Ya just do that, basically there is nothing much we can do. Only can block n reject call. Remember every UML call will liksly to have a +65 infront. After they cannot find you they will move to ur NOK then office then courier service such as LALAMOVE AND MACDONALD, lastly will be splash paint locking of main gate. By looking at your case likely harrasment will not be lots as they have already earn ur money. So just he firm tell ur nok office about this and stop paying them even they threaten you. Every harrasment n msg just file a report online, no need to scared them.

Dear all, I just created this account to share my story. I am a new victim of these LOAN SCAMS from just past week. Read through many of the messages here and am *SUPER ANGRY* at how so many have been cheated. For all the victims here, we must stand up and stamp out these scammers and crime.

So much harassment is made to the victims and stress created to them and family members, colleagues, workplace. Jobs lost, family lost, friends lost. THIS MUST STOP and victims must unite to make Singapore a safe place and reduce the number of victims to ZERO.

The 2 people I talked to are Chinese Malaysian.

My story:

I was promised a loan of 10k for 5 yrs and only need to pay $200 for 60 times. (LIE)

I was asked to send IC, income statement, next of kin contacts for loan approval (DONT EVER DO THIS) [others have been asked for SINGPASS, DON"T EVER DO THIS]

I was told the loan was all legal and can be done online (LIE)

I was told they will make a test transaction to me and I just need to transfer them back before they send me the actual loan amount (LIE)

I was told after the funds transfer to me, then they will send me the Terms and Conditions of the loan (LIE)

I was told that they have a legit company with legit license and got website (LIE) - I later checked and found they gave name of an "expired" company" not on approved LML list

After the test transaction amount transferred to me, they started to harass me for the money, saying I took the loan already and pressured me to transfer by a certain time, if not I will be in trouble. After that they harass 2 of my next of kin with threatening messages. You will get it from your next of kin.

*** Never even touch any of these people EVER, also stay away from LML if you can. *** These are not money lenders, they are LOAN SCAMMERS. ***

Spoke to Police, Spoke to Credit Association.

Advice given is:

1. File Report ASAP
2. Do not do any transactions
3. Close bank account ASAP
4. Change all phone numbers
5. Block all their numbers (spare yourself the harassment)
6. Brace yourself for any harassment online or offline
7. Call 999 immediately if there any suspicious people seen near your home or office
8. Lastly, DO NOT BE AFRAID. (You are not the first victim and will not be the last)

Victims who want to work together to fight this and to share info - PM me. Will pass on as much info so that they can work. This is our Singapore, let us make it SAFE.

If not, pass info to:

Members of the public are also advised not to work with or assist loan sharks in any way and to call the police at 999 or the X-Ah Long hotline at 1800-924-5664 if they suspect anyone of being involved in illegal loan-sharking activities.

Crime does NOT PAY. (Pls google these news, I can't post links as am too new)

Case 1: Police warn students against loan shark jobs as 109 people arrested in 3-day blitz
Case 2: 'Auntie' loan shark runner arrested by police

Case 3: 118 arrested for suspected loan shark activities after four-day police operation

First-time offenders found guilty of carrying out or assisting in unlicensed moneylending business may be fined between S$30,000 and S$300,000, jailed up to four years and given up to six strokes of the cane.

Those found guilty of acting on behalf of an unlicensed moneylender, committing or attempting acts of harassment may get up to five years' jail, a fine between S$5,000 and S$50,000 and three to six strokes of the cane.

Anyone convicted of providing false contact information to obtain loans from loan sharks may be jailed a maximum of 12 months and those guilty of failing to report a change of address may get a maximum S$5,000 fine, up to five years in jail or both.

Those found guilty of instigating a youth to assist in unlicensed moneylending business or carrying out harassment acts on behalf of loan sharks may be jailed up to nine years, fined between S$6,000 and S$300,000 and given a maximum of 12 strokes of the cane.

Once you had pay more then the initial loan amount. The chances of the LS sending runners to your place will significantly reduce coz it is not worth for them spending their resources. If you keep paying them you feeding them and they will keep coming back for more.
Trust me it will never end. U will start to realise on the last payment for your loan.They will become uncontactable and will suddenly reappear telling u that you had late payment.fxxx them...

Cheating is punished with imprisonment of up to one year, or a fine, or both. Aggravated Cheating - is punishable under the Singapore Penal Code Chapter 224, Section 420 with imprisonment for a term of up to 7 years, and the offender is also liable to fine. Imprisonment is mandatory. Remember this bro.

Don't enquire loan through Whatsapp and Facebook.
What's the point to borrow $400 then keep paying to them non stop ?
By the way, if really need the money urgently can use Bank Credit card balance transfer facilities.
No need get money from strangers.

Can we predict what criminals will do? As long you fear them, they will keep chasing you for $$. Get on with life.

Bro, listen to our bro Jleague. They will definitely try to contact yr workplace and NOK. So give them a heads up so they wont be caught off guard when they call once they cant get thru you.
For me I get my NOK to tell them they dont know me and put down the phone. Block their number afterwards on your NOK phone. Dont need to have any extensive conversation with them. Maybe I'm lucky or my LS was lazy but they call them once only and thats it.
Good luck. 💪
