I hope by now you have went to the police.
Please go report to the police if you haven't done so.
Then go close your bank account (POSB/DBS) can do so online takes only a few minutes.
Its going to be bit troublesome to reorganise any GIRO and payroll but it's better than to let the scammers use your account then get frozen by the authorities.
Inform your NOK and bosses about being scammed. Face it don't hide it, no point one.
Install Cctv first then go TC to apply for permit. I wrote in to my MP about expediting my request and was done within 3 days.
Install call blocker on your phone and just delete, Block, report all of their WhatsApp numbers, after a while they will run out of numbers to call you.
Best if you can, change number.
Lastly, don't scare yourself, these scammers are hiding in Malaysia. They cannot do much apart from sending you threatening messages, send you videos of house kena splash paint and burned which they keep mass sending to many people they want to scare.
Their operations are small time and they are not persistent people.
If worse case they come to your house, take video and scare you, hopefully your camera is in place can capture and call 999 then inform your IO.
That was how the stupid young runner who came video my door was caught almost within the hour.
MOST IMPORTANTLY STOP PAYING THEM.
Paying them means emboldening them and funding their kachang puteh operation.
Do all the above, sleep well, eat well, Netflix and chill.
Hi thanks for all the advice. Yesterday I have told him that no matter what was his reason, last week was my last deferment. I can't keep waiting for him to come back and settle. There isn't any reply from him since yesterday. I will report to police if he still asking for deferment again.
