It’s no secret that loan sharks, or ah longs, are aggressive people who are vicious in collecting debts. But, what if you don’t have debts with loan sharks because you backed out before borrowing any money from them?

Well, it looks like they’ll still terrorize you for reaching out to them.

According to a report by Oriental Daily, a 29-year-old Malaysian man working in Singapore has had the outside of his house burnt twice now after he had clicked on a loan application link but then backed out before confirming any loans.

Burn 1

This all started in May, when the man decided to explore some loan options by checking out the loan application link. During a press conference, the man’s wife explained that he wanted to borrow SGD 10,000 (RM34,312.65), though after reading through the terms and conditions of the loan, he backed out as he found it to be suspicious.

He later started receiving calls from a loan shark after they managed to obtain his personal details. They informed him that he needs to pay SGD 2,000 (RM6,862.53) as a processing fee to cancel the application or there would be consequences.

“The other party claimed that the handling fee could be paid in installments. Without suspecting fraud, my husband first transferred SGD 200 (RM686.25) to the other party’s designated bank account. However, after the transfer, the other party claimed that they had not received the money, so my husband refused to pay any more. No more fees,” the wife shared.

Burn 3

This allegedly led to more phone calls from the loan shark, with threats to kidnap their 2 young children. They then also set the outside of their house on fire twice, once on September 11 (Monday) and once on September 15 (Friday).

Thankfully, the both fires were successfully extinguished and no serious injuries were caused.

But what makes all of this so much more ridiculous was the fact that the loan shark then called the wife to blackmail her for SGD 3,000 (RM10,293.80) as a ‘fee’ for sending someone to set fire to their house.

Burn 2

“In addition to me being harassed by the ah long, my mother, husband, sister and mother-in-law were all implicated. I quit my job because I was worried about my own safety and my children did not go to kindergarten again,” she added.

The wife has since made 3 police reports in regards to this matter and is hoping that to use the press conference as a way to ask the loan shark to stop harassing her family.

“My husband has resigned from his job as a baker and plans to return to Malaysia to deal with this matter soon,” she explained.

We genuinely hope that their troubles come to an end soon.
