Stop Loan Sharks Project
Stop and think:
• Have you, or anyone you know, been offered a cash loan?
• Have you been threatened when you couldn’t pay?
• Has your benefit card been taken from you?
• Does what you owe keep growing even though you are making payments?
• Do you know the total amount owed, the APR interest or how to cancel?
If you have answered yes to any of these call 0300 555 2222
Nationally the Stop Loan Sharks project has so far helped more than 11,500 people, written off more than £31million of illegal debt and secured more than 60 years in prison sentences for illegal lending and other offences.
The specialist illegal money lending team, situated within Birmingham City Trading Standards, will investigate and prosecute illegal money lenders and help vulnerable people access affordable credit and financial advice..
