We all make mistakes, if you choose to let it ruin your life, your life is already ruined. Be strong, pick up from here, the incident will mostly certainly die down eventually since you have taken the best steps to cut them off. Life will go on, don't let this incident decide your life.

Agree with you don't let this incident decide his life.
Got one problem coming and he has to face it.
As all we know that those Ah Long are based in Malaysia, I don't think they behave so timid like in Singapore when back in their home ground.
If his work permit cut and send back to Malaysia, not easy to cut them off in Malaysia.

Hi, if I sent my details but didn't take up any loan due to the suspicious term of borrowing 500 and returning 800 for review.
They threaten me with a cancellation fee.. I know I Wil just ignore it. But will they harass those numbers that I given out? And ask me to pay cancellation fee?

Faster make police report if they force you to pay up.

It just happened. I told them I will not be taking any loan because the repayment is illogical.
I hope they stop here and don't transfer any money into my account.

UNLICENSED MONEYLENDING HARASSMENT

The total number of cases related to unlicensed moneylending (UML) increased by 21.1 per cent to 4,619 cases in 2018, up from 3,814 cases the year before.

Harassment cases by electronic means increased by 33.5 per cent to 3,719 cases last year, compared to 2,785 in 2017. These accounted for the majority of UML-related harassment cases in 2018.

Harassment cases involving damage to property decreased by 12.5 per cent to 900 cases in 2018, down from 1,029 cases in 2017.

"The police's enforcement efforts to disrupt UML syndicate operations, strong partnership with the community and the introduction of additional police cameras in neighbourhoods forced UML harassers to shift to non-damage and non-confrontational tactics, such as placing harassment notes in letterboxes," said the police.

More victims are being harassed via SMS and social media platforms due to the increase in new communication platforms and smartphones. This makes it easier for UML harassers to target larger groups of people, police said.

There has also been a rise in cases involving foreign workers borrowing money from unlicensed moneylenders.

"The police have engaged maid employment agencies and businesses to educate foreign workers against borrowing from loansharks and to warn them of the severe consequences of getting involved in UML activities," police said.

PHISHING

Cases under the Computer Misuse Act include unauthorised access or transaction of an individual's online accounts, unauthorised purchases using credit or debit cards, and phishing emails that obtained sensitive personal information such as passwords and credit card details.

In 2018, there was a 40.3 per cent increase in such cases, from 858 cases in 2017 to 1,204 cases last year.

"The police would like to remind members of the public to safeguard their personal particulars and online credentials and to be wary of phishing emails or websites," the statement read.

"Credit and debit card holders are advised to opt for SMS one-time password (OTP) verification for charges to their cards, as well as a notification for any charges incurred."

Siao Liao.... They will bank in and consider as forced loan. Once you received the money, faster make police report. That one is scam, don't give in.
