Hi I came across your reply. Recently I inquire to borrow money from a moneylender advertising his services by sms. My fault is I have send all my details to him, NRIC, bank account. In the end I change my mind and don't want to borrow but he said he already transfer 400., so I must pay 600 by the following week. Following week he ask me to defer payment and pay 200 only., but I want to clear so I paid 600. He started threatening and send some image of loan shark graffiti and threaten to burn my house if I don't pay him another 600. I have lodged a police report and have no intention of paying him again. The police suggest to change my phone number and don't reply again to this ah long.

When receiving this kind of sms. First thing to do is launch a police report.

I go borrow $100k from 10 ah long, then I can follow the above highlighted step or not ? Then I will become instant millionaire without strike TOTO. Let the police catch all the ah long for harassing me. Can ? :s11::s11::s11:


The police might install CCTV at the premises of the victim under harassment. At most, they can only catch those runners. Owing $ to the ah longs, one will live in constant fear....

Police can catch, but loansharking does not receive as serious a sentence as rape or armed robbery... Which means that after a few years, the 10 loansharks will roam free and worse for u if they know/ suspect that it was u who called the police because you intended NOT to repay in the first place. Then good luck to u lor I guess.

Another step for consideration on top of reporting to police.

Register your numbers (mobile and home) under the DNC registry for both calls and text.

Though the chance of really killing them is small, as long as they are able to trace down one person it could result in a potentially large fine for them $10k times number of mobile numbers they illegally sent marketing messages to.

Since they usually don't send to just one person, assuming they sent to 200 numbers, that works out to be $2,000,000 fine and potentially jail too.

Of cos with loan sharks probably buying SIM cards from foreign workers, it's hard to really track them, but all it takes is one productive investigation and a desirable result may be realized.

My thoughts and I hope they're useful.

I applied for a bank loan, a week later a lady called to say that my loan application for 10k has been approved but she had to verify my particulars and that her finance department will call me. 2 days later a guy called me to say that he is tasked to look into my loan application and that he need to verify my particulars and being excited I gave him all the info. The next day he transferred 500 to me and say that the bank has to confirm my payment ability on defered method before they can approve my 10k loan. Since then I've paid almost 3500 and when I question him on my payment he started to get aggressive and threatened me. Only then I realized that I had inadvertently get entangled with loan shark. When I called the bank I was told that no such application was submitted. What can I do now? Getting very stressed that I could get my self in such a situation. Help please, any advice?

Pls go to the police posts/station to make a report/ consult your MP to see what to do. It is their job to keep crime (loansharking, gangsterism, corrupt bankers in cahoots w loansharks)in Singapore low... Otherwise, many others will fall prey to such heinous criminality just like u.

Loanshark Harrasment

Hi All,

Recently i made a huge mistake of sending my details to a loanshark thinking they are licensed moneylenders, turned out they werent. I had to pay $00 in total when they transfer me $400, repor to the police, they seized the money yet SPF is useless because they are just maybe dumb, but I understood I made a mistake, the loanshark guys were nice tho BUT this happens.
I am working overseas now, so he keeps texting me to support him but I ignored and said I dont need it tho I do need money, once bitten twice shy, and then he just texted me out of the blue, he transferred an amount of $300 to my account and ask em pay $400, boy i was so mad and sent him multiple vulga messages, so i realized he was nice, I decided to pay $400, and will close my bank account, and all that, What do u guys think? I know they are just behind the screens, but I am just afraid they will do something to my house. Let me know your thoughts. Thanks!
