To all the current and future victims who has been scammed by pretend to be LML Scammers, I have made a complaint and suggestion to POSB bank today to implement a security program to our customer saving account system to control this scammers from force depositing cash money into our bank account thru ATM. This program will deter Scammers from force sending cash money into our bank account thru ATM. Means to say, when the scammer try to force deposit cash money into our bank account thru that ATM, we the receiver will receive alert notice from the receiver whether to accept or reject the senders cash money from that ATM. I am actually from the safety industry and now I am in the security industry and I see the importance of security due to high terrorism and scammers. Please give me your feedback and we will sign a petition to MAS to implement this customer security program from scammers or any one trying to deposit force cash money into customer bank account thru ATM. Another warning to all victims or future victims here. Try not to use pay-now which is your phone number attached to your bank account. If they the scammers cant send force cash money into your bank account thru ATM, they will use Pay-now or Pay-Lar method to sent money into your bank account. I suggest the current victims or the future victims here to disable this Pay-Now and Pay-Lar account for the time being if you are still using existing phone number. I don't know about this Scammer pre-paid sim card whether it's able to do this pay-now & Pay-Lar transaction. However, we have to be on the guard.

pls warn your elderly friends, family members.

use "do not disturb mode" if needed, so private numbers cant get through and they wont have the chance to call back whoever called

Your plan will not work. As you know sometimes we will have a long queue to deposit money, if everyone stopped to wait for SMS confirmations, those behind no need to do deposit already.

Why not also captured the identity of people who do deposit? Outsiders must insert their own ATM card or NRIC to capture their Identity. This will not affect those who deposit to their own account as they can insert their own ATM card.

This is something new. I see it as they are running out of victims to do their dirty job. Which is a good sign that the spf is crippling their operations.

In any case, you dont have to worry since you did not take any loan. Impt, dont fear them and start xfer money to them.

Hi i need help.

I was looking to buy a video game through carousell and the seller asked me to come to his house. He asked me to take pictures of the door and also knock and take a video of it.
I STUPIDLY and uknowingly did it after asking why which he replied scared it was the wrong person he is dealing with. After sending the picture and video while waiting for him to open the door, he told me to buy paint and splash it on the door. He claimed he already has my name and my parents name (which was correct) & number and threatened to report me to the police for harassing people’s house unless i pay him $1k. He even claimed that i was already recorded on cctv and etc.

I have already blocked and reported him on whatsapp. He even used another number to continue threaten me and also “negotiate” by telling me illegal ways to get the money.

What should i do?
