Police in are advising members of the public of a Pay Day Loan scam.
Aimed at those most in need of a bit of extra cash during the leaner times of the month, this scam asks people to pay an administration fee of £85 – £250 upfront, before receiving any monies. Once this money has been received the victim receives no money at all and is left the poorer of the upfront fee, adding more pressure to the situation.
