Loan Scam
Recently I texted someone on WhatsApp for a $5000 loan. They told that they were from "Golden licensed moneylender". I provided pictures of the front and back of my I/C, CPF, statement and bank account details for approval but she went quiet shortly after that. The same day, I received a fund transfer of $200 from an unknown person.

The next day I received a text from a person by the name of Sam Wong, 93710456 hp number, saying that I will need to return back $350 as they have given me the $200, which I didn't even asked for. Had a little exchange of words over WhatsApp and told him that I won't pay anything more than the $200 he had transferred to me. But he ignore and say that he will provide an account number next week for me to transfer the money.. So I insisted that the $200 would not be used and I would return it back to him as I didn't not even ask for the $200. he threatened me with videos and picture of ah longs burning and harassing people. I've made a police report with regards to this. I am still waiting for the stupid ah long (Sam Wong) to provide me  with the account number so that I could return his $200. I blocked his number and all unknown.
