Loan Scam

I was looking for personal loan in the internet. I came across a website lendin? bee and to input the loan amount i needed and my contact. Then, I received a Whatsapp from the person called eric and told me about the loan process and repayment plan and send me a contract related to the loan after i send over my details such as ic, bank statement and payslip. He told me to pay stamping fee 385 and admin fees 385 total 770 which I did. Then I received another invoice from different person from different number 8895908? to pay another 450 for account opening, if I never pay the loan approval will b on hold that’s when i realized that this must a scam and when to website to look for the company again there’s a page which is different and I read about the important notice regards to scam. I read and understand that company won’t ask for advanced payment before any loan approval. I immediately made a police report and call the bank to report as well. Its my stupidity to fall into this without calling the company to check and fall into their trap. Hopefully this ends here from this scammers. Lesson learnt.
