Hi guys,

I just wanna share my story here. I have been dealing with UML since January tis year till now. I have donated around 2k to them and recently i got a force loan from them which i didnt agree with it. So i make a report and hand over the money to the police to handle it. I have been recieve msg from them to burn , lovk spray paint on my unit. But i have cctv outside my house and i welcome them. Its a scam guys. No need to be afraid of them. They can only scare u in whatapps or calls. Just be strong & ignore them. Dont ever let them feel u are fear to them. They will definitely milk you dry. Be strong. Start new life move on. Dun ever trust those scams again.

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
Oh yes, maybe you want to consider closing your bank account and open a new one. Don’t be in a situation of having another forced loan again.

unluckyguy,

First of all STAY CALM.

Good that you have made a Police Report.

Next, block their calls. Use apps like Call Blocker by Vlad Lee. Only allow calls in your contact list to go thru. Install this app for your parents. For the time being remove whatsapp from your hp. Use telegram instead and set security accordingly. The idea is to prevent them from able to contact you from any form of media.

Next, change bank account as advise. If they send some more report to I/O and hold on to it. Don't transfer them even 1 cent.

Next, install CCTV.

I believe you can explain to your parents that you are scammed. Show them the police report that you are not hiding anything. Your family WILL understand, I'm sure of it. We always protect our own in crisis even if they did something wrong. You will be surprise.

Be ready to dial 999, if they visit you. The runners are usually victims in trouble who are scared too.

I and the rest also panic when it happened to us during the 1st week. Gets better as days goes by. Most of these scams only virtual scare tactic, never dare face to face with you.

No victims where harm, only doors, gates and letterbox only.

Now you feel confuse,panic and afraid. Soon when you are calm and collected, confirm you will get angry.

Remember, this is Singapore. Trust in SPF.

Have you tell your parents ?
Use the police report and get approval from town council to install cctv.
Can buy CCTV from Mustaffa.

You don't confront them or keep in touch with them.
If got any harassment, faster go and look for the Police Officer in charge of your case.
You are safe in Singapore because of the SPF hard work.

But do take note of the new tactic they using.

Now they are using Lalamove and macdonald to act as thier runner. Therefore when they reach ur house they will ask the driver to pass u the phone n speak to you.
