Posted by: newcastle

As the Covid pandemic continues many people are struggling with money worries. Illegal money lenders are active here in Newcastle, offering cash to hard-up families, then demanding the money back, plus extortionate interest. Very often they use threats, and harass their victims by phone, text messages and on the doorstep.

These loan sharks are criminals. They are often violent, and closely linked to organised crime.

If you have a loan debt that keeps growing and you are feeling threatened to repay - you may be involved with a loan shark 

Call this special helpline anytime on 0300 555 2222 or check out this website (link will open in a new window):

If you think someone in your neighbourhood is lending money illegally, you can report them anonymously via this website, too.
