The Project, made up of three national teams (England, Scotland and Wales) is funded by the National Trading Standards Board and works in partnership with local Trading Standards Authorities. The Project has so far secured more than 255 prosecutions for illegal money lending and related activity leading to prison sentences in excess of 165 years. £40.3 million worth of illegal debt has been written off by the Team and more than 20,000 loan shark victims have been helped.
