Speaking in a recent interview, the acting Chairman of FCCPC, Adamu Abdullahi, said: “It would soon be history in the country that online platforms that many people know as loan sharks, where some Nigerians access money quickly to solve urgent issues

However, if they don’t pay back on time, some of these loan companies send unpleasant messages with their picture to all their contacts. This hara$$ment has caused many problems in Nigeria, as some people even lose their jobs because of embarra$$ment & disgrace

We do not agree with that kind of practice because customers are being hara$$ed, even though it’s not directly our problem. We have involved CBN, NITDA, EFCC, & the Human Rights Commission to form a committee to address the issue

Since we found out that they operate online & have no physical offices or managing directors, we approached Google & Apple stores to take down all their Apps
