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

Think it's illegal to do that
If apply license money lenders need to give singpass.

No....licensed money lenders are not suppose to ask for ur Singpass either....licensed money lenders u need go down to their shop, face to face, key in ur Singpass when they are asked u to.... not allowed to reveal it to them....

Looks like most of the victims here.. please help spread awareness. 🙏
Like wat my io explain, many al will say they wont get caught. Police cant do anything.

Truth is, police can. In fact, if more lenders reports police n stops payment, their biz will be disturbed.

They r just gambling, in hopes to get back profits by putting in few hundreds as stake bet.

Dont get threatened.

It has been 2 weeks for me. He came up once, msgs n msgs. Just endure n ignore.

The real Ah Long will be hiding and won't get caught.
Only the runner is the one caught in the newspaper.

Hi i have a problem with this loan sharks. One day someone just banked in a mysterious money to my acct. Then after few days messaged me saying I needed to oay the loan or defer. Me being scared as ive heard alot of about loansharks, i paid the amt. He banked in 300 clear 450. So i paid 450..

2 days after (i didnt know.. only today i checked) another 300 was banked in. Without me knowing. I dont know who banked in.. he will probably message me tomorrow.

What should i do with the money. Im afraid they have my info and all as well. As they are all linked together. I had a case last 2 years. But only this year they started again.

Shoukd i change number and close the bank acct where thwy banked in the money?

And what happens if for example i already closed my acct. Then an idiot tried to bank in using cash deposit on that acct.. what will happen to the money?

First of all u didnít loan...now they trf u $300 ask u return $450 is assuming u take the loan...if u scared the sequence will keep on going...u have to put a stop to it.... u can first of all, ask him to give u account u trf the $300 back and close ur account immediately and also change ur number....once ur account is close they wonít be able to make any trf... what I see now the amount may be other debtor transfer to u... u might get implicated... pls do head down to the police station and make a report ASAP.... keep everything as evidence... inform ur NOK etc to prevent they harass for more money..

If u didnít loan u donít have to be scared....u didnít do anything wrong... these are all their tactics to scam money...

Let’s just hope or assume for now they only have your bank account in which case they can do nothing to you. Any chance someone has revealed or might have used your identity to loan before?

If none then make a police report immediately.
Make sure you are firm to tell them you are not paying any money for interest, late charges or whatever. If you give them the impression you are willing to anything to clear you will end up in trouble. But don’t give in. It’s scary as hell but it’s not difficult. Get some support from family and friends to gather some strength.

They have your acct and hp number means your info already leaked out. As mentioned, close acct immediately and make police report. Once your acct is closed, they will not be able to do xfer or deposit even with cdm. Change your hp as well. Likely they will scam you even when you close acct.

No disrespect and you only mean well with your experience. But taking a drastic step to change numbers right away and closing accounts makes these *******s be in control of our lives one way or another. It’s just so damn disgusting that one has to change numbers for no fault of theirs. It’s not always easy to change a phone number that you been using for several years.

Well once if AL comes with proof of knowing your home or work address and stuff then perhaps yes. I would wait and watch while closing bank account along with police report as the first few measures.
