Hi . Im new here. I am goin thru the harassment stage. I borrowed $600. I was forced to random reasons for the deferment amount which is $200 for 4 times different weeks and when its promised for clearance which is $800 they suddenly said that one not counted they threaten me to pay another $800 if wanna close the loan. Which i refused i kept saying a deal is a deal have black and white somemore they promise to close the loan. So after I refused they started the o$p$ to my ic, whatsapp pics of my fren. I quickly called the police when they threatened to come to my house and see what they can do. With the police advise to create a report i went to my npc made a report and installed 3 cctvs. Now i am still getting diff numbers with vulgarities and threats. Bt i just keep blocking it. How long will this last? Now everywhere i go i have a kitchen knife and pepper spray incase. And what will they keep doing next? The police had advice me with the necessary options to do if we see any suspicious acts. Bt as of now, is my case so severe? They didnít come that night though. Will this die off? And my neighbor usually closes their door late at night. What should i do more? It was my fault in not checking whether they are licensed or tailongs. Now that they are. They have been harassing my family and my friend . Appreciate the great advice from anyone here.


Please don't try to delude yourself into thinking that you can get away with a scratch. Be mentally prepared that there will be some form of verbal and physical harassment. Mostly calls, WhatsApp, SMS from unknown and no caller ID numbers to your phone, NOK and work place. Physical harassment, expect at the very least love letters being sent to your house. Whether or not it will escalate to locked gates, splashed paint and burning down the door - who knows? Even we also don't know.

But you have to be prepared for such things to happen, so let your family and work place know what is going on and what are the steps they can take to lessen the harassment. Go and read this whole thread twice through tonight to get a sense of what is the process of the harassment and the preventive measures.

Of cos stressed. If everyday you shout at your kids, your kids also scared ma. Thats the same lor, AL shouting and threatening at you. But all empty vessels one la. How often you see us debtors here in this forum kena paint splash and lock gate? Mostly love letters?

This one not Hong Kong drama, they won't come and find you personally one la. Want to come also will ask runner to splash paint or lock gate or do those indirect harassment. Save yourself the trouble, if you are caught at MRT or randomly screened in public with a weapon you could be charged with possession of a deadly weapon.

Normally those runner are debtor them self same like you.
They are forced to work for AL because no way to clear the debt.
Those debtor should straight away go to Police instead make use by AL.

Mentally draining actually...just by receiving non-stop calls/texts/threats. My phone was bombed last night and I went to NPP yesterday again coz was just too stressed. The officer saw all live threats "CONFIRM FIND U WAN", 'I MAKE SURE U DIE" "CONFIRM U DIE"

As expected, they didn't turn up last night, so i slept thru with my phones on silent, pulled out the home phone line (just in case), block all calls on my nok's mobile too. They called, texted all night. After all the threats, one of them asked this morning if today can do. LOL. Phone calls still ongoing. I'm reading all texts too. Not gonna let them get to me. Breathe.

Now, is the waiting game.
