Hi all

My 5 days of quietness is over. The LS started to message me and asking for transfer some more money. As I have paid already him double of the amount. I don’t want to pay anymore. I did had the courage to tell my Wife. She get angry but it was my mistake. Now he threaten to burn my house.

I already made a report to the police initially. As they said they can make a statement once they threaten me. As there was no bad threat initially. He message me and said that he will burn the house.

Should I just block the number or just let it and ignore?

Thank you.
Report this msg to the police. SPF takes these threats very seriously.

Then block the number or vice versa. But make sure when you block that number, do not delete the msg cos you need to report it to the police. Or you do a screen shot first then block.

Just in case the whole msg is deleted after blocking.

Bro..My advice to you is to change your mobile number. I used to be badly affected by all this msges as well. Changing number will at least let u have some peace metally. What i did last time was to explain the my neighbour what i had went through n seek for their understanding and let them had some preparation. Install a cctv at a visbible location to all to deter them for at least setting fire as getting caught is no joke.
U really must convince yourself that what is the worst can happen. Call the police regarding this threat.They will at least increase patrol in your area.

One more caught, sad a young man. This is Singapore, got so many CCTV. Cannot run one. SPF took 1 day to find.

For those thinking can get away being LS runner, see the statistic. Every few days sure have arrests.

Man Arrested for Loanshark Harassment


The Police have arrested an 18-year-old man for suspected involvement in loansharking activities.

On 22 March 2019, the Police received a report that loanshark-related graffiti were found scrawled on the wall outside a residential unit at Toa Payoh Lorong 1. Through extensive ground enquiries, officers from Tanglin Police Division established the identity of the man and arrested him on 23 March 2019. Preliminary investigations revealed that the man is believed to be involved in several other cases of loanshark harassment islandwide.

The man will be charged in court on 25 March 2019 under the Moneylenders Act 2010 (Revised Edition).

Under the Moneylenders Act (Revised Edition 2010), first time offenders found guilty of loanshark harassment shall be punished with imprisonment for a term not exceeding 5 years and shall also be liable to a fine of not less than $5,000 and not more than $50,000 with mandatory caning of not less than 3 and not more than 6 strokes.

The Police have zero tolerance for loanshark harassment activities. Those who deliberately vandalise properties, cause annoyance and disruptions to public safety, peace and security, will be dealt with severely in accordance with the law.

Members of the public are advised to stay away from loansharks and not work with or assist the loansharks in any way. The public can call the Police at Ď999í or the X-Ah Long hotline at 1800-924-5664 if they suspect or know of anyone who could be involved in loansharking activities.

Adam0210, close and open bank account in case other victim report your account. Normally LS will give acct of another victim so they can bankroll money without being identified.

So since you paid b4, u are considered "working" for them and your acct could be frozen. Faster change acct.

If u realised and decide not to pay anymore, u shld have prepared urself for harassment.

Shld already block their numbers, they only have a certain amount of numbers to use.

While CCTV is important, I guess many of us are financially not stable and CCTV can stretch the wallet but if you have budget, best to install. Or rather wait for free SPF one. PM if interested to install your own.

Thanks your advice to all.
When you are too deep into debt, size up the problem and do the necessary.

Money problem isnt a matter of life and death problem. We can still live and live on.

What i did was I bring my police report to my TC the same day I install CCTV. TC approval letter will take a week to receive by then something might already happened.

So install first then apply TC approval. TC a bit slow to such request.No need tell TC about you already install cctv.

As with Police report, you could do it online since UML activities is consider not an emergency or life threatening case even if it's a death threat by msg.

Go bank and do parallel transfer, open new account and close the other. The more reason to do it since got hack. My worry is your account get frozen, then you don't have funds for daily expenses.

I had check pith SPF. They mentioned that thereís no problem of puttin a CCTV in your own without the TC approval. As Long as it dontbtake video of your neighbour house. As for flat. Itís in the corner. And thereís no house beside it. Except for a staircase. So I can put the Camera facing that side.

The only thing police mentioned is to be alert and inform my neighbours. Thatís all. He havenít message me back since yesterday.

I wonder how can we trap this LSís. I think itís time for them to pay their crimes and not just the runners. As the runners suffer. They have their faults as well coz they donít have any choice. Coz they canít pay. And much more worst is the threats that they get from them. Itís just a pity to see teenagers doing Runner coz of their mistakes.

If thereís like a device can trace the phone when they call you. It will be very useful in this kind of predicament. And we can able to Cathcart these people even I they are in or out of Singapore.

Thanks for the reply. Iím just waiting for few more days then I can change my bank account number.
