Yea i think they dont have my account number which they keep asking me for it. What i worry is they just transfer the cash to my account and said that i have borrowed the money and they can just come after for it. But anyway, i went to file a police report already, dont know if that helps.

Ic, number and address they have. But no bank account number i guess? possible that the lm pass the info to them. Anyway stand firm and ignore the ls. If you did not take money from them, unlikely they will spend time or money to harrass you. And from their action now, you will know they will let you go after you take loan from them

Dont give them your account or read their msg at all. As for making police report, that is the correct procedure.

Yes, they can actually do what you just mentioned. Don't release any personal details at all!

Bro KLeong

You are very right. Thanks your advice.

THEY WILL NEVER GIVE THIS KIND OF LOAN ( proper monthly payment loan) via sms. GOT TO VISIT THEIR OFFICE FOR PROPER LOAN APPLICATION.

You quote:
Would like to highlight a few things

1) lml is not allowed to advertise.
2) all the monthly installment plans are tricks for ppl to reply to their advertisement. Uml and lml will never give this kind of loans.
3) no legal loan company will ask for your singpass, ic or bank account over the phone. Even at lml office, they will ask you to key in the password for your singpass. They wont ask for it.
4) all lml will need you to go down to their office to sign documents before they can approve your loan or disperse the money.

If you see them do any of the above, 99% they are LOANSHARKS.

These are not just loan sharks, they are LOAN SCAMS! They are really terrorists in our local turf.

Hi...
I have the similiar suitation with u. So what happen in the end? Care to share?

Classic case. You owe them, you pay, they continue to threaten and harass you for more and more and more money.

Never pay, report police, do the necessary. PM if clueless.

As long as you don't release your bank account and don't receive any money, you should be safe. They could still come up with creative ways to trick you but you are in a better position than many of the past victims here.

You can see their entire mode of operation here - https://youtu.be/xPiz0UcMVTA

Diff to settle like? Lml r binded by regulation.
If they too much, can get Mlaw to intervene?
Eg 3.5k chuck up to 26k?
Yet to call them cause they holding on my old number.
Most they send demand letter but few send their collector but no one at home.
Kid n wife bunk at in law place.

Lml more difficult to settle

Hi All.

One of LS just ws me asking for a date. No threats from them yet. I am still firm and staying strong not to give in to them. But reading the previous post, I am scared that those LML might have linked to LS as well. Haiyaa.

My guess is that LML and UML could well be linked. Stand firm.

Work on the assumption that they could come. Watch your surroundings if it is properly watched by CCTV. If they ever hit, activate police rightaway. With CCTV watching, there is no way they can run. Know also that the harassing runner could well be a victim, getting them arrested will actually save them. The penalties for harassment is very very heavy.

Mine too. My LS send me a list of all my neighbours name and address. I just ignore him. He send me about a week ago and nothing happened.

Just be vigilant though. I got 2 LS. The one who send me the list of neighbours till now quiet since a week ago. The other one just texted me asking me for a date this afternoon.

Still ignoring them and standing firm for my rights. I know its easier said than done but you gotta be strong. Many here are survivors far worst than what we went through.
Take their advise and get ready for a fight. Hopefully things will get better for everyone here.
