The Joint Administrators have assessed your claim and can confirm that it has been partially accepted. Your assessed claim amount is explained in the table below. A full breakdown of your loan history can be found at the end of this email.

    Please be patient with us in respect of your payment. Payments will be made once all claims have been received and assessed. All claims must be submitted by 30 September 2019 and we expect to have made a payment to successful claimants by 30 January 2020.

    Please be aware, the payment you receive will be significantly smaller than your accepted claim amount. This is because it is expected that the total value of all accepted claims for customers/creditors received will significantly exceed the money available to be shared out. The money available to be shared out will not be known until all of Wonga’s assets have been sold or realised and certain costs and deductions have been taken into account. Accordingly, it is not possible at this stage to estimate what percentage of your accepted claim value will be paid.

    IMPORTANT NOTICE: If your claim was submitted by a third party (for example, a relative, a claims management company or solicitor) then a copy of this email has also been sent to them. Please note that any fees you may have agreed to pay them for their services will need to be settled with them directly. If you have questions regarding your third party’s fees or the service they have provided, you should speak to them directly.

    I think nobody will actually know the full amount until everybody receives an email clarifying this, it is just a shame that like me the number of people having to use companies like Wonga Is so vast.
    When you have no alternative these companies provide a way out but at a huge end cost.

    All I got was it was accepted and to update my last known payment method..

    Anyone know how to find out how much my claim originally for?

    With regards to this Wonga clusterf**k, I too have not yet received any payment not any kind of quote or breakdown of payment. The emails I got are as follows..

    – 29/04/19 – you may be due a refund from Wonga

    – 03/05/2019 – claim submitted and received, no further action required

    – 09/05/2019 – update from joint administrators declaring a dividend

    – 08/11/19 – email regarding contact and payment details are correct and payment will be substantially less than expected (no amount or %)

    – 10/12/19 – email asking for proof of identity and bank account/sort code to be paid into.

    – 11/12/19 – email saying documents have been received.

    At no point have I gotten an email regarding percentage, amount, or date it will be paid. Interest will be paid on any claim up until the date of administration (31/08/18), to the value of 8%. However, this is subject to tax at a rate of 20% as required by law.

    Quote:
    If your claim is accepted, we are required by law to withhold 20% tax from the 8% statutory interest element of the claim amount.

    Further information can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/hmrc-internal-manuals/savings-and-investment-manual/saim9115

    If you have any further questions on this you should seek independent tax advice.

    Looking back at the last 2 emails I recieved, the one at the beginning of January says by the end of this month I will receive a statement and breakdown of what I will be paid , and the on in december says they are EXPECTING to make payment by the end of January,
    It’s looking less likely to me that payments will be made this month as we are only 5 days away from February.

    My last email from Wonga included this line:

    At the end of January, we will communicate by email the amount you will be due to receive as a dividend.

    So I agree with Chris its looks unlikely any money will be forthcoming from them by the 31st January.

    Apparently the email date for confirmation of amounts is today (27th January) with expected payment end of this month. There are still 5 more working days in the month (including today)so I am hoping it will be Friday at the latest. Not sure about these other people claiming they have been paid though! My claim is very similar to the lady above £800 odd and got £60 odd. I was hoping for more but anything is a bonus I suppose. Fingers crossed for everyone 🙂

    Just read this interesting statement on Wonga claims website … note the word IF in the below text.

    ……………………………..

    After your claim has been assessed, payment distributions are made in the following order:

    The costs of realising assets will be paid first.
    Any amounts owing to secured creditors are then settled, followed by employee claims and unsecured claims (such as providers of goods and services and redress claims).
    If, after paying the costs and amounts due to the secured creditors, there are insufficient funds to pay all remaining claims in full then creditors will receive a proportion of their claim

    Just so you are aware NO ONE has been paid out by Wonga yet and anyone who says otherwise is lying which i dont understand as to why. Payments will be made on Friday for EVERYONE who is due payment and the % of what you will receive will be emailed to you directly before this date.

    No sooner no later. If you want to be helpful let everyone else know as soon as you receive your email and then it will be guidance for others. For anyone saying theyve been paid out please stop spreading rumours unless you have concrete evidence showing otherwise… which you wont.

    Our claims portal is now closed and we cannot accept new claims.

