    Got trapped by wonga a few months back and ended up being heavily skint for a month to pay the fucker off. If you can avoid using it do so, worse than credit cards in my opinion. Especially if you have absolutely no self control after a few beers like me.

    Literally just got a 150 quid wonga loan about 20 minutes ago.

    Gonna pay it back on the 28th (day after payday). Im still in my first month of my new job, so im still skint.
    It wasnt a good decision, seeing as i already owe 500 quid on my credit card and maxed it out (set my own credit limit at 500 so i didnt go mad).

    But i wanna get the girlfriend shit for valentines day, get tickets to go see her at uni and i dont want to have to worry about money too much. I'll easily be able to pay off my credit card and my wonga loan on payday, and then i can just be frugal (sp?) next month, but i'll still have money.

    Theyre a good idea, as ive instantly stopped worrying about money. But definitely no substitution for being sensible with money.

    Yeah man, i agree, theyre terrible. But its helped me out, and i know i can pay it back on pay day so im not bothered if it helps me out right now. I know they take advantage of people, but its called a payday loan for a reason, short term loans can ber life savers. Like over christmas and, like my example, valentines day lol.

    They are good for emergencies but it would have to be a real big one for me to take a loan I think, and yeah the marketing team got it spot on with that one

    Thats the thing, its not really a proper loan, its not like you'd get a wonga loan to buy a car or be able to pay your mortgage, its literally for if your a bit short that month.

    Well, personally i like wonga, theyve let me buy train tickets to see the gf, and left me with enough cash for cigs and food and a new shirt for work. But its not something id rely on. Once the cash flow picks up after my first paycheck i'll hopefully never have to use it again lol.

    They already have you trapped mate :D

    The thing is I agree, but next month you'll fall short of cash and do the same thing if you are like me. Then they just keep taking that £25 a month. Month by month, leaching your soul.

    Haha, thats the thing, im gonna get paid around £1,300 after tax, 500 pays my credit card off, 170ish pays wonga off. I get the rest, im just careful for a month, then can resume as normal from the month after lol.

    The different between this month and next month is i started this month with no money, thats why i took the wonga loan lol.

    i hate these cringe adverts! They obviously have a good idea how simple minded young society is.

    im guessing they're aiming for youngsters who have the IQ of a jeremy kyle contestant. Other ones like "quick cover" and "webuyanycar", embarrassingly childish adverts considering they are selling insurance and loans and such.

    also this is just another terrible stigma of drum and bass provided
