Wonga executives need to look at their consciences and ask if they have done enough to compensate customers threatened with debt collection by fake law firms,
He turned up political pressure on Wonga after it was ordered to pay more than £2.6m compensation for sending threatening letters to customers from non-existent law firms.
Speaking on his LBC 97.3 radio show, Clegg said the government was capping "sky-high interest rates" charged by payday lenders, but Wonga should think about whether it could do more to make amends.
"I think Wonga need to look into consciences and ask whether they have done enough to address the harm they have done," he said.
He said on Wednesday: "This is not the proudest day in Wonga's history … We would like to apologise unreservedly to anyone affected by the historical debt collection activity and for any distress caused as a result. The practice was unacceptable and we voluntarily ceased it nearly four years ago."
