Stay strong! I have been watching your story unfold. The terror is only virtual.

If they dare to show up at your door, be ready with CCTV and call police. More evidence, clear evidence means the runner can be caught in no time. Don't miss the opportunity to help clean up the loan scam terror network.

Side note: Some runners are also victims so getting them caught is a GOOD thing, else they are going accumulate charge after charge of offence of which the penalties are extremely heavy. Very sad.
Thank you for your kind words. Yes I have the exact sentiments. So far mine they only threaten via msgs no actions yet. I hope it stays that way. At least we know that no one is willing to work for them to get themself into deeper trouble.

Their msgs also getting lesser. They will only text me once or twice on my due day asking for payment. Thats it. Unlike when I am still paying them, they will msg and call non stop till I reply.
I did not install cctv though, I know will be better to have one but with my family condition I dont think we can afford one.
So I am just praying for the best and relying on the police CCTV located and the void deck and in the lifts. There are 3-4 camera in the void deck and lift landing itself.
Those who just take a step forward to stop paying them, stay strong guys. Know that you're not alone going through all this. Alot of survivors here in this thread. They have told us their story and now they are leading a more peaceful life. Dont be afraid to stand firm and f*ck them off if they ask for money. If you dont dare to f*ck them up scaring that might trigger them then block all their numbers. If not just ignore all their calls and msgs like me. Trust me you will feel a whole lot better not paying them up especially if you've already paid them more than what they 'loan' you.
Cant emphasized this enough
1. Report to the police
2. Block/ignore all forms of communications with them
3. Change number (if that makes you feel better)
4. Close your bank account (if you feel its neccessary)
5. Install CCTV (This will actually deter those runners from doing anything. Even if they did, can catch them faster)
6. Come clean to your NOK and workplace. (Dont have to tell them you took loan or anything. Just tell them you lost IC and got scammed)
7. Talk to someone close to release all the burdens and stress you are feeling. (This step help me out personally.)

You need all the emotional and moral support. Keeping it to yourself will eat you up inside. For now just stay vigilant and stay safe everyone. Pray that god will ease all your pain and proctect everyone here and you love ones.

2019 is coming. Start the new year with a positive note. It's not going to be easy at first but once you're able to mentally not let those LS get to you with their threats, you won half the war already. So keep on fighting!

Yes I did give my bank account number to them.

They transfered a trial loan to me and ask me to settle a bigger amount in 5 days which I did to their account given on 5th day.

Then they keep asking for more fees and stuffs to release my loan. Which I stupidly did as well hoping to get the loan but in the end, nothing but asking for more fees.

I gave up and told them to cancel my loan .

Yours is more like a scam than a loan from loan shark . Trial loan , test repayment by giving you small sum is scam. Can be destructive.

Inform your workplace and nok. They are likely target. Just dont ignore their smses ,break contac is best defence.
Cctv is important
