Stop Loan Sharks


Do you know what a loan shark is? If you have borrowed money from someone who offered you a cash loan but didn’t give you any paperwork and he or she is now wanting you to pay it back with a huge amount of interest attached you may have been the victim of a loan shark. If you are frightened of the person who loaned you the money because they have threatened you or your family or have taken valuables from you such as bank cards, passport or your watch you are certainly the victim of a loan shark.
There is an organisation called Stop Loan Sharks that investigates and prosecutes loan sharks.
