Stop loan sharks
Stop Loan Sharks, part of the England Illegal Money Lending Team, investigate and prosecute loan sharks. They are the lead organisation in England with the power to prosecute loan sharks and illegal money lenders. Since 2004, they have helped over 26,000 people who have borrowed from loan sharks.
