Hi there, I'm in need of some advice if possible. I'm contracted to a well established retail company and we have mini shops that rent space within head office one of them being a florist. The florist and his wife run a side job of lending money (loan shark types) which I'm not completely sure the company is aware of. I borrow money from them and pay them back on time every month however this month I was unable to as my lease was (legally) terminated prematurely and I needed deposit money for a new place. I've been intimidated and threatened to the point where I am making empty promises on getting the money to them. Do I have any way of getting them off my back until I can pay them back? Many thanks
