At details section just type " Received unsolicitate SMS for loan. Suspect UML activities".

Take screenshot, then go next and attached sms screenshot.

Done.

SMS is the UML M.O, it will be my M.O and I will not relent and continue to report until the SPF have a "3D" picture of the phone network.

UML mental f**k me, I mental f**k them.

I PMed you. If is harassment, file reports with all the info for official records.

@Bro Fearless

Be it that MF is from Sg or Msia, i believe he will get caught up with the law. SPF is taking this case quite seriously..The I/O came down yesterday also...I must say,the runner is really knn fking stupid..He din even cover his face, and din wear glove. Police oredi took back all the evidence..my cctv captured his ccb face in High definition..I will make him famous

Hope more runners will be caught. some LS don't even bother even you told them police report had been made and they challenged you instead. go challenge in front of police officers laaa instead. if want their money back, go collect from police station. haha.

I think AL may not physically own all the sim card. When we call them, it won't get through, but they know we called them.

Usually AL change numbers quite often, so those numbers may have already recycled to innocent people already.

True. My AL will informed abt their new numbers. haha..

That money is not even from the Ah Long. They are doing business without capital.
You take $500 and give back $700 in 5 days ? :s11:
They keep rolling from debtors using different type of saving account.

Quickly close that card and token . Report police . Dont become thier runners or advertising website . Not worth it . Can be charge for it . Even my IO say don't ever pay them back a single cent , cos once you pay them . The transaction is not thier account its all the debtors who cant pay them all . Once u transfer and get caught , consider money laundering . Thats what my IO say . So i rather listen . Even till now they keep asking when can pay all that . Im like a dumb **** replying to them . Really regret for this life ive made .

Please dont ever surrender anything to them . Let them splash or what . Apply for fire protection insurance at hdb or etiqa.com for information .

Good work SPF ! Even pasting of debtor note at gate is enough to warrant an arrest.

Be Warn, runner wannabe! Not worth getting jailed, fined, caned and a criminal record.

Through investigations and with the aid of images from police cameras, officers from Woodlands Police Division established the identity of the man and arrested him on 28 March 2019.

103 Arrested in Anti-Loansharking Blitz

The Police have arrested 70 men and 33 women, aged between 16 and 72, for their suspected involvement in loansharking activities in a three-day operation conducted from 25 to 27 March 2019.

Officers from the Criminal Investigation Department and seven Police land divisions conducted simultaneous raids at multiple locations island-wide, resulting in the arrests. Preliminary investigations revealed that 16 suspects are believed to have carried out Automated Teller Machine (ATM) transfers on behalf of loansharks. Six other suspects are believed to have carried out acts of loanshark harassment by splashing paint and scrawling loanshark-related graffiti on walls.

The remaining 81 suspects are believed to have opened bank accounts and given away their ATM cards and Personal Identification Numbers to loansharks to facilitate their unlicensed moneylending businesses. Investigations against all the suspects are ongoing.

Opening a bank account, distributing pamphlets, acting as a look-out, being a runner or acting as a harasser for loansharks are criminal activities that have serious consequences, such as a hefty fine, jail term and even caning. The Police will take tough enforcement action against those involved in the loansharking business, regardless of their roles, and they will face the full brunt of the law.

Under the Moneylenders’ Act (Revised Edition 2010), when a bank account or ATM card of any person is used to facilitate moneylending by an unlicensed moneylender, that person is presumed to have assisted in the business of unlicensed moneylending.

• First-time offenders found guilty of carrying on or assisting in a business of unlicensed moneylending may be fined between $30,000 and $300,000, be imprisoned for a term of up to four years and shall also be liable to be punished with caning of up to six strokes.

• First-time offenders found guilty of acting on behalf of an unlicensed moneylender, committing or attempting to commit any acts of harassment shall be punished with imprisonment for a term of up to five years, a fine of between $5,000 and $50,000, and shall also be liable to be punished with caning between three and six strokes.

Loansharks are increasingly sending unsolicited loan advertisements via text messages or online platforms. Members of the public are reminded not to reply or respond to such advertisements, and report the number as spam. The public can call the Police at ‘999’ or the X-Ah Long hotline at 1800-924-5664 if they suspect or know of anyone who could be involved in loansharking activities.

As long as victims report, SPF will deal with them. Trust the SPF. Don't pay and report.

I got 7 such SMS just yesterday alone and already 1 SMS today. Seems they are trying hard. One group gets shutdown, another will emerge. If would-be victims see this thread early, more will report and the quicker another "cell" can be shutdown.

As it usually starts with such SMS.Must nip the problem in the bud.

I say the SPF, Govt and telcos need to collaborate to stop UMLs adverts soon.I can only suggest these numbers be suspended for investigations after being flagged. Report thru i-witness portal is one way.

I hope none who are victims here are those arrested recently. If they are, I'm NOT sorry for them, paying dues for crimes is worst than paying the UMLs.

I'm not surprise the narrative of this documentary seems to sensationalise UML harassments by combining cases,video clips and images in Malaysia and Singapore to strike fear.

But fear not, if victims man up and refuse to obey or pay the UMLs, stop any form of contacts and importantly Report to Police, soon the harassment will end.

In Singapore, house burning is only scorch main door. Our HDB main door is usually fire-rated.

Importantly, don't surrender and become a runner.
