Actually I sometimes pity those runners. They wanted the easy way out to clear their loans and ended up doing all these acts to ruin their future. They get caught, sentence is heavy.

Actually I think the common fear is letting family members know. At that time, I was so ashamed. I was afraid to tell my kids. But the most heartwarming part they told me was that I worked so hard and they understand why I did it. So one sentence from them “ we stand together”. Wah that part I totally broke down.


My daughter didn't talk to me for days.
I hope will get over this soon.

Sister, it’s hard now. But when you realised the money you paid can put into better use for yourself and your family, then those Ah long can’t win this.

Have a good talk with your daughter. Explain to her why you enquired it in the first place. She will still be angry but by the right of the day, you want to provide a better life for them too.

that was spoken in the heat of the moment previously.
But fact is, victims should not be afraid or else the cycle will never end. The bug stops when we are not afraid. I think this is what we are all here to learn.
End of day, a victim turned runner is still a criminal. And they must also learn not to bow to LS pressure to be runners. That's how the law is.

After i changed number and install cctv, i wasn't afraid anymore.
If u r short of cash, always look for proper legal channels. Work harder and get by. Everyone makes mistakes and the faster u learn, the faster u can get back on track.

This one I have to agree. The more they sensed your fears, they will use it to their advantages and threaten even more. So if they scold on the phone, they can’t do anything physically. They just wanted to squeeze more money.

yes..need to instill in the mindset of all victims " NO FEAR" , brace up and move on in life..

Only worry for those who are still feeding these scammers because of fear or face factors and not seeking help..

Sister, for me. I kept vigil for nights during the first few weeks. Until I got tired and slept on one night. It was a month plus after they sent runner up to splash. That time I also standby a metal rod and also a pail of water in case they set fire. But it was splashed with black paint.

Those runners more scared of being caught. That’s why they do it in the middle of the night when people are asleep. They don’t dare to show their faces in the day

Actually I was scared and worried. Thinking how to face my neighbours. The loanshark sent letters to them as well. After they splashed, I numbed already. That time my mindset was switched off. They splashed and I pay them also no point. So I just called police and town council came and painted the wall. I could say after the splash, I’ve overcome my fears. Cos physically they can’t hurt me. My neighbours all understanding. They knew my late wife also was in bad health and that was how I got into such trouble. But end of the day, I ownself took the stupid step by thinking I can depend on them to help me to solve my temporary problems.

The town council will re-paint for us?
