The Ministry of Consumer Affairs has set up a new freephone service "to help empower and protect consumers from being preyed on by unscrupulous loan companies".
The service offers help:
with loan and credit problems from free disputes resolution services; and
when loan companies have acted irresponsibly or illegally.
