Can I sue a loan shark?
I was wondering if I can sue a loan shark because his rates were too high and he was blackmailing me so he can get money to me from time to time. I am scared to death that someday he will not just ask for money but also ask me to do a different illegal task for him in order to pay my debt. If ever I can sue him, is there a protection the court will give me if ever I did file a lawsuit?

Yes, a loan shark can be sued because there is a loan shark prevention act. You can only sue a loan shark if you have paid for more than 15% interest on any loan. All the overcharge will be refunded and it also includes all the interest and charges it had given. And adding that he is harrassing the victim, he can be reported to local trading standards office and to the police immediately.
