Loan Shark With Interest Rates Of 400,000% According To Wail

Recommended Posts


A loan shark who has 21 children by nine different women was today jailed for targeting his own family and charging interest rates of up to 400,000 per cent.

Chris Harvey - who described himself as the 'patriarch of the family' - preyed on vulnerable relatives by seizing their benefit money and lending it back to them at a higher rate.

Harvey, 53, who has been unemployed for 16 years, helped himself to £22,000 of family members' benefits as 'repayments' which left them unable to afford food or even hot water.

Prosecutor Timothy Evans said: 'It was deliberate and sustained abuse of vulnerable members of his own family.

I'm surprised Wall Street or the City aren't after his talents.
