The England Illegal Money Lending Team (IMLT) campaign promoting the Stop Loan Sharks message was launched on 30th November 2015. The IMLT will lead the campaign with support from partner organisations.
Around 310,000 people use a loan shark each year. A loan shark is someone who lends money without the correct permission from the Financial Conduct Authority. Loan sharks may initially appear friendly but they will often use violence and intimidation to ensure they get their money, causing borrowers endless misery.
The IMLT want to ensure that everyone knows what a loan shark is and more importantly how to report one.
