Loan adverts to get ‘watch out’ warning

TV, radio, internet and print advertising for consumer loans must include a warning from April 1, the financial services authority AFM said on Monday.

In future all adverts for cash loans must carry the pay-off ‘Watch out, borrowing money costs money’. The aim is to make consumers more aware of the risk of taking out loans, the AFM said.
