Today a LS transferred $750 to my account. I called the bank and made a police report online. I blocked his number on WhatsApp too. Hopefully everything will be fine ~

Sending runner will be their final straw. They have to pay the runner and the runner is never one of their own but usually victims themselves.

Normally runner come chain your gate and run, splash your gate and run, paste debtor note and run. Always run away because the runner also scared. Only stupid ones hang around and create a commotion, asking to be caught by SPF. The rare occasion runner burn door confirm SPF will put extra effort to track and arrest.Their investigation will be fast track. Confirm get extra too in their sentencing.

So it's a costly errand for the LS. If you still don't comply then game over for them.

They will lose money paying runner to scare you. Unless the sum owed is large, they won't be so persistent. Nothing to profit spending so much money to repeatedly scare you.

This is their lobang we are happy to share and expose.

Simply ignore ALL rubbish they send and treat it like SPAM mail.

Make them feel powerless. BUT report to I/O if message contain life-threatening messages. Those are in fact empty threats too.

No need to worry as long as we live in Singapore.
