Loan Shark

Hi guys, last month,my dad received a call from overseas saying that he owes the loan shark 20k but we didn't even loan any money from them. so my dad thought that it was a prank call.
Just yesterday, the loan shark splashed paint on 2 of my neighbour's house and vandalised the walls.. We called the police and they took a report. We did not even borrow any money from the loan shark but they know my dad's name and contact number.. Will the police do anything about it?

I believe you did the right thing to make a police report.

I believe the police will step up monitoring your area and it would be best if neighbours band together to 'fight' against loan sharks.

mistaken identity. probably someone with the same name? or someone used ur dad's particulars to borrow money from loan sharks?but if only the loan sharks could seek clarification about this....

Re: Loan Shark

I doubt the police would do anything.... The loan shark had my dad's name, IC number, our address and his phone number. I questioned my dad wheather did he lost or lend his IC to anyone, he didn't.. The loan shark claim that he is the guarantor, the person who borrow the money wasn't my dad's friend or anyone we knew. i feel bad for my neighbours...

Re: Loan Shark

i started thinking about it. assuming that the paint was splashed these few days, called from last month, the person who borrowed money during july-august. During that period, my dad recontract phone at starhub. But i don't think the person would be so dumb to use it immediatly. Can we borrow money from loan shark who a photocopied IC??

Re: Loan Shark

oh my... the loan shark did mentioned who was the one who took up the loan. but the name is not my dad's friend at all. judging from the name, i think he is middle-aged 30 -40+ years old. the loan shark is dumbass to allow people to borrow money without actual IC!

I believe the police should start investigating StarHub employee (the person dealing with the re-contract), based on what you had described.

Yes, and all these information might help the police.

I believe it's added information. It might be an useful lead.

I think it is more like what can they do... Even if they arrested the runners, the boss will still get away before the police gets to them...
