Acireale, usury is a family affair: insane interest rates, up to 40% a month

The investigations, conducted by the Economic-Financial Police Unit of Catania, made it possible to reconstruct the usury activity carried out by the 4 suspects. As it emerged, the loans were granted to people in financial difficulty, with the promise of helping them overcome the difficulties. However, the conditions were so harsh that it was impossible to repay the debt.
