Credit companies are using the Facebook social networking site to target young people, a debt charity has warned.
Credit Action says adverts promising cheap loans for people with poor credit ratings are appearing on the site and many break advertising regulations.

Credit Action says many of the adverts contravene UK credit advertising regulations, usually by failing to give details of interest rates.
