Loan shark lends kids money, takes PlayStation

A 37-year-old man has appeared in court in Sheffield on charges of lending money without a license, after it emerged he was lending children as young as 14 money at an interest rate of 100 per cent, and keeping their consoles as security.

The story is too old to be commented.

Is this illegal in Northa america? cuz i lend money to people all the time, and unless they are good friends i usually ask for some form of interest... but nothing as ridiculous as 100%... more like the money and take me out to dinner or something along those lines
