Guys. Need some advise. Apparently my friend wanted to loan from some LS. She is very much aware they were not legal ones. The problem is she is currently working as a freelance so no CPF contribution. The LS told her they cannot loan her as there were no concrete proof that she is working.
Idk what is their conversation exactly but they asked for her nudes and promise to pay her $800. Which she send over to them cause she claimed she was desperate in need of money. Now the problem is, they did not transfer her any money. They blocked her from whatsapp and 1 week later threatened to post her nudes and IC on social media.

Already told her to make a police report and all. She said she will do it tmr. So now do you guys really think they will post her photos especially when they did not transfer her any money?

Thank you in advanced.

Its a form of cyber-extortion scams. Actually if you visit this page, you will see all the varieties.

Not much she can do, just report and just bear with it until it goes away.

This case is more of A cyber extortion scam... Where the assumed LS ask for nudes... But didn't gave out the loan as agreed... Right now they threaten to release the nudes unless some form of payment is made... Typical extortion case... Nothing much Yr fren can do and pray for the best.. For ladies be careful nvr send nudes to strangers regardless of whatever intention...

I also dont know whether to say she naive or just plain stupid. She still very young about 20 or 21 years old only. She was too desperate for money at that point of time so I want to scold her also no point. It already happened, she was already stressful enough. But keep on asking her to make a police report, she keep on saying she scared.

This happen to me of a existing LS I own post as a new lender n ask me do a video.
In end loan amt didnt happen n saw my video post in social media.
Report to SPF n the social media to block sender n remove post.

Sometime in desperate moment, we cant think well.

Yes... Happens to me too.
You will sometimes find LS whatsapping you offering loans.
They are all merely trying to fish information.
The best thing to do is completely ignore them and block them.

You should block them, stop making any more payments and make a police report immediately. Do this first and be mentally and emotionally prepare for what's to come. Even if you want to close account, they will give you so many excuses and only allow you to defer.

The initial part wont be easy, they will harass you, your NOK and workplace. So be inform your NOK and workplace first. I think they would appreciate the heads up.

The rest of the things of what you should do i basically the same. Read up the past post you'll get the idea. Goodluck ya! 💪

Hope you have your workplace and NOK understanding, there is no way payments can be kept up if it is a loan scam. They feed on your fear and their threats is used to scare you.

Do not pay, report all info to the police and cut contact!

Know that your data gets passed around so many more will come and offer you "help". As long as they are not licensed, they are UML. Seek your company understanding of the scam, if not possible, time to look for another job.
