UK's Scariest Debt Collector (Full Length)

114083 ratings | 25121953 views
Ten years ago Shaun Smith was an enforcer for one of the biggest crime families in Liverpool and embroiled in a war against a rival drug gang. Shaun introduced urban terrorism to the British underworld. He sprayed up houses with machine guns, tortured people and used homemade napalm to firebomb his enemies. Today, after a spell of five years in prison for firearms offenses, he is trying to transfer those skills to the legal economy by working as a debt collector in the northern English satellite town of Warrington.

I though guns were illegal there and there wasn’t gun crime? Nice to know it’s mixed in well with napalm and grenade attacks

This dude would not last ONE DAY in America as a debt collector Two things would happen First thing - They would laugh in his face Second thing - O.B.E. - One Behind the Head

I admire that fact that you obviously think this guy is a bully and a bit of a twat. But, shooting him seems a bit unjustified. Especially considering that there would be a reason for him to visit you. Not trolling, just pointing out that shooting does not solve anything.

I've never seen or heard of anything like this in america, you threaten anyone and you're in for a lawsuit. Let alone going to there work and making threats. I wonder why that is. Are we american's just prone to dipping out and calling the police?

i saw this documentary half a decade ago when it was released back in 2013. something drew me to shaun and nat so deeply. i don't know if it was that i could feel their genuine pain and that i respect them for that, or if it's just a really good doc. either way, i still think about them both all the time. wondering where they are now. i still come back to this from time to time.

These guys are gay! They're not locked up. Why are they fucking guys in the ass? To collect money? So if a guy owes you money, you rape him and take pictures? Yeah that's gay. There's other ways to collect besides having sex with another dude. Who even thought of this. That never even crossed my mind.

Outting those dudes selling gear in his gym on camera is truly gangster. Wtf is that that's real low down dirty narc stuff right there def not a boss move. Yea just ignore the cameras while I humiliate you with a few slaps AND THEN demand a piece of the action gtfo something was either fake and scripted or the dude is a total fake that would never happen in the real drug world unless of course the boss is a fake narc scumbag. Not saying he doesn't have a right to keep his house in order but on camera and with humiliating smacks gtfo

*Any guy that wants a true test of how tough they really are should go and do 5 years in The French Foreign Legion. Those are the toughest guys I’ve ever witnessed. Not just physically and mentally with endurance but in Street fights in Africa or France and carrying out operations in all weathers with sleep deprived.*

I know a guy just like them who joined the FFL and got thrown out ,because a group of russians started on him and he threw one of them out of a second floor building and the russian landed badly and died. Some of these guys really are tough, others are talkers and show boaters.
Sometimes, just sometimes, VICE strikes gold. It doesn't happen often but this is one of those pieces that restores my faith in the otherwise SJW crap. 10/10.
Why does collecting money or debt have to be a physical confrontational thing? Why does there need to be a "Scariest Debt Collector"? Either someone legally owes the money to someone or they don't. If they don't, leave them alone. If they do, any normal person should be able to go and collect it. If they attacked someone for doing their job, they should be in prison.

@ian1 After watching the video, Shaun comes across like a likeable guy. He's done some criminal activity in the past but he's doing his best to make a better life now and within the law. That's respectable. The thumbnail picture of the video is misleading. I though it was the bald guy with the tats that was him, but he was the one that got smacked around. Things work differently in the UK vs US. I only found out about debt collecting this way recently. In the US they don't send someone like Shaun to collect debts, but they send it off to debt collectors who hound someone with phone calls and such. The only time someone might show up to collect something is when they miss their payments on their house, car, boat, plane(since they don't really "own" those things, since they haven't fully paid for them yet)...then they send a re-possessor to pick up those things or kick someone out of a residence. It's legal, so the ones not paying up can't interfere because they're not in the right according to the law. They can't get physical, nor can the re-possessors. Sometimes it does happen, but if it does the law will have to intervene. The only ones I worry about are the Bounty Hunters. They're a whole different subject.

high court enforcement officers aka sheriffs are at the very top of collecting. as the name says , they have the high court behind them. they can do pretty much what they want to get whats owed. if you physically assault them they do it back. sherrifs are always big knuckle dragging men
That's what I'm talking about. But they sent skinny women and guys sometimes to do those collections. I think it would be better to just get rid of the sort of people who get physical. It is against the law after all.
ian1 (3 days ago)
i watch those shows too, and sometimes the client likes to get physical with the collectors. not everybody will just stand there while youre towing their 50 grand motor away. you have to be able to handle yourself.
Not anymore, he is collecting real debts now. There are other shows too that do similar things too and it annoys me how they have to be hard or pretend to be hard. It shouldn't need to be like that.
