does anyone have experience where LS send list of neighbours names n contact no?do they actually call the neighbours or itís just a threat?
I received them too but so far nothing happen. None of my neigh ours said anything so I assume all is good. Just one of their tactics to scare us and make is pay. They feed on our fears. Fear of losing job, fear of losing face and etc so dont fall for their trap. Dont be afraid. Things will be hard but eventually it will get better.

Goodluck and Jiayou! 💪💪

Hi, please close your current bank account. Prevent them from xfer you any amt from now onwards. Definitely will chase after you for that amt but stop paying!! Cuz once you pay, you’ll never stop.. Stay strong!

Maybe, because sometimes can be licence money lender or unlicensed money lender.

Just ignore them
Cannot be from LML... Sure is UML. Coz LML cannot do advertisements

Please close ur bank account and report police ... dun waste time to talk to him or asking to transfer back ... just closed the account and ask bank to transfer back the $$$ ..or the other way can ask the police what can u do to return the money back ... please take note dun ever transfer the $$$ back tour own .. as if other victim make police report ur account will be reflect out and u will get urself bz ...like what I was gonna investigate.. so now go and report police ASAP ... and keep the report ...

Hi. Few days ago i encounter this ad on fb, providing personal loan at good repayment plans 1k 24 mths $55 per mth. So i whatsapp and enquire thinking that its legal loan as there is license num on the ad. The person ask for my NRIC and singpass to check if i an eligible for this loan. So i gave them. And after awhile they told me my loan is approved! And req for my acc num but sad to say i dont hav an acc so i requested to go down to the shop and apply face to face instead. Then they told me they are UML!! And i say i dont wish to continue with this loan and they say once apply means own them! They keep threatening they will go up my house, and keep calling my work place and home. I am in distress... helppppppppp

Question is will they really turn up at my house and burn or splash paint?
I have already blocked them.
But they r still making calls to my work place and home.
I just need someone who will understand my situation. My mom is not very supportive. She is adding more stress to me saying if my house is splashed she will kill me and kill herself after that. I m really depress

Hello there, firstly do not be afraid since you did not receive any sum from them. Just ignore their call or text. Please do a police report for safety. They are just threatening you as they wants you to take up a loan. This is just a UML tactic. Don’t be afraid & just ignore their call. Tell your office about what happened and I’m sure they’ll understand your situation. If there are suspicious person at your doorstep, immediately dial 999. Most importantly, please stay strong. You’ll get thru this.

It’s safe no worries & the officer will call you after they received your report & advice you from there. https://eservices.police.gov.sg/cont...683.1521187332

Show your mom the text message to proof that you’ve enquire about it BUT you did not borrow any. Tell auntie don’t worry they won’t splash paint de as if they do so they will be losing money as they have to pay their runner to do the job & since you did not borrow at all and they sure expect no money being pay back in return too. So don’t worry sister, stay calm. Don’t let these pull you down. Make a online report first, please. And also if you happened to see ad on fb & carousell its all UML, not LML. As LML, are not supposed to ad on anywhere else, beside their co website. Most importantly if you ever happen to see any suspicious people hanging around at your doorstep, don’t be nervous or scared, just dial 999 straight away.

If you’re afraid, why not install a CCTV sister? At least you can keep track and all. If you see like a suspicious person then you may just dial? As from what I believed if you didn’t borrow any sum, I’m sure they won’t come and splash paint. All they can do is pester you & threaten you to take up a loan from them, that’s the best they could do.
