Actually I think the common fear is letting family members know. At that time, I was so ashamed. I was afraid to tell my kids. But the most heartwarming part they told me was that I worked so hard and they understand why I did it. So one sentence from them “ we stand together”. Wah that part I totally broke down.

we all know they r bloodsuckers. SO snowballing is their way to suck u dry.

never ever touch them again

The runner who splashed my house got caught within 2 weeks. Even now I still keep the video, in case I see him around my area. I will hoot him until pig head
another way is really to move house and start again, but not everyone can.

Yeah. That’s why after the ah long case, I also used those hard earned money to good use. Education, food, insurance.

House can easily sell. But holds sentimental values. My wife died in this house. I like to think her spirit still stay with us. That’s why don’t want to sell. If sell, it can help financially but my heart won’t be able to do it. We build this nest together.

Actually I sometimes pity those runners. They wanted the easy way out to clear their loans and ended up doing all these acts to ruin their future. They get caught, sentence is heavy.

My daughter didn't talk to me for days.
I hope will get over this soon.

Sister, it’s hard now. But when you realised the money you paid can put into better use for yourself and your family, then those Ah long can’t win this.

Have a good talk with your daughter. Explain to her why you enquired it in the first place. She will still be angry but by the right of the day, you want to provide a better life for them too.

that was spoken in the heat of the moment previously.
But fact is, victims should not be afraid or else the cycle will never end. The bug stops when we are not afraid. I think this is what we are all here to learn.
End of day, a victim turned runner is still a criminal. And they must also learn not to bow to LS pressure to be runners. That's how the law is.

After i changed number and install cctv, i wasn't afraid anymore.
If u r short of cash, always look for proper legal channels. Work harder and get by. Everyone makes mistakes and the faster u learn, the faster u can get back on track.

This one I have to agree. The more they sensed your fears, they will use it to their advantages and threaten even more. So if they scold on the phone, they can’t do anything physically. They just wanted to squeeze more money.

yes..need to instill in the mindset of all victims " NO FEAR" , brace up and move on in life..

Only worry for those who are still feeding these scammers because of fear or face factors and not seeking help..
