A STOMPer received $400 from a person and was forced to pay back that amount along with interest, over a three-week period. When the cycle was repeated again after that, the STOMPer made a police report which resulted in paint splashed over his neighbour's door.
The STOMPer wrote:
"On the 5th of February 2012, I received a text message from an unknown person, known as LEMON, stating that he has transferred me $400.
"I checked and discovered that he has transferred the money without my consent.
"I remembered that I had lost my IC on August 2011. As such, I called him and explained that I did not request for the loan. However, he insisted I settle it by paying him $170 over 3 weeks.
"Worried that he might hurt my family, I made payment to his account at 8.30pm on the 5th of February itself but he told me that was a late payment and was 'not counted' as I was supposed to have transferred it by 8.00pm.
"On the 12th of February, I made payment, as he requested, and again on the 19th of February.
"On the 24th of February, he messaged me, saying that his boss wants him to transfer another $400 to me and that I'd have to pay him another cycle of $170 for three weeks.
"I didn't reply him as I felt the issue was never going to end.
"Two days later, on the 26th of February, he messaged me, asking me to pay up but I couldn't reply as my phone's battery died on me.
"He then mentioned that if I didn't pay up, he'll look for my father to carry on with the loan, even stating out my father's full name.
"I was puzzled as to how he knew my father's name as I can't think of anyone who I'd given my account number to, and no one in my family who had any dealings with unlicensed money lender or dispute with anyone.
"I decided to made a police report then, but they threatened me and even splashed paint over my neighbour's door and scribbled the name Lemon and a contact number together with my name and unit number.
"This issue has cause disturbance to our neighbours.
"I urge anyone, who see any suspicious character loitering around Sengkang Central, to report them to the police.
"My family and I do not want any innocent party to get hurt. Thank you."
