a taxi rear ended me and i wrote down his particulars and took photos. taxi driver wanted to take a photo of my IC and license.

at first i rejected and said i didnt take a photo of his so why should he take a photo of mine? but he said it was because i didnt want to take a photo of his?

finally i agreed to let him take the photo but i also took a photo of his IC and license.

is it possible if he use the photo to print out and borrow from sharks or LML?

I think the new generation of LS or Forced Loan Scammers require to "look" into your CPF account and HDB via your Singpass to verify you. They will use HP of your NOK and Office particulars as a tool later to harass them, to harass you.

Giving IC and Driving License not enough info for them, so no need worry. Furthermore, they need to ensure your bank account is correct to transfer and start their scam.

With only the two info, they can only harass you. It will be easier for you as a victim. Just block the unknown calls. Usually the harassment escalate to harass your office and NOK. That can stress victims out.

So don't worry, they need more than IC and Driving License to start scamming you. The taxi driver can't do much to misuse your personal info.

LS require a whole range of your personal info to start the "contract loan".

Don't need to be paranoid. Relax.

this is illegal, loan shark. Real moneylenders not allowed to watsapp/msg their service or their license gantong.

Loan shark modus operandi is not to lend you money and earn your interest. They make money by harassment and blackmail and if you fear them, they will bleed you for every single cent you or your friends/relative has (you borrow from friends to pay LS). they bluff you by posting these long repayment instalment terms. Then when you give them all your particulars, inc. your sensitive personal info and the info of your family, they say $500 as trial and pay back next week $600 or else every week $100. if u no want to take the loan, also must pay penalty (some ridiculous amount like $500) for wasting their time. Then after you pay them this penalty, they say never receive your money and ask you to pay again. After you pay a 2nd time, they say you pay late and must pay $1,000 as penalty. Last month Wanbao got story of a businessman kena such con and end up paying more than $8,000 within 1 night.

Remember, Loan Shark do not lend you money. They only harass you to give them money becos you have already given them you sensitive private information

They will say can approved or already approved
Then they will get all yr info like nok number and bank account. Then they will force transfer a small amount to you. Like 500 then demand u must pay them back 700 or more for 1 week as trial loan. All ********.. u will never ever ever get that 10k loan. They will keep saying u need trial loan cause to make new record la or some stupid excuses.

But Bro, if I call them now, and they cannot give me the 10k loan, I just hang my phone isn't it??? How do they harass me after that???
