A Malaysian woman, who only wishes to be identified as Lee, might’ve gotten herself into big trouble when she not only lent a Tinder match RM9,000, but allowed loan sharks to take photos of her nude to settle payments.
According to The Star, the 33-year-old met a guy called Kevin on Tinder three months ago. He claimed to be working in the oil and gas industry and told Lee that he needed RM9,000 to buy chemical products for his business, so she lent him the money.
They even met up in June, during which he promised to propose to Lee on his next visit at the end of the month.
It’s not known what happened after she lent the money to Kevin, but Lee lost her job and had to resort to loan sharks to pay off her outstanding debts.
“I tried to take a RM30,000 loan from two money lenders named Apple and Jessie via Facebook, and they demanded I pay processing, legal and tax fees in advance before they went ahead with the loan,” she said.
“They told me that I would go to jail if I did not make these payments.”
“That was when I went to the loan sharks and borrowed RM14,000 to settle this payment.”
This amount was on top of the RM50,000 that her own family had forked out to help her settle her debts.
However, the loan sharks soon started chasing Lee to settle her loans, but when she told them that she wasn’t able to pay them back, they came up with a negotiation.
Some time around the end of last month, one of them offered to waive off her debts and even offered to give her cash if she posed nude for him. She agreed to it and followed him to a hotel where she allowed him to take nude pictures of her.
“He took me to a hotel and took several videos and pictures of me and told me I did not need to worry about payment. He also gave me RM100 cash,” she said.
But after her “payment” was settled, she started worrying that the man would use her nude photos and videos to blackmail her.
Public Services and Complaints Department (PSCD) head Datuk Michael Chong said on Thursday (12th Sept) that he believes Lee was a victim to a love scam and that Kevin had cheated her.
“Now, she is in so much debt and we have advised her to lodge a police report on the matter.”
“We have received four similar cases this year involving losses of RM118,000,” he said, urging the public to not be so gullible.
Moral of the story, don’t lend strangers money! Especially not RM9,000!
