Bro. They got plenty of numbers to burn .
Also whats good if we consol the numbers ? The people here are a small percentage of whats happening outside this forum . Data collection of ls numbers should be best left to spf .
We all here are in defence mode and damage control situation.

Good morning bro JLeague. Thought you had a long cny. I have an idea on preventive measure. It will require man hours alamak also woman hours to diseminate information via phone app ie using whatsapp which is almost free.
If you think positively about this idea , maybe we can meet at the police station ( clear ourselves).
I am sure many here knew IO orinspector and ask .

As I have said , this is volunteer work.
Its so sickening to see family and career wrecked under loan scam situation. Past posts by other bros revealed that police will only take action when scene of crime take place. Spf cant do much about phone harrassment. They will tell you to stop comm and ignore.

Quick update.

I/O at SPF reiterate not to contact the UML.

Also was advised to bring Police Report to town council for approval if I decide to install cctv myself at my property.

The message here is break all contact with these LS.

Hi there, Iíve been a victim for 8 months now.

Iíve finally got the courage to block them today.
I do not know what Iíll be facing but Iíll update again for those who are still facing this circumstances.

They will continually ask you to pay, have ďaccidental transfersĒ and the latest one I got is, the person you always talk to is on leave. I am just here to ask you to pay.

Iíve made a police report but itís of no use.
Iíve taken the first step, to change your bank account.
To stop them from transferring you again.

Iíve taken the first step but Iím honestly still afraid.
Itís about the embarrassment we got to go through and all hopefully will be ok.

Thanks for all the advice here, itís better than what police have said.
And I know Iím not alone in this.

Hello all! First of all thank you to those you shares their experiences and kind advices.For me it all started yesterday.I enquired about loan in FB.the process and how the repayment like.
My intention was to help my husband.Somehow i was so stupid when he ask for my IC details,bank details.I gave them when they say they need it to check their system whether im eligible or not.Very stupid of me i even tell them where i work.Now im scared.

I did ask too if he is from a Licensed company in the convo and he mentioned yes.even provide me company name
Hours later he whatsapp me and and tell me that $300 is transferred to my account.I replied and say No i didnt make any confirmation i didnt say yes and why you transfer me $300? He said it was a trial loan from his company.I called back the number he provide.Told him I dont want the money,give me the payment details and i will transfer back ASAP.He told me he will give the details only next week for payment.
I told him again and again i dont want to wait longer but he didnt listen.
This is some of what he told me:
*When u rec my acc u must ack first then bank in. If u did not ack my acc n bank in, what amt u pay also not counted. Take note
*cut off time 5pm.


I know i have to let my husband know.Im staying with my two young kids..my blind mom and husband.i am truly sorry i have to drag them into all these.so lastnight i made a police report.called up the bank to freeze my card.just now went to bank to have the amount transfer back to the account but cant.i went to Sim Lim to get a CCTV installed too.The moneylender whatsapp me two receipt of ATM and by internet banking.

I then called up my IO.she advised me to just wait for their call.when they call they sure ask for more money.Dont pay more or less.just pay what they transfer and ignore anything from them .
Tomorrow i want to terminate my number.But i am worried sick after i read some exp saying that they will splash paint..go to workplace..lock the gate.I just have to blame myself now.Havent been able to eat since yesterday.no appetite even for a sip of water.I am now wondering what will happen next

Your bank unable to return the money?

My situation is not a lot better than yours. At least you have installed a CCTV. For you and your family sake you eat and drink to have the physical and mental strength to stay strong. I too have to force myself to replenish myself and even force myself to sleep. We have to.

For myself, I'm the head of the family like your husband and sole bread winner and this adds up for me a lot. I can say, stay strong but I know it's easier said than done.

Hello sister. Don’t worry they will never go to your work place. But in fact the most they will keep harass your office as you provided them details of. Yes you did the right thing by closing account & for the money wise, doesn’t able to trf back, so just keep the money. Install CCTV asap before the harassment starts. And do not open the door if there’s unknown people whom are knocking the door as they might be runner whom sent by LS to take pic of to send and threaten you more from there. You’re not alone, we’ll try to help you as much from now. Please do eat and drink as life continues, and you need to be strong to face this. Cheers!

Don’t have to terminate, just block them will do. As for your office no just be frank with them that you’ve been scammed.

Illegal Moneylenders

Have anyone heard or have experience with STR Credit ? They claim their office at Boon Lay and even address but that address belong to Money Max.

I just googled there’s no STR credit. Most probably that’s a loanshark company. If there’s anything in doubt of, always Google.
