How can selling an item become a loan ?
Look like a scam to me.
Go and make a police report.
Talk to the police officer about it.

Very likely itís a loan scammer, cos usually you canít get thru their number with normal calls except Whatsapp calls.

Ignore them and make police report straight away. Block their numbers too.

And importantly, inform your family members

Have you made police report? If not, please do it now.

This is something new here, in terms of tactics. Am I right to say that you had transferred back the money (no more and no less than) what they had transferred back to you?

Do let your family members know that you had been scammed and they are in the loop and know how to react ďifĒ they were to really visit you. I know you are feeling lost now but the police will be able to guide you along.

Our police treat these type of cases seriously and do keep your correspondences (SMS/Whatsapp) and show the police.

Are you Singaporean and staying in Singapore ?
If yes, then no worry.
Faster go and make police report.
Those are scammer.
They can't do anything to harm you.
They only can manipulate those naive or low IQ people only.
I believed you are not naive or low IQ people.
So no worry about them.
Trust the Singapore Police 100% and follow their instructions after you had made the police report.

Why are you transfer back amount more than they transfer to you ?
It will never end.
Stop talking to them immediately.
You are like the duck below to them.
Yes, follow the Police instructions.

So what did the police advise you to do?

If you scared they come, install CCTV. This will sort of deter the runners to do anything. Your common corridor got police CCTV?

My block , there Is CCTV on the ground floor and also in the lift but still worry that they will came and find trouble.
I have read thought the past six months text from here and I cannot find and similar case of my and the second reason I post here is to wish that other who are sell thing online to beware of this . The police said the loan shark will try all sort of way to get you personal details and bank account and this is not the first case from my area
