My husband is furious and my son is making no effort to pay off the loans.

We are in our early 60s and shouldn’t be going through all of this at our age.

It’s so stressful that we are struggling to sleep at night.

We haven’t got any savings to help him out, and we don’t know if the loan companies will start taking proceedings against our house.

Our son’s partner, who is 28, doesn’t know about any of this and he insists he cannot tell her.

DEIDRE SAYS: You keeping your son’s secret is playing into his problem.

He has committed fraud by setting up those loans without your knowledge.

You can now get guidance on best next steps forward from the Citizens Advice (citizensadvice.org.uk).
