3 weeks back, a guy called me to offer me a loan. borrow 1k take 1k, pay 1.2k ($400/month) and i agreed because i was very broke and lost my job. eventually i only received $400, pay $650 or $200 deferment and pay full must inform one day in advance between 12pm-12.10pm. okay next week due and i transfer $650 as mentioned, so far so good.

started calling me late last week and this week and ask me support him, ask me take loan. told him i don't need money and he start pestering me asking me to support him. he called me in the evening just now again ask me to loan, i picked up the phone only because it's a unknown number (private number) imo, heard his voice and i mute the call as in i act like no reception. the next thing i know i receive $790 in my bank account, 1st transaction is $600 via ibanking and 2nd transaction is $190 from cash deposit machine.

i know very obvious i have been scammed so i need help here. i read this thread, should block them change number close account report police...

which one should i do first? report police or close bank account first? i did call the npc hotline to enquire just now, doesn't sound very helpful to me and i heard a smirk from the police.

please help me bros and sis.
U also cartoon....act no reception... Haha....go lodge a police report first....remember take screenshot of all transactions, call log and messages (personally I export them)...

Just don't pay them. Now I waiting for the runner to come up my house. If he transfer you the money then you just take it. Take them as Santa Claus. If you going to pay them then there is no ending. What you can do now is block their number.
Hi bro, tbh i have no plans to pay them. as in im willing to transfer the amount back as it is but but willing to fork out more from my pocket. I haven't block those yet because I'm going to make a report first thing in the morning.

just now i say i call the npc right, the officer ask me don't use the money. i called the bank before the police, they ask me to keep the money? i speechless...

Bro. No point transfer back the amount to them. They will still harrass you. Because what they want is you to pay back them more. What I can suggest is if you think you should not take the money they transfer you then you should take the money and donate it. Help ah long to do some charity.

Haha....u won't know when they coming up......so be prepared as Long got cctv leave it to spf....
Police can only help after our house been splash paint. By then I think there is no point catching the runner anymore. The only way we can prevent paint splash is we caught the runner before they can do anything. I know we won't know when they will come but we should try just for one day. We can only gamble luck on our side or ah long side.

They trying their luck, you should tell the AL say that u don't have money and don't want the loan, if don't want to give u account to trf him back then say nvm ask him go police station own self collect.... I recommend u to close ur bank tmrw and withdraw out all the money first, if you bank account still exist, they might they others u are a good fish etc and later many unknown money will be trf to ur account...u can not let them see that u fear and u paid them back with interest if not they will know u easy prey...don't be too detailed here....after all this is a public space...

Haha tbh honest I'm prepared if they come....nowadays I light sleeper any sound I hear I wake up....check camera got any suspicious want go out whack already....

Well at least police would still be able to find the runner....the more runner they catch the hard those AL can continue with their harassment and threats...

Maybe we (Run Ah Long Money Specialist) can arrange one day we all stay awake for whole night to wait for ah long runner to come up. And hopefully we can caught a few ah long runner and bring down the ah long morale.
Let the cctv do it's job. While we can all sit down have a kopi downstairs our houses and relax. Why stay up late for them? Even when they come, you are not to inflict any harm towards their runner but report police. Else it will be considered as criminal offense if you go harm those runners.

Go report police, change number, close bank account and show the police reports to everyone you gave their contacts to the AL, even your company. Use the money install cctv and enjoy a good meal with your family

Likely they need an account to recv the money so force transfer to you. 2 debtors so your amount comes in two transaction. So report police and tell them what happen. Next is close your bank account
