Via WhatsApp. Enquired with another friend but I enquired first so I got the hit. He was lucky he didn’t. And they asked where I got their number as I’m not in their database.

They called nok via WhatsApp. Rem to close ur bank account before anything further happens. Just takes 1min to do it online if it’s Dbs/posb.

Rem +65 prefix if appears means it’s not a local number calling. Just ignore.

I’m hoping that I don’t deserve them to spend more effort on me. Like printing my face and send to neighbours. Cox I ghosted them really early.
Yes +65 has been calling.. does it mean that they are based overseas and not actually in sg?

Are these actually LS or loan scammers....??!?

Thanks for your pointers, will do so accordingly today. They shouldn’t be spending any time on u anymore coz u never owe any money actually.

Nope. Rest assure. You are a victim not a criminal. We all gone through this before and we all had reported to police. Its a loan scam. So please report to police immediately. Do not reply their sms/watsapp. Block all their numbers and stay uncontactable. Do not answer any unknown call. Change your phone number if possible.
Normally how Long does it take from the time you ghost them to the time They come house and harrass?

I read a lot of posts here. One forumer scam them back to get their IP address. They are in msia.

They are loan scammers but behave like loan sharks. I’m still wary and vigilant but no longer as scared.

No exact answer here. It all depends on the funds they have in hands. (Runners need to be paid to do jobs).
For some cases, it take days after u ghost. Last time they usually will sent mass sms to your nok first. Then “love letter” to your neighbours. Then sent runners lock your house. Then splash paint.. then last will set fire( which is very rare nowsaday).
But now all hdb had cctv Everywhere. So all this jobs have been minimised. Penalty for working for LS as runner is jail and rotan.

Do not fall into their trap again. Their requirement of U paying $150 today is just to see r u willing to pay. If u paid mean u r a prey to them already. They will definitely ask for more because they know u r afraid of them. So please listen carefully. DO NOT PAY AND BLOCK THEIR NUMBERS. Do not communicate or negotiate with them. They will sure assure u if u paid everything can be settled. DO NOT BELIEVE THEM. They are liar! You will never ended the payment.

You are not alone here. What you need most is moral support from your family and friends. Let your parent know about it and be truth to them. You are just a victim of such loan scam. They will understand. Ask them to bring you to police station to made a report if u have not done so.
