Firm successfully persuades authorities not to commence criminal investigation in respect of Wonga’s debt collection practices

Peters & Peters advised Wonga in relation to a potential City of London Police investigation into letters threatening legal action that were sent to its customers purporting to be from law firms that didn’t actually exist. The firm made detailed representations to the police, which resulted in a decision not to proceed further, despite media calls for an investigation.
