Hi bro Spidie,

Your encounter is exactly what i went through previously.

They transferred the money into my account and said thanks for supporting them. I threw back and said no, i don't know you. I told them to give me an account number for me to transfer back. They said to call or message them at 1305hrs (exact timing). So i told them to fly kite. I made a police report, got the bank to close my account, changed my number ... even my whole family changed our numbers ... it died down after that ...

My advise is if you have never asked them for a loan but they transferred it to you, it's a scam. Close off all communications with them. FYI, i went to my MP and he got the npc to loan me a CCTV and even had a few plainclothes officers loitering at my void deck. It was all good in the end.

Hope this helps
Thanks Ravenking80s . I think they are crazy. So do they went to your house to disturb you in the end ? Never borrow anything and they can spend all the effort And time doing this. We won't pay anything to them also. Really is waste their time also.

I'll tell you what was scary. somehow they got hold of my sister's photo and where she works (she's a teacher btw). then they started harassing the school. luckily for her, her principal was understanding and the Ops manager at her school were former police officers.

but after we changed our numbers, nothing happened. i hope that you and others who are in this situation will be able to find peace of mind soon. if you need to speak, you can always dm me bro

Read this news, now you know why our data is all leak when ever we go into LML.

Seriously police shld look into this matter for LML business, it kinda breach of data lehz. Haiz.
Hi bro Trustdade,

It's not just the LML; telcos and even banks are holding on to our personal details. There is also a possibility that the leak may come from them.

No doubt on that , but my guess bank n telco is strict so possibility is quite low.

Anyone got lobang for cctv, i wanna install. Recently took loan from UML take $700, payback $1000. Den i paid deferment $250. After pay den was asked to take another loan of $700. But end up receiving $750. So when 2nd week comes i couldn't pay the deferment coz it's $500 for 2 loans. So the LS suggested to open bank acct for him, den i can get $400/mth. I agreed and passed my atm card, but i didn't passed it personally. Placed it somewhere at the RC a few blocks away. Few days later another guy sent a pic saying he transferred $300 to my acct. I was shocked, i straight away asked for the acct no to transfer back since i nvr asked for any loan. The guy said he'll give later(which ended up a few days later). And when he gave me the acct no he said can only transfer $200, coz later got problem with bank. So i blindly followed and transferred $200. Few days later the 1st guy asked for payment, den i said i tot already deducted from the $400? Den he say still short of $100 coz 2 loans. So I transferred the balance $100. After realising my mistake, i called my bank to report loss of atm card and made a police report through i-witness. The officer did a follow up but couldn't do much as the harrassments were done only through txts. I've called 999 this afternoon as i've received another harrassment thru txt coz i'm worried my mum is at home alone. So that's why i wanna install cctv to at least deter the runners from doin anything.

Bro faizal8428, pmed u with regards to cctv.

Bro spidie, the harassments will pass once they cannot contact you.

Bro Shafiz, just continue to ignore/block them.Go and make police report asap.

Bros, just follow the steps we have been giving for the past month. Read through and understand that these are more like scammers than the UMLs of the 90s where one need to personally meet them or their runners to borrow.

Their threats are merely texts or calls. No more than that. They might send some legit couriers like lalamove to personally talk to you using the courier hp.

The more "establish" ones might send runner to lock gate, splash paint or paste debt notes but don't worry if this happen. Just report to I/O and 999. SPF WILL initiate immediate investigation and your troubles might end faster once the runners are arrested.

Believe us when we say that once runners are involved, SPF will start to take immediate action. Continue to provide evidence of threats to your I/O.

Remember to call 999 if you see suspicious characters near your unit. Our local UMLs are not an establish organisation like Colombia cartels. They normally don't have the manpower to stake out or follow you around. So don't bother to peep at your windows for spies.

Futhermore, these UMLs are partly smart to con but not smart enough. If not, they already have real proper job with high posts.

And man up, stop paying. That's the best way to hurt them.

It's a loan scam, file police reports to protect yourself and stop paying, break contact.

I've stopped paying since i realised that they are indeed UML, i've paid $250 using my own money and the rest is from the $400 and $300 i got from opening bank acct and the sudden transfer. I've borrowed from LM before but cleared already. Thanks for the tip.

Threats and fear creating is their normal mode of operation, block and ignore. Every time they harass you, file a report.

Anytime you feel unsafe or see suspicious people to you place, call 999.

If you did not receive anything from them, just ignore them, tell Nok to say wrong number. They will try all lies and threat to create fear. Ignore them. Any threats or harassment, file police reports.

Once they find can't squeeze anything out of you, they will give up.

Yeah this one is a scam. Best move is to cut off all contact, change your contact numbers and report to the police

Bro, when i was facing this, there was one point of time when i called the police because i was panicking. I didnt take any money from these idiots but somehow they got my personal info.

But I got a shock when one of the police officers who came over to me that even he got those kind of calls and messages.

A lot of the bros here have given good, solid advice. Anytime you need a listening ear, we are here
