I think I can steer TS in the direction of another loan shark who operates or used to operate in the Doncaster region. the sooner these people are put out of business the better. I wonder how he will fare in jail?

Trouble is DL, there are so many and they prey on the non-informed vulnerable who cannot borrow monies in the conventional mannerand usually on housing estates...very sad, very bad

Oh so true. When I lived in Doncaster, on the street where our house was, the loan sharks preyed on the vulnerable. i would get so angry with them and their victims. In the end if they need 25.00 for a week I would give it to them rather than have the loan shark lend it to them. Not once was I let down. One lady needed 200,00 in a hurry, I had the money, she borrowed it from me. She paid it back over ten weeks and no interest. I think I had about 500.00 out at any one time and when we moved everyone I had lent money to had repaid me without me having to ask for it. I was looked after by the same people. i would find little presents on my doorstep and always an invitation to sahre an evening meal with someone at their house. I realised now just how enriched my life was by an act of kindness and word soon spread about the Australian lady. I might add most of my neighbours were Travellers and not once was any of our property touched and my house was well protected when we went away. I did not know what a Traveller was back then and I counted myself so lucky to have shared this part of my life with them.

Just a thought and there's no harm in thinking.But could the loan sharks be linked to something bigger.And the reason I think that is quiet simple I have to work on housing estates I've always lived on housing estates so I know what goes on.And from what I know it would be bigger than the CCA thread OTR.

Did you hear about the one who got a suspended sentence yesterday. 500 and the lady ended up paying 88,000.00. A suspended sentence???? Was it the local Magistrates or some Judge who really doesn't understand the situation?

Of course the loan sharks are linked to something bigger it's called organised crime.

I wonder if he would have got a similar sentance if he had sold 88,000 worth of pirate DVD's?


No mention of any money being confiscated under The Proceeds of Crime?
