Stop Loan Sharks

Stop Loan Sharks


Stop Loan Sharks investigate and prosecute loan sharks. Our official title is the England Illegal Money Lending Team. We are the lead organisation in England with the power to prosecute loan sharks and illegal money lenders.

Since 2004, we have helped over 29,000 people who have borrowed from loan sharks.

If someone is lending you money they must be registered with the Financial Conduct Authority.
