Loan sharks are people who lend money without the necessary permissions. This is a criminal offence. They frequently charge high rates of interest and can harass, intimidate and beat up their victims to ensure re-payments.

The Stop Loan Sharks project is run by Trading Standards and has been working across England for a number of years, raising awareness of the perils of using loan sharks, prosecuting them and supporting their victims.

The Stop Loan Sharks project have launched an online quiz, to give one lucky person the chance to win £100 of shopping vouchers. Two runners up will each receive a goody bag. It will take no longer than 10 minutes to complete.
