    so, seeing as i'm leaving the country for an unspecified amount of time....and i could do with a a few decent nights out before i go in may...

    was considering taking out a wonga loan, that i wont be able to pay back. But my current address will no longer be mine, my UK bank account will be abandoned, and i won't be in the country until, well, i don't know.

    now i know a few people who've taken loans out from them and they've never bothered chasing it, and others who've ended up in about £2000+ debt that they're still chasing.

    what do you reckon would happen? don't wanna get back to the UK to find myself in a shit-ton of debt 2 years down the line.

    Idiotic thing to do.

    Wonga are evil enough as it is when you pay them on time... Let alone borrowing their money and fucking off to another country.


    Besides, you can only borrow like 400 quid from wonga. Pointless. if your gonna do it do it right and get like a £50,000 loan and jump ship.
    For less than a grand its not worth the hassle (and possible jail time).

    So i knocked loads of these companies before. My credit is fucked as i had to go through a debt relief order a few years back. I knocked about 3 over christmas for just short of a grand. Im at the 'we've sold your debt to a collection company' stage now so i get constant threats from these people. Threats, thats the key word here. Everytime i speak to them they ask me to confirm my address and date of birth. Now unfortunately for these poor saps i have never signed a contract or had dealings with their company so i decline to divulge this information. They have no right to collect my money, thats why they use the colour red in their letters and send big boys with gold chains to your door. Its intimidation that stops people from ever questiining why this thugs at your door. Fuck that, im exercising my right to take the piss out of these spunk monkeys the same way they take the piss out of the needy.
    One of these companies is quick quid, which is funny because last time they lent me 200 of their quick quids i did the same. After declining offers of just paying back 190, 170 and 135 the debt eventually got written off and some years later they lent me more.
    So long as you dont mind your credit score being effected go for it. Just if they do send the big boys round tell them in which direction they can fuck off ;)
    Yours sincerely,
    RDT (shitizens advice)
