Adviceto dealwith loanshark problem
The Scottish Illegal Money Lending Unit (SIMLU) is running a dedicated advice site to support Monklands residents who are struggling to deal with loan sharks.
The unit has also expanded its network of organisations operating in communities which help residents to report illegal loan shark activity safely.
Fiona Richardson, chief officer of Trading Standards Scotland, said: “We will work together to promote the message that you should not use loan sharks, but also to make sure that, where somebody has ended up using an illegal money lender, they know where to go to receive the appropriate help and assistance.
“If your organisation would be interested in signing up to the Charter Mark, or if you would like more information, please get in touch.”
