Don’t get sharked this Christmas warn Lincolnshire’s illegal money lending team


The illegal money lending team is cracking down this Christmas on loan sharks who cause nothing but misery in communities.

The Stop Loan Sharks Project, in partnership with Lincolnshire Trading Standards, aims to raise awareness of loan sharks to put an end to this callous crime and encourage the public to celebrate the season without turning to an illegal money lender.

The message is clear – what may seem like a small loan to tide people over for Christmas, could end up costing them well into the New Year and beyond. The effect is not just financial, the impact on the lives of victims and their families can be horrific.

To highlight the devastating effects on victims, a video compilation of real life victim’s stories has been released. People who have suffered at the hands of loan sharks explain in their own words how horrendous their experiences were.
