Swan Credit Union is ready to ‘bite back’ at illegal loan sharks that prey on vulnerable individuals’ circumstances. ‘Bite Back’ campaign is the product of a collaboration between The England Illegal Money Lending Team, and Swan Credit Union to raise awareness of the dangers of borrowing from loan sharks. From 1 September to 31 December, the first 50 people who save regularly for 3 months/13 weeks (£65 minimum) – will receive a £25 reward paid into their account. This bonus scheme is being funded from the Government’s Illegal Money Lending Team, which is responsible for prosecuting loan sharks.
If you are starting to think about Christmas and how you are going to pay for all the presents you have to buy, as well as the extra food and drink, now is a very good time to join Swan Credit Union. We have another special bonus available to encourage you! From 1 September the first 100 new loans over £1000 issued to new members, or existing members who have not previously borrowed from the Credit Union, will receive a £25 bonus paid into their CU savings account.
