Mr. Sharkey So whether youse need to bury a boss or co-worker, pay for your girlfriends abortion or you just wanna place a grand on 32 Red at the roulette 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
What Happens When I Don't Pay? Bruce "die hard" Cutler 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

Mr. Sharkey 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.
