Just keep ignore their text for now. Others will say is a empty threat but I have to be honest with you. They will 100% definitely send runner to splash paint or lock gate to your unit de. But once they do, and u report to SPF about runner splashing paint, it will get less tedious. SPF cannot do anything about text harassment but they can start to do things and follow up when runner physically harass you. So just hope they can quickly send runner to your unit to splash paint (hope u finish install CCTV before that) and provide police the video. (Donít challenge them to send runner of course) Soon, and I hope, will be over for both you and me.
Bro... Things is that I don't even take any loan from them... Why they will send runner???

Install an app "Call blocker by Vlad Lee" if on android. Allow only your call list to go through. The app will block every number not on list automatically.

For whatsapp, block and report. Whatsapp will suspend that number from using whatsapp. Best is to suspend your app for a week or two. Peace of mind.

They cannot have 1000 numbers to use anyway. Mine bombard me with a dozen different numbers until I block all.
Bro... Thing is that I don't even take loan from them... And I already told them I don't need anythings from them...

I also can't stay awake in night just to check whether they send runner...

If you read back like 100 pages back, you are not alone.

All I can say is if CCTV is up, just try to get sleep.

Only way to end if you keep ghosting them. Just accept that they will send runner to do one of the things I mentioned.

If you happen to notice it, call SPF immediately. That action should be what you'll need to do. Don't hesitate.

The faster they send runner, the earlier your case will end. As long as you ghost them.

It doesn't matter if you don't take the loan. As long as they have gotten hold of your personal particulars, they will try to scare you to pay.

That's their objective, fleece money from you. Some victims received money from them and think by return that sum, case close. Sorry, it's not going to happening. If that the case, keep the money. Why return it?

I did that, keep money(after bank cannot revert and I/O say no issue) and ghost them.

Still alive and kicking...

Either way, the victims still be subjected to harassment.

Those are loan scammer. Not those loan shark that really loan you money and charge high interest. Once they have all your information, they can do anything le. Can squeeze then keep squeezing money of course. Really. Just install CCTV asap and just wait for them to send runner so that SPF can follow up on your case.

I have brought this up to my MP for consideration in Parliament. I understand those departing foreign labourer are being paid for their used simcards. Especially those who are not coming back soon or never. Easy for them to get a lot.
MP will not do anything about these problem nowadays. They now only concern about fighting COVID-19 and Cold War with political party that is not on their side. Only can trust SPF to do this kind of things.

This was way before COVID-19. It just an effort. Nevermind if nothing materialise. Trying to help the society in general.

Mine was confirm loanshark not scam. I've been following this thread since my own case settled.

Level and method of harassment almost same intensity.

I can understand how nerve wrecking it is. Was suicidal then but now find it was stupid to end life for those lowly scum of the earth when ghosting them was the only way.

PS: I could have happily move away from this thread and enjoy life. I'm just paying it forward since others have help me before.

Think of it, I believe there was some changes like now local numbers doesn't show +65 (so any +65 numbers shld be spoofed overseas numbers) and the recent announcement of a new SPF scam unit that have powers to freeze or check bank accounts within days.

Sometimes under duress, we might be impatient for an outcome. But patience is a must.

I'm not saying because of me but they do acknowledge and responded to this problem. Of course more can be done. Especially local telcos need to do something to the spam adverts.

I only hope that next in the future parliament will announced that for loan shark runner, doesnít matter if is physical runner or assist bank transfer runner, once caught and arrest will sentence to death sentence. It really definitely impact on loan shark or scammer operation very greatly.

Do not pay, it will go into another victim account and your account could become implicated.

Do not fear them, just ignore until they give up.
