What is a loan shark?

A loan shark is someone who lends money without the permission required by the Financial Conduct Authority to individuals or companies whom they believe are “fit and proper.” Victims are not only charged astronomical rates of interest, but very often face violence, intimidation or blackmail if they fall behind with their payments.
