Loansharks are increasingly sending unsolicited loan advertisements via text messages or online platforms.
Members of the public are reminded not to reply or respond to such advertisements, and report the number as spam. The public can call the Police at 999 or the X-Ah Long hotline at 1800-924-5664 if they suspect or know of anyone who could be involved in loansharking activities.
I got 7 such SMS just yesterday alone and already 1 SMS today. Seems they are trying hard. One group gets shutdown, another will emerge. If would-be victims see this thread early, more will report and the quicker another "cell" can be shutdown.

As it usually starts with such SMS.Must nip the problem in the bud.

I say the SPF, Govt and telcos need to collaborate to stop UMLs adverts soon.I can only suggest these numbers be suspended for investigations after being flagged. Report thru i-witness portal is one way.

I hope none who are victims here are those arrested recently. If they are, I'm NOT sorry for them, paying dues for crimes is worst than paying the UMLs.

Report UML SMS : i-witness.
