Stop loan sharks project

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?
  • Did they not give you any paperwork?

Report any issues

If you have answered yes to any of these call 0300 555 2222 or visit the Stop Loan Sharks website.
