Penicuik CAB is offering assistance with the effects of payday loans

Penicuik Citizens Advice Bureau has launched a campaign to help victims of payday loans fight back and end their misery.

The Bureau will help people who have taken out loans to identify when their lender has broken the rules and advise them of what action they can take.

The campaign comes nine months after 90 per cent of payday lenders signed up to a good practice charter.

Penicuik CAB assistant manager Russell Gray said: “The behaviour of some payday loans companies is causing many problems and considerable upset for a lot of local people.

“We see these people every day now at our office in Penicuik.”
