How can selling an item become a loan ?
Look like a scam to me.
Go and make a police report.
Talk to the police officer about it.

Very likely it’s a loan scammer, cos usually you can’t get thru their number with normal calls except Whatsapp calls.

Ignore them and make police report straight away. Block their numbers too.

And importantly, inform your family members

Have you made police report? If not, please do it now.

This is something new here, in terms of tactics. Am I right to say that you had transferred back the money (no more and no less than) what they had transferred back to you?

Do let your family members know that you had been scammed and they are in the loop and know how to react “if” they were to really visit you. I know you are feeling lost now but the police will be able to guide you along.

Our police treat these type of cases seriously and do keep your correspondences (SMS/Whatsapp) and show the police.

Are you Singaporean and staying in Singapore ?
If yes, then no worry.
Faster go and make police report.
Those are scammer.
They can't do anything to harm you.
They only can manipulate those naive or low IQ people only.
I believed you are not naive or low IQ people.
So no worry about them.
Trust the Singapore Police 100% and follow their instructions after you had made the police report.

So what did the police advise you to do?

If you scared they come, install CCTV. This will sort of deter the runners to do anything. Your common corridor got police CCTV?

Hi guys,

I just wanna share my story here. I have been dealing with UML since January tis year till now. I have donated around 2k to them and recently i got a force loan from them which i didnt agree with it. So i make a report and hand over the money to the police to handle it. I have been recieve msg from them to burn , lovk spray paint on my unit. But i have cctv outside my house and i welcome them. Its a scam guys. No need to be afraid of them. They can only scare u in whatapps or calls. Just be strong & ignore them. Dont ever let them feel u are fear to them. They will definitely milk you dry. Be strong. Start new life move on. Dun ever trust those scams again.

Oh yes, maybe you want to consider closing your bank account and open a new one. Don’t be in a situation of having another forced loan again.

unluckyguy,

First of all STAY CALM.

Good that you have made a Police Report.

Next, block their calls. Use apps like Call Blocker by Vlad Lee. Only allow calls in your contact list to go thru. Install this app for your parents. For the time being remove whatsapp from your hp. Use telegram instead and set security accordingly. The idea is to prevent them from able to contact you from any form of media.

Next, change bank account as advise. If they send some more report to I/O and hold on to it. Don't transfer them even 1 cent.

Next, install CCTV.

I believe you can explain to your parents that you are scammed. Show them the police report that you are not hiding anything. Your family WILL understand, I'm sure of it. We always protect our own in crisis even if they did something wrong. You will be surprise.

Be ready to dial 999, if they visit you. The runners are usually victims in trouble who are scared too.

I and the rest also panic when it happened to us during the 1st week. Gets better as days goes by. Most of these scams only virtual scare tactic, never dare face to face with you.

No victims where harm, only doors, gates and letterbox only.

Now you feel confuse,panic and afraid. Soon when you are calm and collected, confirm you will get angry.

Remember, this is Singapore. Trust in SPF.

Yes trust spf, even they come and slash paint of what they sure kena caught wan. Setting fire at door is a serious offend in Singapore, can be charge under murder which is death penalty. Culpable homicide is also liable for a heavy penalty too.