    If your claim was successful, payment will be at the end of January 2020. We will only know the amount you will receive just before making the payment. We will email you as soon as we have a confirmed amount.
    Note: We are validating bank details at present so, if your banking details have changed, let us know and we will send you an email with a link to upload your new details.

    My thought is that Grant Thornton have gone radio silent ! With no emails received today by anyone my optimistic view is that they are still squeezing the proverbial out of any Wonga assists left. The Wonga collapse did at the time make big headline news and again last year when parliaments got involved. Grant Thornton won’t want negative press in the percentage payout, as surely many more pay day loan companies are going to go bust. I think they will act swiftly this week within a short period, ie emails Thursday/ payments Friday, and then spend next week making manual payments to people with the wrong bank details etc.

    You must also remember, a couple of things, there are a lot of claims from customers to settle and probably only a couple of people processing them.

    Also bear in mind if they are only releasing payment (Maybe) on the 30th, it will take further time to clear in your account. Its not likely to be a same day payment.

    I was not sure I was even entitled to anything until Wonga themselves sent me a mail to lodge a claim. I have waited this long so a little while more is not going to hurt me and getting anything back is better than nothing.

    It wouldn’t surprise me if emails are today. The payments are extremely likely to be paid by BACS rather than faster payment (given the volume of payments they’ll be making at once). BACS is a standard 3 day transfer so would make sense for amounts to be confirmed today.

They will be collecting as much interest as they can before having to pay out. If anyone has any other questions that aren’t to do with them to expect an email or how much they will be paid I’m more than happy to ask. I expect to be on hold for at least another hour

      WDFC UK Limited – In Administration (the Company)

      The Joint Administrators are now in a position to declare a first and final dividend of 4.3p in the £.

      You will receive a payment of £20.20. Your payment represents 4.3p in the £ on your agreed claim value of £468.64.

    Yeh I’ve just received my email too confirming 4.3p in the pound. It’s a laughable amount but still better than nothing. I’m receiving £779 which should contribute towards a nice holiday. Payment will be received within 4 weeks of the email so not by the end of January as ‘promised’

      4.3p. Was expecting it to be low but not that low. I’ll get £54, was hoping for double that. Almost feel like saying stick it, but better than a kick in the teeth I guess. Plus they did say payment by end of Jan, now they’re saying up to 4 weeks. What a disappointment.

    How do they calculate this cause I went through all the loans I had with them and I had paid £4000 in interest but I got this

    You will receive a payment of £.11. This payment represents 4.3p in the £ on the agreed claim value of £2.64 (Accepted Claim Value).

    What is the point of 11p and I had over 30 loans from them so definitely paid more than £2.64 in interest

      I have received a similar one then one a few minutes later saying that it is referring to interest and is unrelated to my redress claim. I am hoping maybe there might be another email at stupid o’clock explaining further as it is no where near what my accepted claim was.

    One for Hope,

    As you can see, they are not paying at the end of the month and it is not going to be paid even in a few days.

    I have worked with oficial receivers in the past and the realised debts are paid first and payment will be standard BACS which does can take 3 working days from initiation.

    I am a contractor who invoices and pay 20 quid for a same day payment 🙂 So I have not been spreading ficition

    On a brighter note, at least I got 87 quid back. Thasts a couple of just eats

    Cheers

Are you totally mathematically devoid? If people are only getting 4.3p back In the pound and are still getting a few quid back for their problems.. Please grow up or shut up… And find something better to call me than mug or pal.. Its getting boring.. Sound sooo American

    So a bit disappointing but as per jrjr, The Money Shop are also doing something and paying out at the end of the year. They look after the likes of PayDay UK, Ladder Loans to name about 20 and reached out late last year. Claims need to be made by April this year. Just check out their website, you never know, you may have had a loan with one or many of their companies. They have a massive pot compared to Wonga.

    Hi I’ve just read in the newspaper regarding our paltry 4.3% –

    The government has been urged to set up a tax-payer funded compensation scheme to bridge the gap.

    Does anyone have any updates on this.

    Thank you for posting the petition. Other website managers do not seem to think a petition will work and have not promoted it.

    I think we can def get 10,000 signatures for a response from the government.

    Also if you have been personally been effected by these loans I know that local papers would run a story, please mention the petition too…thanks.
