Appeal for Information About Loan Sharks in Devon:

The England Illegal Money Lending Team (IMLT) are appealing for information about loan sharks in Devon.

The Team work in partnership with Devon, Somerset and Torbay Trading Standards and Devon and Cornwall Police to investigate and prosecute loan sharks.

This appeal comes after the IMLT carried out a recent operation locally. Tony Quigley, Head of the Illegal Money Lending Team, said: “We understand how difficult it can be for loan shark victims to come forward and report, but we would like to reassure the public that help and support is available.”

“Any piece of information, no matter how small, can make a real difference in ridding our communities of this crime. If you or someone you know has been the victim of a loan shark, please call our confidential hotline on 0300 555 2222 or visit www.stoploansharks.uk.”
