People struggling with financial difficulties are often made to make hard decisions. Sometimes that decision is to borrow money from the local money lender.
This is rarely the answer, and often can turn a bad situation worse. In this harding-hitting video by Trading Standards Scotland, the reality of illegal money lending is shown. Illegal money lenders are not interested in people repaying their loans, but in ensuring people keep paying.
As the video shows, illegal money lenders are happy to make people pay by other means when they miss a payment, often by involving them in criminal activity. For more information contact Trading Standard Scotand on 0800 074 0878 or visit them here
