They r feeding on your ability to pay and pay them And feeding on ur fear. Scammers tactics... Did u manage to request for investigation on CCTV to see who took the video and picture of ur house?

Good that u hv done the necessary steps. If there is harassment at your residence, police will catch ASAP.
ald have a cctv installed but cld not run the playback due to some issues. Now at night i manually record myself. Made a police report 3 weeks ago also. Just curious how they even manage to screenshot the legit ibanking transaction for the bigger loan and I did not revd the cash... and yet they still come and threaten me after 3 months saying big loan out as per system. in fact after the final help, scammer.1 said he will block me cuz his side got issue.. Haiz.

Iím sure they will disturbed your NOK if they havent. My nok was called up immediately once I blocked their calls. Closed my accounts and I refused to answer. Changed me number in less than 3 hours. Accounts closed too.

I believe once cb is over they will start calling office but I have already informed them.

So now, after 3 weeks are they still disturbing you? We are waiting for someone to take photo of our house so that we can catch them. My main door is open wide from morning till night, police says this prevents them from locking the door or do anything funny. But night time no choice have to close.

Honestly they sent me the videos and photos I didnít even look or watch because I know it makes me feel scared. I simply ignored. Even after changing mobile number I still feel paranoid when the phone rings

I blocked them to be exact 29 days ago (that's the date I made police report too) since then they tried calling my 1st NOK with spoof numbers but cuz its a normal phone with no WA I just blocked it. 2nd NOK has WA but so far nothing (thank god) I changed number after I made police report as well and closed my existing bank accounts too. So far no calls to NOK. I really wish all of us can come together and do something to this scammers. But I am curious, can someone actually photoshop or edit i-banking transaction image to be exactly the same as what we usually see when we do inter bank transfers. Scammer 1 & 2 obviously knows the bigger loan was NOT even credited to me and that was fake but yet still demand for it. Idiots! Can the scammers number be shared here so that all of us can add them on WA and block them as many times as possible and their account gets disabled, I am sure the rest of them who are victims like us can have their scammer numbers blocked in WA and report their accounts.

I dont think we need to do that. As long as you had reported all their numbers to police. Police will work with telco company to disable their accounts. Of course those numbers might not belong to them. Might be belong to victims. They will be charged for assisting loanshark activities.
So please report all their phone numbers and bank accounts to the police. I dont think they have so many lines to call. So slowly they will stop the harassment.

Its not a phone line. Its an internet call or watsapp. And w.e.f 15 Apr 2020. All phone number with a Ď+í even a Ď+65í is a oversea call. All local number do not have a Ď+í

I reported and stated in my police report 29 days ago, however I can still see them being active on WA, I am afraid to even call my IO who is assigned to my case to inform the change of mobile number as well Do the police really look into all our reported cases for loansharks and etc and do something to the numbers and bank accounts or leave it as it is. Just curious.

Yes. Of course. Read the news every few weeks you will see hundreds were arrested.

Those are who have opened bank accounts and given away their ATM cards and personal identification numbers to loan sharks to facilitate unlicensed moneylending businesses.
Under the Moneylenders Act, when a bank account or ATM card of any person is used to facilitate moneylending by an unlicensed moneylender, that person is presumed to have assisted in unlicensed moneylending.

Those convicted of the above for the first time may be fined between $30,000 and $300,000, jailed for up to four years, and get up to six strokes of the cane.

Talking abt this I changed my number but got a +65 called in via WhatsApp. I thought itís some scam I didnít pick. But actually it was someone I know. So using WhatsApp even local numbers still will be +65 appearing

scam

It's been a few months since I last got scammed and everything has been peaceful after I ghosted them. So to those who are new here, trust the advice the forum gave you, it's been helpful when I got scammed. Really grateful to everyone who made their posts here, their words gave me the support to go through that period of time, thank you.

Hang in there, the harassment will probably stop when they can't get anything from you, not to mention that it is now the CB period which makes it hard to come to your doorstep, they will be caught easily. Don't reply to their msg, just block and report, ignore unknown calls, when my NOK received the call, I just told them it's scam. The more you ignore them, the less they bother you.
