Update: One of the Ah Longs have used my old WhatsApp display pic as his new photo. Got an update from my friend who informed me about this. These AL all work in syndicates one, the one who used my photo wasn't the one who I owed any money to. Just be aware of this when you decide to run AL, your photos may be used - so don't use photos showing your face fully or showing your family members as well. Change it to something more generic and they won't be able to use it against you.

The calls have begun flooding

Block, and if you want some peace, turn on do not disturb mode on your phone so unknown number calls won't get through. You also won't get other calls from legit callers, but that one at least you can call back when you do see it. Best of luck, the initial phase is the toughest, the scariest and the most stressful period. You'll get through this as many of us have.

Was yours over already?

Doubt it. It is never really "over" with these people because they will come and try their luck after some time. I'm expecting we'll receive some random calls again in future or more love letters and other types of physical harassment.

Report to police.
The interest is much higher than the Bank.

This type of AL earn good money. Business without any capital.
They can use the bank credit line transfer money to you then ask you pay back extra $400.
The bank not even charge $400 for 3 days interest credit line transfer.
The AL use the money pay back the bank and get the profit.

Hi Guys, I was going through the posts over the past few days.. Would like to mention that i am someone going through similar situations currently...

The harassment started last week with the usual threats and videos but stopped for awhile.
It resumed yesterday when my office was called and i managed to speak to my boss regarding what happened and showed them the Police Report made on Saturday.
Its still a mental torture as i dunno what to expect next.
However, an advice given to me was, to track down all the times they call you from their Private Number... Let them keep calling, u talk for a while and hang up. Let them call a few more times, before you pick up again. Then give the police the details, i.e. 26 Private number calls from 1 pm - 1.40 pm to my number (812******).
With this, they will be able to pin point the number / location with the help of the telcos.

Just tot it may help.

This is day 4 for me.
And im not gonna give in to their demands.

Your amount is huge. My advise pay or no pay, the harassment will be jialat. Might as well block their numbers, close the account, invest the money in CCTV at Sim Lim Square, report police.

Buy popcorn and get ready for some horror movie marathon

That's true....they've asked me before why I didn't display any pic....thank god I didn't put up any personal pic before....do check your other apps as well....remove all personal display pics.

1 AL.

But was cleared sometime back.

Sometime back auto deposit into my acct without my knowledge. Then a week later he called and said that i took a loan and was due that day. When i said i did not take any loan, he sent me a receipt of the deposit.

And indeed he did.
So i asked how much to clear, he said 600 for a 400 loan. or 150 to defer. I just said id clear and went on to trf the 600.
After trf, he replied :ACCT JAM ACCT JAM! DONT TRF FIRST."
But ialready did.
He then told me to get the bank to undo the trf and tht he will give me another acct for me to trf another 600.
I went to the bank to do so but cudnt.
He then said he will let me defer for a week for 150 then clear the next week at 600.
I was fooled time and time again.
In total i trf 1400 for a measly 400 tht i didnt even ask for.

Then went quiet for a while, last week claim tht there is a balance of 400. And if delay the interest will accumulate.

Told him to meet me personally to get it.
And thts how it all started....
