Hi

I was a victim 6 months ago.
I lost my job
Disturbed my NOKs
Threat msgs, different phone calls.
Tbh they are the same.
I spent days and weeks not sleeping at night to monitor any suspicious movements.
Best to change your mobile number, close your bank account. Inform your management at work about this. If they cant accept it, quit! I have colleagues judging me and i cant even face them at work. I left and now i have other job.
I repeat, stop paying them. Pay them for what?
I was in depression. Lost weight and couldnt help thinking if i would be harassed
I was staying with my elderly parents. Even worst.
My husband got mad. He kept bringing me down with sarcasms.
I have to admit, i was stupid.
But i didnt get any harassment. So i guess mine was just a scam.
For your case, report to your IO for any suspicious movements.
Inform your condo security to not accept any visitors.
Suffer for a while. Just make sure no one is allowed to go to your unit no.
They can try to pretend to be food delivery or so. But even if they provide diff unit no, still the owners of the residence will say they didnt order or wtv it is right.
Dont be afraid. Put cctv and sacrifice abit of your night sleep to monitor.
Just give it 2-3 months.
We have to pay for our stupid mistakes too.
Always be alert. Condo is better than HDB. Hdb anyone can walk pass or see your flat from afar. Condo you have the benefits of letting your guards know. And you too need to inform the guards to why youre doing this.
Lesson learnt: never take up loans, be it with the banks or LML or UML
Ive learnt my lesson. The anxiety and depression almost killed me inside.
I hope you and your husband can get through this! Stay strong!

Thank you dear. I hope you too will keep fighting this and not give up. Let anyone judge but u stay strong.If theyre not contributing positivity to your life, then erase the fact that you once knew them. We're here a text away. anytime you need a listening ear and morale support.

You need to deactivate your Facebook or Instagram. Some would use it against you. Also, why are you still using the same number? Time to change it

You will be more paranoid and stressed if the texts keep coming. When my FM ghosted them, we were harassed. They even pmed my friend on FB. I told my friend to ignore and lodge police report. Upon changing numbers for all in the family, it was quite peaceful. Until they splashed paint, but after that, it was all over.

My take is...NEVER BORROW FROM ANY UML. YOU Do not understand the hell you are going to get yourself and your family into!

I am into my week 3 ...ghosting...very determined to break the chain of torture...in Singapore..you can run...but you can't hide...all those UMLs out there, our SPFs are waiting for you...!

Maybe this is a trend. My experience is a round 7 years ago. First attack also with black soya sauce, 2nd attack with white paint and the 3rd attack will be red paint.

Want to put a stop? Make borrowing a crime. Currently, borrower is deem as a victim.
