PPG DX330 wax and grease remover. First though I would give it a very good wash with hot water and Dawn dish soap.

WD 40 is mostly a solvent so it won't be as hard to do as if he had maybe used a heavy oil. Did you mean he sprayed the filler too? If so or if there is any chance the WD contacted the filler anywhere I would think it all should be removed and redone besides anyone who would pull a stunt like that would be HIGHLY suspect as to the quality of his work anyway, you may be surprised at what you find under the filler.

The car was sprayed down everywhere, the filler was what concerned me the most too.

I am no expert but I do know that filler is porous and will soak up water like a sponge so I can just imagine how much WD it would absorb, all the way down to the metal! Even if you could get primer to stick to it, which I doubt, it would in all likelihood lose it's grip on the metal eventually and cause major problems. I would remove every trace of the filler and re-prep the metal then go back with a quality product so you will be sure to not have problems.
