Also, they also ask for phone no. only, nv ask for address.. I think he knows I won't return any money if he force transfer also.. So he going to ignore me..
Please read back at least 10 pages for your understanding. They confirmed will not ignore you, nok and your colleagues.

Good to be optimistic. Please read back few more pages of the thread if you got time. You are surprised how connected they are and manage to dig all the colleagues and neighbours number.

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."

With regards to loan scam, all is quiet.

With regards to the loans scam situation in Singapore, my heart pain to see so many new victims. Law enforcement and preventive measures need to triple step up.

You problem is over.

Pre-emptive action is needed .may have an idea.
What we have here are cases that require damage control.
