Loan Sharks

A loan shark is someone lending money without a licence from the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).

Unlicensed money lenders or ‘Loan Sharks’ are operating illegally.

You should be aware that they:

  • Rarely give any paperwork, making it difficult to track repayments
  • Often use threatening behaviour
  • Charge extremely high rates of interest
  • Take your bank cards as ‘security’
  • Are often involved in other criminal activity

If you have concerns then you can check if a lender has a licence using the Consumer Credit Register on the FCA’s website.

If a lender isn’t listed as having a current licence, don’t borrow money from them.

What to do if you have borrowed from a loan shark

You are under no legal obligation to repay the debt from a loan shark. You should contact the Financial Conduct Authority’s consumer hotline immediately on 0800 111 6768.
