My son was on drugs number of years and borrowed heavily

Customer Question

My son was on drugs for a number of years and borrowed heavily from my wife and I to the tune of £55,000. He died recently and without any hope of recovering his debt to us we are practically broke. A week ago a loan shark presented himself and said my son owes him £1,800 and threatened violence if we do not pay. The police are monitoring the siuation, but surely his debt has nothing to do with us. Please advise.
