Can you ignore their calls at office? They are using this tactic as communication because they can get you in office.

Install CCTV at home. Call 999 everytime a suspicious person loiter at your flat. That is your only defence. Police will arrive within minutes and catch suspect if possible.

Report ALL threats to I/O. Screenshots of whatsapp, sms. Report phone numbers of the harassment. They need as much evidence to build a case. this includes accounts you transfer money to.

If they splash paint or lock gate. Call 999 and let SPF handle.

LS is calling the hotline. Even if i dont owe them anything they will still harrass?

Even if you diligently pay them, from the experience of others here, they will make excuses to milk more from you.

The idea here is don't pay. My office uses a PABX system. They block those numbers.You could show police report to your office to stop/block those numbers.

I dont think a runner will risked 3 hours knocking on your door. Perhaps he was scammed and asked to go over your place.


The guy got scammed. He was there to collect free stuffs as advertised on fb and carousell. He came again earlier to apoligize.

Anyone experience runners stalk and confront victims?

I guess it will be bad if victims are skilled in self-defence.

Anyway, any victims reading this, don't ever be a runner or open account for these UMLs as you not only have to face the loansharks but the law.

Your future will be bleak if you are caught by the law.

Remember this.

Caning is no joke.
See the below video from Youtube.
Just report to Police and let the Police handle the loan shark.
Must trust our SPF.

What action will the police take? I’ve already filed a online police report as well as went down to the station about a week ago. However, still getting harassed or going down to my unit.

Keep providing info to SPF. Email your I/O a detailed info eg CCTV footage, phone numbers and screenshot of WhatsApp messages.

Everytime they send runners, call 999. This, IMHO, is effective as it could lead to the arrest of runners and deprieve these UML of manpower.Realistically how many runners you think they can recruit if always these runners get arrested. How many bank account they can open fast enough if we report faster.

You could post the image and caning clip to them posted by delceer if you still get contact by them but best is lose all contacts with them.

Anyway we shouldn't discuss what SPF will do next as it removes the element of surprise.

Trust our SPF.

I think family and friends support are important. It’s good that you have understanding colleagues. Sometimes people feared that they will be scolded for what they did. But they will come realise that telling the truth beats living in the dark. More people would offer help and advices.

It's a Police case. Investigation is on going and no way I can or will return the money. To pay to the UML means I'm an accomplice. The situation now is not to communicate or transfer money. If they come and harass just call 999 and hope get caught by Police.

Communication-wise, already did what is necessary. Mine,NOK and Company have block and will continue to block any form of communications.

Without fear of feeling ashamed, my neighbors has been alerted too.

The money, I never touch and bank is escalating to return of the money or do something, I don't know.

Personally, I'm touch by family, friends and my company who have been very understanding.
My Co even offered counselling for the trauma I'm suffering. My friends offering to whack these UMLs if they ever catch. Family offer to stay at their place. So touched.

Anyway must not be scared of them. They feed on fear, that's what I learnt so far.

This is Singapore....

Hi,

Ive been reading this thread from page 1.
Same thing for me. Unwillingly became a debtor. Enquired for a pay day loan to pay my school fees end up i gotten a weekly loan instead from a few as i enquired all at the same day.

Couldnt approach the bank as i still have outstanding loan which im still paying off.

I just lost my job, my gf. My family gave up on me. My house got splashed just 2 hours ago. Second incident.

My house is empty as my family dont stay there, all of us are staying with my eldest sibling. I just got thrown out of the house two days ago. So im the only staying at my billing address that the ahlong have.

I tried clearing the loan end up paid more than the amount they transferred. Managed to clear off 3 of them good thing is they didnt disturb me after that.

Total i have 17 from different guys. Im not ashame to say it. Just dont want anyone to be like me.

Ranging from 300-2k. I paid them deferment on a daily basis till i have to walk to my office as i dont have money for work or makan.

So far my bank account been frozen due to the deferment payments as spf suspected i was one of the runners. Waiting for it to be unfrozen which the io says will take one month. Advised not to take up jobs or payment for ahlong.

Ive been cleared of the charges as ive provided details of every transaction made to them. So ive been instructed to stop paying and ignore them.

Imagine paying 1k plus everyday for deferment fees. I did up an excel file listing down the names and amount to clear.

Managed to close off some of them which mentioned that they are looking for long term business. So far the only one that splashed paint was the one i need to repay 2k. The rest just vulgarities and voice notes. Some offered me a job which i declined.

Every day i sit outside my house just in case these ppl come to harass. Now im cleaning the fresh paint on the floor and door and gate at this hour.

For those experiencing the same, be strong. This is just a phase. It will pass. I dont have access to my funds or last salary due to the account frozen.

I havent eaten a proper meal in 3days. Been surviving on water.

You need some serious help. Be not afraid. STOP PAYING!!!!!

All the info you need are here. PM if clueless.

Be vigilant. If you see anybody suspicious or you are being harrassed in any way or you feel unsafe in any way, CALL 999.

Put all CCTVs in place or use the public ones.

saw money lenders at my neighbours house doing their job. They were quite considerate and professional honestly. No loud shouting or scolding, every 10 min knock nicely and ask for payment. Even when neighbour said his deadbeat husband is dead, they politely give a stoic pls show death cert and I will leave :s13:

Well placed video cam on chest for transparency. good job!

I don’t think licensed one dare to try anything funny. If you negotiate with them, it would work. If no money, really means no money. I used to face same problem with LML, if you talk to them, they will work out repayment scheme. Ever since that incident, I don’t dare to take any more loan. It’s more than I could bear.

Loansharks are all desperate for money. You don’t need to be afraid of them. Inform your boss that you have been scammed and they will understand.

Yes.
Loan shark can't do anything to harm people in Singapore.
Those few foreigners posted here may contact your local country police if loan shark harass your family in your country.
All the advices here may not applicable onto foreign countries loan shark harassment.
Loan Shark in other countries are different from Singapore one.
Singapore just can shout over the phone.

Cctv alone won’t help all but it will still work. My unit was splashed last time and runner caught within 2 weeks. Throughout the whole harassment period, they sent me videos of burning door and photos of my family which they took it from Facebook and harassed my friends. I had to deactivate my account.

But more importantly, must really have a strong mental mind, to tahan all these and not fear them. I now think about how stupid I was by paying them because I was scared of them harassing. But the truth is once they splashed, I totally heck care about my fears. Embarrassment won’t save me anyway. But I still able to spend my own salary and pay for bills instead of feeding those motherF**kers.
