As Christmas draws closer, so do the loan sharks who are always looking for their next prey especially during Christmas time. This is because the cost and added pressures of the Christmas holidays tempt those with financial difficulties to borrow from a loan shark.
M for Money has teamed up with The England Illegal Money Lending Team (IMLT) with a Christmas Campaign #AllIWantForChristmas to raise awareness of the dangers of using loan sharks and promote the support available to victims and their families.
Loan sharks have a reputation of threatening their victims and family thereby creating added stress on the victims. If you have had an encounter with a loan shark or know someone who has, the Stop Loan Sharks are here to take the stress away!
Safely report the loan shark to turn the Christmas magic back on.
You can call them 24/7 on 0300 555 2222 or start a Live Chat with them via their website: www.stoploansharks.co.uk.
Let’s stop the loan sharks this Christmas and bring back the joy of Christmas.
