Police can't protect you 24/7. So we must stand up and protect ourselves and you're doing great now and follow all the step to get out of this ordeal.

Like many people in the forum have said,they cannot do any form of physical harm unto you. You need to bear with the mental harassment at the time being and once you give in to the fear,they will keep squeezing you.
agree canít protect 24/7. Anymore victims here had been harrassing free from those LS for years ? Really hope those harassing will end soon . Already receive love letter splash paint threaten burn my house already. But I never once give in and pay them at all .

Then you have nothing to worry already. Just don’t go and borrow anymore. If the UML lose one runner meaning they lose one more person to pay them back. Now you can relax a bit.

Nobody here can predict when the LS runners would strike again.

Instead of worrying when they will carried out their next harassment why don't you live your life as normal and start your new life afresh.

Acting on behalf of an unlicensed moneylender, committing or attempting to commit any acts of harassment, first-time offenders may be fined between S$5,000 and S$50,000, jailed up to 5 years and caned.

1. STOP paying the loan sharks as their main job is to squeeze as much money as they can from you.You got to stop paying them and make police report asap.

2. Be upfront with your next of kins and offices. Tell them about your involvement with the loans sharks,whether you had borrowed from them or the loan sharks deposits loans without your approval (scam).Your support from NOK and offices are important.

3.You would be worried about the reactions from your NOK and office. Talk to your NOKs and family members or keep a lookout for new job.

4. Change a new number if you can and stop all communications with the loan sharks.Just lie low and wait for the whole issues to calm.

5.You just have to bear with all these harassment and wait for the things to tide over.They may call your neighbours,call your offices.

6. DONT EVER ASSIST THE LOAN SHARKS by giving your atm cards or becoming their runners.

Remember you are not alone and many had come thru all these ah long ordeal.

Find a Social Services Centre. They are trained cousellors in dealing with loan sharks problems for loan shark victims and they can help you to talk to your NOKs and family members and give them calm.
They will help you talk to your employers and may help to you to retain your job while dealing with the problems. They also have a support group and you can meet and get sharing with a lot people who had loan sharks problems in the past but had overcame them. You will find that YOU ARE NOT ALONE and can see the hope thru them.

If they splashed paint or lock your gate, just report to the police and let the police do their job.
They also dont have an army of runners to do all the harassment with today strict laws around.

Hope will calm you and give you some help on dealing with the loan sharks.

Please report to police asap.
Stop all contact with the loansharkS. And stop all payments.
Block all their calls and sms/watsapp. Do not read their sms/watsapp.
Approach counsellor for help.

I did made a police report and blocked their contacts. They threatened to come to my house and create a scene. I'm bracing myself for paint throw and locked gate. I scared only something might happened to my wife and kids while I'm at work.
