swimming with the loan sharks

Find out what happened when Matthew borrowed £20 from a loan shark.

Going into prison – or coming out – can be a tight time for money. After Matthew was released, he turned to someone he thought he could trust to borrow some cash, but things quickly spiralled out of control.

We’ve made this video with the Stop Loan Sharks campaign to share his story.

If you’re affected, or you know someone who is, you can get confidential help from the Illegal Money Lending Team.
