Im afraid that they have all my info. So should i pay or should i return the 300 if the person message me today? Closing bank acct also very troublesome. But i will close it already.

Im trying to gather strength to get through this again. Its been tough last 2 years ago. Then this again.
Just tell them upfront, they have either option. Take the 300 back and go or come retrieve it from the police themselves. Thereafter, cut all forms of communication.

Fully agree.

It’s feels strange and difficult to understand where all the sanity was hiding when I needed it most. Not it’s all rather easy for me analyse and think what I should or should not have done. But the cat is already out, damage is done.

On a positive note I will definitely take this experience as one of the best ever. An experience which I could do without.

I am now receiving very polite calls from numbers with country codes +7 (Russia) and +91 (India) asking if I need loans. Funny part is that if you look at the last 8 digits of these numbers they appear to be Singapore numbers with either 8 or 9.

Wondering if these guys first try and scam you to squeeze when they can and later try and do telemarket you a loan either a real loan or get you to think it’s real and prep you up for another scam.

They have a decent investment in all of this and so it’s highly organised mostly in Malaysia I believe.

This should be featuring on scam city show on discovery channel for sure.



your fault, or rather mistake, is when you initiated the contact with them...

it's like opening your doors to these AL/scammers/watever, and they come into your house and never want to leave again

For all you know, this have been ongoing since years back. And it has grown bigger until they could even advertise via facebook, tumblr and other social media platform.

Because, it's good money. And low risk considered the jurisdiction difference.

The close proximity of our lawless neighbours who probably be thinkijg Singaporean’s are pretty gullible especially when it comes to money.

Am sure there are genuine Ah Long out there supporting small scale businesses without resorting to scams.

This ugly scam is a creative but ugly byproduct of the entire illegal ML business.

But surprisingly the local government has little to
offer in terms of protection nor is there any promise.

Well i do hope they can find a way to catch the real bosses. And not only the runners or workers.

LML came to office again last week, this is the second time they came. But now I don't have any single cent to pay them. Waiting for year end bonus, to gather the 2.5k needed for self declare bankruptcy. But still have 2 months need to wait, how to drag the LML until then? Boss already warned that if they keep coming to disturb the office, my job will be gone!

Personal advise

Govt cant do much. U can call ministry of ml to complain that they r jepordizing ur job. Lml will step back too.

Let the lml knw u r contactable n in the midst of filing for drs.

They hate it n some will try to get funds back frm u because gg thru drs, they can only take back what u owe n over 5 yrs.

Dl call recordings so that u can have proof of their tone n stuff.

Have you tried talking to the lml? See if they can arrange for installment payment? Btw, are they aware of your plans to file for bankruptcy?
