Same here. I blocked their numbers. They used another number to send me all the harassment of splash paints and burning houses. Threaten to make my life miserable. I reported to police and thought it was purely a scam and that's it. Never knew that after paying all the $$$ with no loan disbursed and ended up being threatened.

Did they really call your family or company? Or go and harass you at your work place? I just wanted an end to this and move on as a lesson learnt not to be fooled by scam. Now the after effect was even worst. Got threat all over.

They even able to identify your neighbours. This group of crooks got good connection.
They call my home and workplace. No one come to my house or workplace. One of my current LS also send me a list of my neighbours, but nothing happened. Just ignore them and show no fear. They feed on our fear hence be firm and work against them.
Where as for the harassment is something all of us has to face and endure. Read the rest of the thread and take the necessary precautions.
Goodluck!

Thank you Makminah. Without owing any money to LS but still got harassed was really unbelievable. Got scam already bad enough. Now got threatened to pay them more. As you said have to be firmed. Endless worry.

Another word postponed your due date of the total loan to a week later but some LS offer 3 days loan.
Eg. U take 600 they give u cashback 400
So 5days or 7days later u either clear 600 or pay deferment fee to postpone to another week. But this deferment fee doesnt reduce your principal amt u borrowed

But how come LS can force the deferment fee on the victim when the victim can repay the loan?

They purposely want to earn more.

Exactly that's how they work. From one victim to another. If they don't give you account, sometimes its because they also can't find accounts to transfer to cause no victim. Once account has been tagged as suspicious for money laundering, it is dead to them.

One of their main tactic is pressuring you to make the transfer asap if not this penalty or that action will fall on you.

DO NOT FALL for it. Once your account has been tagged that you have passed money to a criminal account, you could be BARRED from having an account for the REST OF YOUR LIFE.

Wake up Brothers and Sisters. Do not be afraid. We will bring down these evil scammers. Who keen to help? PM me. Who is Clueless? PM me.
I can help

Wow. I get the exact words and reply like you said here. Are they loan shark scammer? Anw I paid the first deferment fee, and tdy is supposed to be my due date, they still ask for deferment fee. I didn't transfer them anymore. Not sure what they'll do, but I think transferring them more won't solve the problem also.

I just got into a loan scam. Was told to make upfront payment but no loan disbursed. I stopped and blocked them but they kept harassing me with threats. Anyone got the same encounters. Now they said I have unsettled loans. I just wondered how I ended up with unsettled loans when I did not get anything out of it. Now they threaten me.
You had transferred money to them for their whatever admin, processing and blah blah blah fees before they can disperse the “loan” to you?

Was it a lot?

When was it and now they still haunting you?

Hi David. I ever encounter before. Wanted to take a loan but was told to pay upfront and this and that. I paid, thinking i will get my $$. I told them I will make a police report cause after paying no $$ was transferred. The next day his 'boss' called me demanding an apology fee of $2k for threatening him and his company cause I wanted to make a report. I went on to make a police report and my hp was bombarded with images of burning house and all others that comes with it. They called my house and harrass my mother, they called my workplace and harrass them. They say they want to make my life miserable but nothing happened. I do not owe them anything, I didnt get anything from them infact I was the one paying them. It has been more than a month since this happened. They seems legitimate, very professional,good command of english, even has their own website. And because I found them on google didnt think much of digging more on the company. If only I found this thread afew months ago, i will not be in this mess right now.

Make a police report, based on what I experienced, they wont do anything cause you dont owe them anything. Just be firm and dont give in.
What they say to your NOK and office and for how long?

Initially they asked for first payment. Claimed loan will be disbursed after payment made with 30 mins. Then came back to say need insurance fee. Already made a sum for first payment. So paid. Stupid me. Then came back to say need processing fee. Made payment. More stupid. No money received. Then claimed the acct did not tally. Need more money. Told them no more money they even advised to borrow from friends.

Realised being scammed. So decided to close this chapter. Paid almost 1k. But they claimed acct outstanding and needed me to follow up. Harassed me Today. My encounter with them was yesterday.

Today Sent me a photo of my ic with o$p$ which I did not owe any money to them. They even have my neighbour names and showed a pic of WhatsApp message to his runner to print 300 A4 pages to distribute tonight. I blocked all their numbers and reported to police already. Police told me loan scam.

U encountered similar case?

Quite similar but terminology is different.

Did u tell them that you don’t want to loan anymore? If yes, should have some stupid penalty fees.

Yes, I agree with you, STUPID is the word for us to even contact them.

So what did the police advise you to do? Did you give them your account and if yes, did you close this account?

Inform your nok and workplace after report police. Have a cctv for additional protection( scam case not really needed)

Remember inform your nok to IGNORE their threats. DONT READ THEIR SMSES

I told them I don't want the loan anymore and return what I have paid. Of course I was dreaming. They will not return.

They told me my loan still in processing state must follow up. And they claimed they sent my details to the debt recovery for follow up and I received all the harassing messages. Comes with pictures and neighbour details.

Police advise block all messages. Monitor your account no unknown money comes in. Report immediately if so.

Can elaborate on your case?
