Debt consolidation loans through lenders and licensed finance brokers could provide the answer to people who are looking to avoid loan sharks, as a number of places in the UK launch awareness campaigns about illegal lenders.
Following on from successes for the National Illegal Money Lending Team in other areas of the country, weeks of action have begun in Sale and Pontefract to inform people about the alternatives they have if they need to borrow money.
If you are approached by what you believe may be an illegal loan lender or believe you are dealing with an illegal loan lender then you can contact your local trading standards to try and get help.
Future generations may not have the same problems with loan sharks, with Tony Quigley from the National Illegal Money Lending Team telling BBC Breakfast that packs will be made available for schools to educate children about how to better manage their money.
The packs are apparently funded by the proceeds recovered from illegal lenders and should help young people get a good grounding in being financially responsible.
