Ah long wants to put money into the account. Let them do it.
After spending it and poh mata, be prepared to be tio gan by the IO.

But it does not change the fact that you are the victim and when people throw money freely, the natural response is to grab first.
My bank said they will try to reverse the money to the sender(probably a victim's acct ). If they can't then police advise is to return to State or just hold it in your bank perpetually.

Yeah. We paid conservancy charges monthly also. They will paint it but the paint not so good. Ended up I went and bought a can to repaint it.

The town council will re-paint for us?

Have you reported on the bank account number? What police will do is instruct bank to freeze that account and of course they will also ask the account holder to go down for investigation.

Sorry to hear that but indeed you have loaned from LS.

My case here is $ not yet received but asked for another 2k n comes out with nonsense reason.

I will not entertain them n let police handle this case.

I recently changed mine. Last time one was those old school types. I saw some affordable ones at Qoo10. The one I am using now cost less than $80.

I got read past posts as well. Even got one ah long posted in here. Of course people will take precaution. But what Iíve experienced was a nightmare for me also. Day and night living in fear. From a $800 loan and even I wanted to pay off, they kept deferred until I cannot substain it. Then the temptation on borrowing another to cover which was a stupid move. It only solved that weekís loan but following week I suffered
Which one ah long posting?

I will take out my chopper from kitchen n will call 999 as well
Pls take it easy. Runner is real people and might also be victim. Pls don't harm people no matter how angry or stress you might be. Let the CCTV and police do their work. Be not afraid of them, be strong and move on.

I won't go to that extend to kill runner but as a mother I want to protect my children. I don't wish to guess what they will do but I hv to b prepared.

As they will act only during our slp then try his luck..

Does it help by installing Cctv? I just met with a loan scam last week and I gave them my IC and singpass as well. They then tfr me $800 and ask me to tfr them back $1600. After doing so, they requested me to tfr another $2800 for new Ďcustomerí and without thinking much, I did. It only took me a while to realize that Iíve been scammed as they explained that the $2800 is for opening up active account and I have to tfr another $2800 to open up inactive account. End up I told them Iím not loaning anymore but they insist that loan was approved and I have to tfr them the balance $2800. I had signed on an agreement what should I do? Real stresses up now as they should think that Iím easy target.

Stupid enough I got scam yesterday too and I transfer them back the amount and another 600. They asked for more and threaten my family through calling my house number . I told my family about it and they are supportive . I Guess if they want to splash paint , burn or send letter to neighbours there is nothing we can do except inform police .

When they know they canít get anything out of you they will stop . The more they think you can squeeze the more they will find you .

Anyway police say is up to us whether to fix cctv or not . But I heard if we fix cctv normally they wonít tackle us , they will tackle the neighbours . Not sure about it .

Why you even want to transfer them the money when you have enough money for yourself? It’s hard to get back your money now. They usually used this tactic to trick people.

Bro, I think you already won by having your family’s support. They send runner also need to pay them. Technically you don’t owe them anything. They just think you are easy target. So now, lodge police report. Install cctv and deactivate your social media accounts to prevent them from further threats.
