Timely reminder from Scottish Illegal Money Lending Unit
Unit highlights the dangers posed by illegal money lenders
In the run up to Christmas, the Scottish Illegal Money Lending Unit, part of Trading Standards Scotland, has published a video on You Tube highlighting the dangers posed by illegal money lenders, particularly at this time of the year.
The film is entitled It’s Not The Answer, and the unit hopes that organisations such as housing associations and co-operatives will promote the video to the wider community. This is the Christmas version of the film; the unit plans to release other additions throughout the year, with the next available early in 2018. This unit will also be raising awareness of the issue of illegal money lending using the hashtags #IDontKnowWhereToGo and #IDontKnowWhatToDo
The unit provides training for staff and members of the community, along with awareness raising materials. If you would like further details on the work of the Scottish Illegal Money Lending or to discuss how your organisation could work together with the unit, please contact Partnership and Support Officer John Pollock or the team on 0141 577 3534 or using the Freephone number 0800 074 0878.
