      This is the Wonga claim portal - https://claims.wonga.com/
      If your friend had multiple loans/rollovers etc leading to a write off there could well be a claim for monies paid over the amount borrowed. However the refunds are going to be very low because the company is in administration and it'll be pence per pound. It really depends on your friends individual circumstances whether she wants to put a claim in but the written off loan won't be affected. That may already cover any refund she might have been due had she carried on paying it though.

          You can claim a refund from existing loans and loans you've already paid off, as long as you raise the case within six years of taking out the loan (if it's longer than six years, contact the FOS as in some circumstances, you may still be able to claim)
