I did something really stupid.

Due to some opportunity to invest I needed some funds so after using up my savings I was still short of some 50k. Coincidentally I had received this message offering loan on watsapp. 50k for 60 months at 1000$ per month. Thinking I give it a try I contacted the number and soon it began.
The guy started chatting and patiently answering all my questions. And by night he had my Singpass login password to check my details. All done and changed the password immediately. Later I got a message saying loan approved, and asked for my account number. Gave it and was told they will send me a test loan which I need to pay in a feeble days. So they transfer 400 and return 700$. 300$ will be returned to ne later. Strange as it sounded I agreed. Shortly after I received the amount and confirmed back.

Today I then got a call saying I need to pay $1280 for processing fee. In total they will return it together with the loan amount. Was busy and didnít think much so I transferred. My fast transfer allow only 1k so I told the balance Iíll do it tomorrow. Thatís when I woke up and started googling out.

Eventually started reading this post and the horror stories. I instantly decided this had to end right away. Called the guy and told him I donít need the loan and. I also knew I would not get my 1k and so told he can keep it and I am done.

Then the nightmare started. He threatens me that I have to take the loan blah blah but I stood firm. In the end he agrees for me settle info I transfer the 700$ back and we are all square. That was at 11:13. And I had to transfer back by 11:15. Still 2 mins was good enough so I quickly stared my internet app just to realise I already exceeded my daily limit. So immediately called him
Back to say I need 20 mins to drive to posb and make a deposit. He aggresn but as soon as I got there, deposited and sent him the picture of the receipt the guys calls me and says I was late and now I need to pay 2000$.

There was lots of swearing and cursing from him and more messages with lots of threats and pictures. I stood firm saying he will not get a single cent from me. A few more calls later I blocked him. More messages appears from another number so blocked that too. That was the end of it.

All this happened an hour ago. Last threat was that they will send commando to my home and call my wife etc. I did not budge and then the 2000$ became 5000$.

The guy made a cool 1300$ from me for nothing. But after reading some
If the stores here I knew Iíd be trouble with a 50k loan over 5 years. I be doomed and soíd be my family.

Now I am just waiting for them to try again to scare me to bet that money they demanded.

I a hoping that they be happy with what they already made from me and donít bother any more especially since I did not yield to their threats.

I just hope they donít call my Wife and office tomorrow or even worse show up at my door.

It was big mistake but in the end I think I stepped back out of a larger life time mess.

Rest assured I will not be paying a single cent to them no matter what. But then l expect some anxiety for the next few days or weeks.

Would these guys try or be happy with what the already got from me?

They have already made a profit. This profit will go into paint jobs or commando jobs they hire.

As such I would really urge you to report the matter to authorities first. Using this report, you can thereafter explain the situation better to everyone that is going to be effected, when they strike. Even if they don't, at the very least you know you will not be implicated in anyway possible in future.

Thanks for the messages and advices.

May I ask what it means ďI am classified as a good legĒ please.

Since blocking both numbers I have not received any more calls or messages. There was not a due date stated either.
I intend to play the waiting game to begin with.

My primary concern is whether if they will turn up at my door and post any posters etc.
Next my Wife, but I can always explain if they contact her.
Lastly my office. We donít have physical phones since we use Skype so I could always ignore the calls. I usually know the number that call in. Unless they get smarter and call the reception asking for me. If that happens then Iíll speak to HR to indicate I been scammed. I donít think there is much to do after that.

Speak of scams, by now I gather the below,
There is never any intention to disburse the original loan requested.
Their MO is to get the unsuspecting individual into this vicious cycle of paying more and more on the pretext of late payments.
Once they know you are fearful of them they will go on forever.
However, if once they realise there is no way of getting money out of you and as Long as you donít owe them nothing their intensity will gradually diminish.
This is not money lending albeit for high interest rates. This is a clearly a form of extortion using the dirtiest of scare tactics.

Meaning you are potential money tree for the Loansharks. Once they shake you and money will drop.

Pls stop paying them. If not you will become botak tree. Do read from the start of this thread.

In another words good leg means big fish, cos u paid whenever they ask you.... so yes stop paying....they have a lot of numbers....if you consistently get unknown caller ID/unknown number, you may consider to change your number..... depends on ur AL, they itchy will come already....I still insist you should let ur NOK/office know first in case of anything...for mine....my AL emailed company and called reception hotline also....

And go and make a police report...

Hi, so my amount is relatively small, i borrowed from a man who claimed to be licensed, he had certs and license numbers and even had supposed backing from a licensed moneylender company. After a few weeks it was apparent he wasn't legit.

i only borrowed 200 and have more or less paid back everything via deferments. Upon reading the advice of everyone here I went to make a police report and changed my singpass ID and stuff.

What else can I do?
