1) You are Singaporean
2) You stay in Singapore
3) You never borrow from loan shark
4) You made a police report

Why are you so worry ?


Faster go to Town council with the police report and apply for approval to install the CCTV.
Just go to 24 hours Mustaffa buy the HD 1080p CCTV.
Give the CCTV footage to police if runners dare to show face again to harass your family.
You got nothing to lose.
The runners future confirm down the drain after come out from the jail.

They telephone your parents? Or someone went to your house and tell your parents that someone want to speak with you on their phone?

Yes I have readed though the past six month and now i just have to prepare for they to come if it happens .
Just want to know how long will it stop ??
Weeks month or year
The faster you ignore them, the faster you don't react to them, no matter what they do, the faster they give up. Ever time harass you, file a police report. Anytime you see anything suspicious or people, don't hesitate to call 999.
