Financial crime and illegal money lending- Lunch and Learn Session

May 12 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

WSAB are extremely excited to announce that the Illegal Money Lending Team will be leading on our upcoming Lunch and Learn Session on Financial Crime.

With the cost of living sharply increasing many adults may borrow money to pay bills and make it to pay day. Not every family finds it easy to access mainstream credit and some turn to ‘friends’ to borrow money to get by. Loan sharks start off disguised as ‘friends’ in the community but when people start to struggle to repay their loan they target vulnerability, often making the amount up that the victim is forced to repay. Even a small loan of £20 can easily spiral meaning the victims are forced to repay £1000’s back becoming trapped in a cycle of debt.

This Lunch and Learn session will consider the following:

  • What is a loan shark
  • Who are the Illegal Money Lending Team
  • Hints and tips to spot loan shark activity
  • Support for victims
    • Safeguarding and confidentiality
    • Latest trends
    • How you can help
