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.


Sorry to hear that but indeed you have loaned from LS.

My case here is $ not yet received but asked for another 2k n comes out with nonsense reason.

I will not entertain them n let police handle this case.

1. Change number, bank account.
2. report police
3.inform neighbours, noks, company that u were scammed and get their support
4. install cctv

5. go on with your life, whatever will come will come.

if they can't feel u r reading them, half the battle is won. They need u to be fearful and hoping u will pay. If u dun show fear, they can't get their money. Splashing is not done by them but by other victims. And the punishment is jail and cane.

Ah long wants to put money into the account. Let them do it.
After spending it and poh mata, be prepared to be tio gan by the IO.

But it does not change the fact that you are the victim and when people throw money freely, the natural response is to grab first.

My bank said they will try to reverse the money to the sender(probably a victim's acct ). If they can't then police advise is to return to State or just hold it in your bank perpetually.

Have you reported on the bank account number? What police will do is instruct bank to freeze that account and of course they will also ask the account holder to go down for investigation.

I got read past posts as well. Even got one ah long posted in here. Of course people will take precaution. But what I’ve experienced was a nightmare for me also. Day and night living in fear. From a $800 loan and even I wanted to pay off, they kept deferred until I cannot substain it. Then the temptation on borrowing another to cover which was a stupid move. It only solved that week’s loan but following week I suffered

Which one ah long posting?

I will take out my chopper from kitchen n will call 999 as well

Pls take it easy. Runner is real people and might also be victim. Pls don't harm people no matter how angry or stress you might be. Let the CCTV and police do their work. Be not afraid of them, be strong and move on.

Does it help by installing Cctv? I just met with a loan scam last week and I gave them my IC and singpass as well. They then tfr me $800 and ask me to tfr them back $1600. After doing so, they requested me to tfr another $2800 for new ‘customer’ and without thinking much, I did. It only took me a while to realize that I’ve been scammed as they explained that the $2800 is for opening up active account and I have to tfr another $2800 to open up inactive account. End up I told them I’m not loaning anymore but they insist that loan was approved and I have to tfr them the balance $2800. I had signed on an agreement what should I do? Real stresses up now as they should think that I’m easy target.

Stupid enough I got scam yesterday too and I transfer them back the amount and another 600. They asked for more and threaten my family through calling my house number . I told my family about it and they are supportive . I Guess if they want to splash paint , burn or send letter to neighbours there is nothing we can do except inform police .

When they know they can’t get anything out of you they will stop . The more they think you can squeeze the more they will find you .

Anyway police say is up to us whether to fix cctv or not . But I heard if we fix cctv normally they won’t tackle us , they will tackle the neighbours . Not sure about it .

Why you even want to transfer them the money when you have enough money for yourself? It’s hard to get back your money now. They usually used this tactic to trick people.

Bro, I think you already won by having your family’s support. They send runner also need to pay them. Technically you don’t owe them anything. They just think you are easy target. So now, lodge police report. Install cctv and deactivate your social media accounts to prevent them from further threats.

I won't go to that extend to kill runner but as a mother I want to protect my children. I don't wish to guess what they will do but I hv to b prepared.

As they will act only during our slp then try his luck..
