Hi guys.

Believed I was scammed into this uml...

Saw a phone instalment plan. Enquired. Then he ask for nric and cpf contribution. Said 2000 12 mth settle. He asked for bank account number and he did a video call to verify face..

Next 300 was in my account then he Mia on me for few day. WhatsApp reply doesn't explain and delay and delay.

Today told me 300 is trial loan need give back 500 on 23th before 7pm. I ask him for bank account he say on that day 1pm will give cuz always different bank account number. I tell him don't later u Mia then become late charge he say won't and said he want his money back. Planning to just give him 500 and block afterwards. Should I report police now?

I have already closed my bank account once i know he is an LS. Did they harrass you or anything?

I have also sent the police on all the account numbers that I was asked to transfer to.

Would like to highlight a few things

1) lml is not allowed to advertise.
2) all the monthly installment plans are tricks for ppl to reply to their advertisement. Uml and lml will never give this kind of loans.
3) no legal loan company will ask for your singpass, ic or bank account over the phone. Even at lml office, they will ask you to key in the password for your singpass. They wont ask for it.
4) all lml will need you to go down to their office to sign documents before they can approve your loan or disperse the money.

If you see them do any of the above, 99% they are loansharks.

You are very right. Thanks your advice.

THEY WILL NEVER GIVE THIS KIND OF LOAN ( proper monthly payment loan) via sms. GOT TO VISIT THEIR OFFICE FOR PROPER LOAN APPLICATION.

No not Query from them before. Just an irritating random call.
I got an account with LM, but still not sure how they get hold with my informations.

Ic, number and address they have. But no bank account number i guess? possible that the lm pass the info to them. Anyway stand firm and ignore the ls. If you did not take money from them, unlikely they will spend time or money to harrass you. And from their action now, you will know they will let you go after you take loan from them

Yea i think they dont have my account number which they keep asking me for it. What i worry is they just transfer the cash to my account and said that i have borrowed the money and they can just come after for it. But anyway, i went to file a police report already, dont know if that helps.

Dont give them your account or read their msg at all. As for making police report, that is the correct procedure.

Yes, they can actually do what you just mentioned. Don't release any personal details at all!
