And now i got 6 missed calls from a private number. What should i do.
Hello there, please stay calm. Just don’t pick up. Definitely they will be spamming you with calls, it shall stop sooner or later once they have found another new target victim. Ask your NOK don’t pick up unknown or private number calls as it’s high likely be them.
As for LML, you’ve call & speak to them. If it unsuccessful, then you may consider to look for Adullum Life Counselling to speak about the issue you’re having.

Please read guys.

For sms, if you using android phone ( not familiar with iphone) under sms -> settings -> block messages -> block phrases. You can add common phrases they use.

For calls, you can install an app called Call Blocker by Vlad Lee. Just set to block all calls except on your contact list.

For Whatsapp, can report and block only.I hope whatsapp updates with feature to prevent anyone from adding you to a group and block any unknown number not on our contact list.

Like I said before, our Govt bodies with telcos need to collaborate to stop this menace. It's getting out of hand.

Oh.. LS just inform that if he don't receive the $ by 9pm, standby to guard your hse. Threat or just scaring...? Am worry nw
If u really worry then install CCTV outside.. it will at least make the runner think twice b4 he wants to throw paint.. if he really throw then download the footage and give it to the police... that him go in seat for good

Hi bros,

I will like to ask about LML. If you don't pay them, what will they do? They will send debt collectors to your house and company?

Because my friend said that maybe the law has changed. Recently about 2 weeks ago, he did not pay them and no debt collectors went up his house and office. Only call him and send letters.

Can any bros verify?
Thanks

hi thanks for e reply, my only worry is my NOKs... worried they will be harrass too... for those whom stopped payments, mind sharing what are the experience/events that took place in the event we stop to pay...tq
As mention if u see any unfamiliar faces do call the police let the police to screen them. I had stop payment early this yr and also got alot of calls and harassment both my family and office... I even got free paint work for my door .. but I just simply dun care and leg the police to the job ... and now I able to get back to my normal life ...so dun ever give in to them.

It could be a recycled number. Anyway, those private number calls should be soliciting for you to “support” them for loans. Just ignore or cancel the call.

If you are curious who is calling, then just answer, listen to what the caller say and hang up.

I know it quite irritating and makes you panariod when you are in this situation. Hang in there and stay strong!

I know how you are feeling, very jumpy with the slightest sound especially knocking of doors or any commotion outside the house.

Phone rings or msg coming in also makes the heart skip a beat.

Try to churn your fears or anxiety into anger, be brave and prepared for whatever that “may” happen and get on with life.

All the best.

Hi Viper

It also depend on your amt and the size of the company if small company they will keep calling and call your NOK .

For my case i cant make payment also , they start to send sms to me say if dont pay they will hand my case over to debt collector , so i approached abdullam , they help nego for monthly payment .

Police did say nobody can force u but they dont understand the fear.
