Around 5 PM. At the time that me will be still working then she/he ask whether there is other person the can call from her to pick up so I give then my home number and parents cause they will be at home on that day .after all this she/he said that will bank transfer me the amount cause she/he dont wantto bring to much cash around and I ok with it .she/he ask me to send a picture of my Address in my ic cause scare of scammer online .I think is is also true of what she/he and I did it.

After all that ,the next day I call the number but cannot get true and I forget it since I got no lose of anything.but after a few day I received an whatapp text and some call for unknown person said that I have taken a loan for them and want me to repay the the amount that they ask or they will send people to my home .at that point of time I was scare and worry about it and I do the transfer amount that they require it hope everything will end but later the still call and text me ,even threaten me the they will lock and print and burn my home .and now they are still call me for it . I am super lost now .and what should I do and will they truly come to my home and do it . I need some advice for you all .
Have you made police report? If not, please do it now.

This is something new here, in terms of tactics. Am I right to say that you had transferred back the money (no more and no less than) what they had transferred back to you?

Do let your family members know that you had been scammed and they are in the loop and know how to react “if” they were to really visit you. I know you are feeling lost now but the police will be able to guide you along.

Our police treat these type of cases seriously and do keep your correspondences (SMS/Whatsapp) and show the police.
