Here's an update: when this scam happened to me it was in 2017. After i followed the police advice (i.e. change number, close account) everything was quiet.

So imagine to my surprise when at 1400hrs today i received a whatsapp message with a video of a house gate burning with an O$P$ message next to it.

Luckily there is an npc nearby so i went to make a report.

Sigh ... when will this **** end? Even after two years, this thing is back to bother me. Have to stay strong and alert. My parents are old, if those shits do anything to my home, i'll do anything to protect my home and family


Don't do anything stupid.
Who ask you take people money ?
Lucky you are staying in Singapore and not at other country.
Not bad, change one time got peaceful life for 2 years.
Change number again.;)

Oh no ... i didn't take their money ... after what happened in 2017, im really careful when i see facebook or instagram ads on borrowing money ...

Now if i need cash i go to a credit cooperative for a loan. rates are better than a bank and they genuinely want to help their members.

Did they attention the Whatsapp msg to you or it’s directed to you? It could be a mis-send also.

I ever receive ic photo of someone I don’t know.

Then try not to bother to much. Could be previous owner of your number or whatever.

Good that you reported. All the best!

I'm actually going to assume the worst i.e. they will send runners to my home.

I keep asking the police, you are confident that this is a scam? what happens if this escalates? nobody can answer.

anyway, i wrote in to my mp again for help and have called the previous io in charge of my case to update him

Didn't see these story until now, this is a typical case of UML, full of lies. Pls don't fall for them or PAY THEM.

http://theindependent.sg/poor-singa...ender-and-gets-scammed-of-hefty-7500-instead/

And another case of "forced loan" - DO NOT BE AFRAID OF THESE JOKERS!

And if LML dare to harass you like this case, the police is also waiting for them.

Good to be prepared but not paranoid.

Nobody can tell you for sure what is going to happen next, just be vigilant.

Hope that all goes well for you.

Is there a way to block them not directly whatsapp, but to report to whatsapp their number to whatsapp email or something? can someone advise here, many thanks. As mind have been breaking down on me and my relationship with my wife is getting from bad to worse.

At this point in time there is no way to prevent others from adding u to their whatsapp but whatsapp have already announced of such function. Just wait for updates in a couple of weeks to months.

For the time being just block and report. Whatsapp usually will permanently ban the number using the app.

So keep reporting and block. Let's how many thousand simcards these LS can buy.

Bro hear your voice is enough.
This scam virus is deadly.
People who fall into scam may do stupid things out of fear by lending their account.

We can sense some panic like hell .
And its hell.
That is why we must talk kock here.

2 years later, out of the blue you received the video? Were you using the same number as 2 years ago? During the harassment period did they do anything to your home? This is f*cking messup sia. If we are not strong enough, they will give us a life long trauma. I really pray and hope all is well for you after this.
