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

.QUOTE=Davidfool;118478096]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?
[/QUOTE]
Thank you fearless. Never expected to be threatened to live in fear. And the scam approved the loan without a lot of details. How stupid am I to be fooled. I just wonder what they will do to me. They sent WhatsApp with beautiful picture of house being splashed paints and my ic with the word O$P$.

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.

Can elaborate on your case?
My current state is I told them to cancel my loan and they imposed a penalty fee. Which I said ok cos the penalty fee is less than half of what I had transferred them.

Now see what they come up with on the agreed date of refund. I know I will never get back my $ but it’s the words they twist (prata) is out of this world and if they even have the cheek to contact me.

I am sure they will ask you for more money claiming issues with closing the account. You ignore them they continue to harass you. Then they will refer you to the debt collection dept just like mine. They are very professional scammers. I would like to PM u but I have not reached 10 posts yet.

Like what others had advised, report police (which you did) and those that you had given contacts to them.

Let them be prepared first. I know itís not easy and itís will make us feel ashamed to inform them but trust me, it feels a lot better when you had informed them or prepared them prior to these scammers contacting them.

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.
Ya they want more money even if u want to close. What i did was tell them i dont want to defer i want to close if they say cannot den ask them f.o

What they say to your NOK and office and for how long?
They demand the $2k apology fee. They throw all sorts of vulgarities to my mum and workplace. Even say want to come burn down my workplace to my superior. It went on for about 2 days only for this case. So its already been more than a month since they last contact me and thank god nothing happened. They still dare to ask me for $$. When they are the ones who owe me $$. To think of it, I should have send them the O$P$ last time. 😂

Thank you. I hope yours will end soon too. Based on mine, they just threatened on the phone nothing more. I dont think they will do anything since you dont owe them anything.
Good luck!
