Beware Loan Sharks Online

The England Illegal Money Lending Team (IMLT) have launched a new campaign aimed at tackling illegal money lending on the internet and warning of the dangers of online loan sharks.The campaign comes amid concerns more people are falling prey to unscrupulous lenders online as statistics show one in five victims met their lender on social media in the first half of 2020.Loan sharks are increasingly using social media platforms, such as Facebook,Instagram and Snapchat, to advertise their illegal loans and target potential victims.These criminals will lure people in with seemingly attractive loan offers but will quickly resort to intimidation, threats and violence to enforce repayment and trap borrowers in a spiral of debt.Fusion Credit Union offers affordable loans.

October 15, 2020, International Credit Union (ICU) Day celebrates the spirit of the global credit union movement.

The day is recognized to reflect upon the credit union movement’s history, promote its achievements, recognise hard work and share member experiences. International Credit Union (ICU) Day has been celebrated on the third Thursday of October since 1948. The ultimate goal is to raise awareness about the tremendous work that credit unions and other financial cooperatives are doing around the world and give members the opportunity to get more engaged. The day of festivities for credit unions and financial cooperatives globally includes fundraisers, open houses, contests, picnics, volunteering and parades. This year’s theme is “Inspiring hope for a global community.” On October 15, 2020, join your global credit union family as we celebrate the 72nd anniversary of ICU Day!

Bromford Tenants-Special Loan Rate

The important bits:

Lending is subject to meeting the criteria set out by Fusion Credit Union.

You must have access to a bank account and set up a standing order before you get your loan.

Interest rates are typically 3% per month. We offer interest rate reductions for people who have paid off one loan and come back for a second.

We will agree a regular repayment which we both think you can afford. Unlike many other lenders, there is no penalty for early repayment with Fusion Credit Union.

You will need to be a member of Fusion Credit Union. There is a £2 joining fee.

All members of Fusion Credit Union are expected to be savers with us. Minimum savings usually start at £1 per week.
