BE A LOAN SHARKby nANCI mEEK
"Loan Sharking is a time tested and noble profession."- Louie Leadpipe USP Boron
The backbone of the American Mafia, sports betting
in Las Vegas has placed a time honored tradition into
the forefront of American Business. It's so easy
you don't need a college degree. Just a calculator.
Dean Shargels Commencement Speech
Wiseguy or not, this profession is
open to anyone. Of course if you are Italian,
you have an advantage. But hey, anyone can
pass for Italian these days. Just watch Sopranos.
Connected or not, being a loan shark can help you
get your foot in the door to any organized Crime
Family from Brooklyn to California
With the rise in Casino Gambling, Riverboat Casinos,
Indian Gaming legislation, the Shylocking profession is
experiencing a boom like never before. Last year Forbes
Magazine declared Loan Sharking the
fastest growing profession.
I was on parole and couldn't borrow
money from a real bank so I called 1800-Shy Lock
and before you could say "Ouch! Not my legs!"
I had a loan. Thanks Sharkey!- Nicky "Paper cut" C.

- Carmella "Don't #$%@ with me " Soprano
Drug dealers,compulsive gamblers, Talk show hosts,
even women need a loan once in a while.
My ex husband was becoming a royal
pain in the ass. So I called 1 800-Shy-Lock

now give the creep a beatin'" I had the
money! Thanks Mr. Sharkey

So whether youse need to bury a
boss or co-worker, pay for your
girlfriends abortion or you just wanna

table......Sharkey's has what you need!
At Sharkeys, our guys are placed
through rigorous training, which
involves math calculations, batting
practice, phone etiquette,
and psycho-therapy. We teach
them to be there when you need them.
It's not just about lending money and
keeping track of the vig, It's about people.
What exactly is a Vig or Interest?
Instructor Carmen Milano:
This "interest rate" is known as a vig, or as juice. It is measured in "points".
To make it simple one "point" is 1,000, for a 10,000 to 100,000 dollar loan.
On a 50,000 loan, a wiseguy's juice would be 2 to 3 points.
If you are unconnected the juice can be as high
as 3 to 5 points (normally 5) a week.
And that's where Sharkey's can help

At Sharkey's our loan sharks are taught
etiquette and people skills. We like to avoid the
embarrassing phone calls to your wife so
it is our policy to meet the client at their work
or summon them to a local hangout and over
a drink and Connie Francis records DISCUSS
their financial records.
I've been in this business for 35 years
not counting the 12 years I did in Nellis and Lewisburg
Federal . And one thing is for sure
if we can avoid violence we will. Nobody
wants to hurt nobody. But sadly, some
people don't understand that concept until
it's too late. - JJ "My Dad's really pissed" Gotti
It's Sharkeys! Not Shakeys!
We Order Out For Pizza We don't make 'em.

When you don't pay your vig, then it
is time for us to Play Ball. - Tony Brown
I usually waited 3 weeks and after that, it
was batter up, if youse know what I mean.
I was bustin' my balls 6 nights a week as a Chippendale's dancer. Skin Flicks
and being paid for my sexual favors just wasn't paying the bills. But thanks
to 1 800 Shy Lock I'm dancing my way through life bustin' heads and
collectin' pay offs. Thanks Sharkel or
whatever your name is. - Sexy Stevie

My father, my father's father, and his father ran
the numbers and did some pimping.Not me
I knew I could do better. - Joey "It wasn't me, I swear" C.
When I saw Sharkey's Ad I couldn't resist
and today my wife and I live in a
mansion in Westchester. I'm 32 years old,
and after seeing my skills with a baseball bat
George Steinbrenner himself offered me
a job with the New York Yankees.
Thanks to 1 800 Shy Lock

How do you do it? Simple. First start taking bets
from friends, neighbors, co-workers, not
forgetting to keep the payoff, just a little under the bet.
Before you know it people bring in new people, and
you my friend are a BOOKIE! But don't youse forget
to kick a little upstairs, capisce?
Since graduatin' from Sharkeys Career
Academy I ain't held down a steady job.
What the $^%&$ for? The hours are
great and my golf swing is improvin'

Social Security wasn't enough. The
Massage Parlours we ran barely paid
the rent. Me and some of the

down for a hair cut. And before you knew
it we were running Second Floor Casinos
We had Brooklyn locked up. We
