The online company, Wonga.com, has come under fire after taking money from a woman who 's never had a loan with them. Leigh Newman from Portsmouth discovered £600 had disappeared from her account. She was a victim of online fraud and feels more should be done to protect people.
Wonga said: "We are processing a refund for Leigh Newman. We regret every case of fraud that gets through and are committed to cracking down on cyber-crime.
"The unique speed of our lending decisions does not undermine their accuracy and our advanced systems catch the majority of criminal attempts. Unfortunately no solution is 100% fool proof but we are never complacent."
