Yeah, I thought the same way too. They even said, you must atleast borrow from 5 "stalls" and they'll give you the total amount that you've to pay for them to settle all those 5 "stalls". However, if you loan below 5, you can still engage them as long as you pay the amount of 5 "stalls". Funny right.

Dont f care them la. Let the runners come. Install cctv. Once caught their asses will tear. Dont be afraid of criminals.

They are not helping. They allowed unlicensed moneylenders to post on it. So don’t trust them. The only way is to trust ownself and don’t pay them. Fight own fears and don’t give in to those threats will do

Im new and would like to share my side of story.
 
I technically went through the entire thread both part 1 and 2. I was scammed into UML over a WhatsApp blast msg.
I know I was stupid to send them all my details. not no Singpass or any ATM card or Account.
Technically at this point of time after 3 weeks of struggling. I don't owe them anything anymore but they are forcing me to take up a small loan one after another. they will always come up with 101 reasons and threaten me with everything and everything.

The thing I had done as of 05 Aug
1. I close my bank account already.
2. I block all of them on WhatsApp.
3. install CCTV at my door front.
4. block that contacts on my NOK phone.
5. Deactivate all my social medial(fb, insta linkin and etc.) Technically google cannot find anything about me.

today consider the first day of mia. Please let me know if you have any advise. or any one of you is sharing the same experience.

i will try to update daily.

you can talk to me. i get into **** about the same time as you

OomphFroglet 06-08-2019 12:18 AM

You need to warn your NOK that sometimes they would use other numbers to call. Just tell them wrong number will do. As for your workplace, tell them you’ve been scammed.

have you made a report ?

OomphFroglet 06-08-2019 09:29 AM

The moment you stopped paying them is already getting your life back. They will still try and harass or threaten. But it’s only through WhatsApp or letters. You just heck care them will do

Thank you for you kind words. May I ask your side of story.

OomphFroglet 06-08-2019 11:51 AM

Mine few years ago already. From a few thousand and they can add interest until rolled to 30k over. I never even borrow that much and paid until I couldn’t pay anymore. So I stopped. House was splashed and neighbours received letters. But they understand my case because my late wife got cancer and I was working 3 jobs. They even offered to stay vigilant at that time if they see any suspicious character.

You should make a police report so they can send more patrol to your area. CCTV would be the best.

I used to worry that they would hurt my children or scared I lose face. Then I realised I was more afraid that my children go hungry. So that was when I stopped paying them and they threatened. I just be more fierce than them and asked them come. Like they send one, I will beat one.
