Just do the sames as what u are doing now.
But considering that these may be the "real" ALs, what would the reaction once he stops paying them?

Use "Do not disturb" mode also, set "Receive calls from contacts only"
Anyone else who calls you will end up in missed calls.
If it is a number, you can choose if you want to call back. (check whatsapp groups if the number is someone you may know)
If it is a private number there is no chance of you calling them back.
Prevention is better than a cure
How to activate the " Do Not Disturb" call mode?

no need acct number. if that receiving number has been linked to a bank acct, then just key it in will do.

With all these scams going on, wonder how wise or useful to link hp number to bank

peeps, need your advise

one of my family members has just admitted that he has borrowed money from 5 of these ALs. according to him, two of them he's known for a few years. if he needs 1k, they will transfer to him the amount. and monthly have to pay the defer of $400 until he can settle the principal+interest. according to him, he's never had any issues meeting the payment

but this year, he's got loans with 5 of them, all differing amounts but same payment method i.e. defer until can pay principal + interest. the issue now is that he can't make the monthly deferments anymore as it has snowballed to more that $5k. he's asked me for advice but my previous incidents were all the scams version.

i really wanna tell him to stop all payments and make a police report. but what else can he do?
If he borrowed with no proper contract or the people lent him are not on the MAS licensed list, it is all UML = illegal.

If they anytime change terms, pay already say never pay, anyhow charge interest or say transfer wrong account or whatever nonsense lies, ITS A SCAM!

Hi guys Here is my story

I took up loans and ended up stuck with payment.Some lenders are nice that they are willing to let me settle slowly while those deferment ones die die ask me to pay even after I paid their defer loans.Now that I am unable to cope,I tried talking rhigs out and see if I can settle my payment slowly.All the threatening starts ,burn house lah ,spray paint lah .I seek advice to one lender and all he said is ignore and block.But another issue I'm facing is I was stupidly enough to open up bank accounts to other lenders thinking it's going to offset me some loans.Now I cannot take it anymore but just wanna come clean with the police.But I worry I might be in more trouble after reading up the fact that I assisted in their money lending operations.

I have another story where a lender transferred me an amount even when I don't take it from them claiming it's a 'trial' loan and I will get a loan after paying them an amount.So what I did was I never use the money and return back whatever they give me.And now they claim to say I took that loan and want me to pay back to clear in which I never loan in the first place.Now they are threatening me with pictures of o$p$,trying to contact my NOK and also calling up office.

I need advise especially the bank account part.

Hi bro,

My advise is to face up and come clean with the police. Ignore and block all calls coming in and also to change your bank accounts.

All these AL cant really do anything, install a camera and standby just incase something comes up. Stay strong with your minds, dont let those pictures or voice mails scare you!

It happens to me and till a point i return fire back to them, want money u directly come my house take. Dont be phone warriors hide behind.

Tell your friend question them who are you ? If illegal or private moneylender i will report to police.

If you value this job, let your boss and colleagues know you have been scammed if you know they will support you.

If not, start looking for other job. There is no pattern to scammers, they will use fear and lies to get you to pay.

Do not entertain them, every harassment, lodge a report.
Anytime you encounter any suspicious people around your home or office call 999.
