Loan Sharks

Published: 24 March 2020

During this exceptional period of time, the Illegal Money Lending Team (England) recognise that many people may come under increased financial pressure. The team is committed to ensuring loan sharks do not take advantage of this situation and the possible hardship that people experience.

The Stop Loan Sharks helpline service (0300 555 2222) remains open and fully operational during the COVID-19 pandemic. We encourage not only victims but friends, family members and the wider community to come forward if they suspect someone is suffering at the hands of a loan shark.
