Best part is I was so curious last night to find out what they will do after I send them the processing fee they demanded. Wanted 1280$ and I sent them 1000$. That above the 400+300 I was suppose to pay back on the pretext of the test loan.
They went to party...

I think it’s best to be discreet here in mentioning those LS names. Be it you are not paying them. Still your family’s safety is your top priority.

My wife also angry for being threatened. She did as I told to tell them we are not paying. Going police and blocked number.

Saw a missed call in my office mailbox. Planning to speak to HR head but think I’ll wait till Monday.

First time in my life I been threatened. But I tell myself I don’t owe these fellas nothing and I have nothing to hide either. Imagine if they really did transfer the 50k to me. I’d be done for life.

Yes it’s true end early and bite the bullet. Eventually it will go away. Kinda curious how the drama will unfold in the next few days.

The guy who I deal with is called xxx. He has a partner by the name xxx. Ready somewhere about Xxxx but now cannot locate. I suppose they have struck others in this post surely.

Thanks people for the posting.

Yes i agree DO NOT PAY THESE UML.

My family member stupidly signup and got into chaos with loan paid with high interest (usual story) in less than 1 mth but was kenna a force loan which indirectly affected myself.

Lucky stand firm even though first 2-3 days was like confused lost and scare but after reading all, i agree NO PAY THEM ESPICALLY THESE FORCE LOANS!!!! DUN GIVE IN TO FEAR.

UML dealing and handling them follow the protocol:
1) make police report
2) install cctv (can anyone recommend)
3) face it espically if you are innocent party, if debtor tear face value and humbly applogise and make sure change new leaf
4) change your mobile number close all accounts that is used for uml (DEBTOR)
5) NEVER GIVE UR ATM CARD / SINGPASS to UML
6) mentally prep that runners will come decor the door
7) mentally prep if u need to defend against the runners
8) DO NOT FEAR! THIS IS THE SAME AS WAR FEAR NOT THE ENEMY ESPICALLY WHEN WE ARE FIGHTING
thank all for the strong word of encouragement

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?
Totally Same Stuff, And they might come right on the next week after all these. Hit metal while hot.

Should make police report now
Install CCTV
close your bank account
Inform all NOK and working colleague that you have been scammed (they will try all those singpass contacts etc etc)
Change your phone number if you dont want to get harassed

Wait and see if they will come. More than likely they will invest abit for runners to come up once or twice.

*Edited to delete names
now be ready for the storm , "protect" your home with cctv. Tell your boss about scam ( your may not be forgiving ) tackle this issue bexause LS most likely will hantam (blast) your office. if you cant change phone number, ignore all unknown calls and smses. Reading them may give you nightmares .. for me I aint afraid. the bustards even called me a swindler because they cant press my balls for money

Search Engine Optimization. How do you change a bank account and will your pay then be transferred there? I'm changing jobs soon (unrelated to this).
For banks, just tell them you believe your acct has been compromised and usually they will just open a new one for you, no question asked.

As for salary, since you have already close your existing accoint, not possible for the crediting of the salary to go thru. you have to update your hr/finance the new account number for them to credit it. You might also check if your co has a monthly cut off date for any change of acct number

what i hear before is they can paste poster outside your condo. ask commando chiong in condo i think not easy to find. chances of getting catch very high for few hundred not worth it. now wanna find whack HDB already not easy too. catch rate too high. i will say they just wanna try to dig more money from you thats all.

They are for sure not going to get anything from me and I made it clear to him from the onset once the situation started to turn sour.

My message was clear. I donít have any more money to give and you will not see a single $ coming out of me. Then more threats and eventually gone silent.

I did not even once beg to leave me alone or ask not to contact me. Even told him that my Wife and family are made aware already so good luck in contacting them. Lastly told him the next time you make contact Iíll be reporting to police.
I donít live in a HDB so to some extent there is security. But they could tailgate and come to my unit nevertheless.
I live next door to a gentleman who works in CID division (not that he will be able to do anything or not) and he works nights so usually their door is always open and they have a fierce dog who will bark without fail and then trigger my own dog to bark. That might not be much but for now itís something.

In the meanwhile Iíll work out a CCTV installation.

While at NOC the officer was very deligent and took 1.5 hours to complete the report. In between he called a UML division (can’t remember the exact words they use) to confirm my type of case is the current trend for AL. NPC is just a block away too.

We were advices to continue to ignore calls and demands to pay. Funny part is that the last demand to pay up 2000$ delivered verbally and never through a message. So that part was not in the report. My case is that I have paid what I owed (which I didn’t borrow in the first place and payed 333%) and I am being harassed for more.

We decided not to change numbers. Both nok and myself are not that concerned with the calls and messages if any.

My bank account is also still active but I been monitoring for any suspicious transfers.

I'm surprised anyone will give their SingPass pw to a 3rd party

Think it's illegal to do that
