    Is this the News Splash for Wonga.Com before the Fall!

    [​IMG]

    There is mass of publicity in the UK tabloids re

    Wonga.Com

    The news is showcasing :-

    ? Highlighting Mega Profits
    ? Fast Cars
    ? Mansions and Luxury Homes


    Is this history repeating itself and can we now expect the police to move in on what may be ?WhiteCollar Crime? ? like Tax Evasion ? Fraud who knows a lot of crimes could be possible prosecution options?

    One relevant comment:-

    Anyone who thinks the big profits Wonga announced this week is a sign of a healthy British market needs their head examined.

    This type of lending is toxic. Every day I get an email from one of my constituents who is in financial difficulty as a result of a short-term loan.

    There?s hundreds of these companies and some of them are bleeding communities dry.

    Two excellent informative and knowledgeable posts by jimbobo2779 and SEOWhizz thank you both for your valued input!

    I should like to add that the honchos who run many of these typical outfits live large often in a style reminiscent of gangsters yet the government and regulators keep renewing their trading license - which is nothing more than a disguised extortion tool to rip money from the poor and needy! Plus of course the foolhardy and irresponsible too!
