Can share what is the interest rate ?
Higher than those credit card/ ready credit 24% ?
Now bank got balance transfer.
Why don't you borrow from bank ?

Advertised interest rate is 12% per year.

But usually they will ask to do a small loan to test the payment record first. Something like loan 700, pay back 1000 in a week. That 300 is the "interest/defer fee", but they will only keep collecting the interest by giving 101 excuses why cannot clear the loan (no account to transfer, worker sick, never indicate in system, never inform 1 day before etc etc). From there, for the interest to snowball because loan never actually clears.

Also, I'm sure most people who borrow from ah longs probably don't have a good credit rating to borrow from the banks. If not why they go this route?

Everyone la...

They won't send everyone in your block. They at most only send 2 or 3 units around your level. Heng suay some random units. If your neighbors kind enough to take notice, they will come ask u about it. If they don't, chances are AL only send mail to your unit but claim he send to everyone

Wondering what is their next step? Call NoK? Call office? Grafitti? Paint?

Depends. Usually NOK first. I would say paint and graffiti rare now cos cameras are everywhere and debtors/runners know the consequence of vandalism. Maybe via mail?

The threatening will last longer now cos they just call/WhatsApp/SMS. So they are just keyboard warriors. Compared to 2009 when my family was being harrassed, the AL need to pay runners to splash paint/graffiti. If we don't pay, then it doesn't make sense for AL to keep paying runners to harrass us.

But still just stay vigilant

Don't pay. Just block the numbers. Anything report police. The consequence of this is u have to tahan the ordeal next. Tahan until they give up

You went to their office to settle right ?
How come you settle the payment 5 days early and they still demand money ?
This is scam leh. Legal money lender can do that ?
