Woman Tricked 40 Loan Sharks
I can’t help thinking, if all this are planned by the woman well before hand. Seriously, people who took loans from loan sharks should be punished.
KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 2 (Bernama) — On the pretext of settling her massive debts with 40 ‘ah longs’ (loan sharks), a woman lured them into a police dragnet.
Upon arriving at the 42-year-old woman’s office at separate times in Sungai Besi yesterday, she politely asked the ‘ah longs’ to wait at the second floor of her office to enable her to pay them their dues.
The ‘ah longs’ did as requested — and walked straight into the long arm of the law.
In the six-hour operation, a team of policemen from the Bukit Aman Commercial Crime Department arrested the suspects.
Seized from the 40 loan sharks were bank books and automated teller machine cards, among others.
Today, the police obtained a three-day remand from a magistrate’s court to detain the suspects aged between 25 and 42 to facilitate investigations.
The 40 ‘ah longs’ will be held at the Brickfields police headquarters.
A police officer told Bernama that the woman, who is involved in the printing business, had taken loans of between RM5,000 and RM10,000 from each of the loan shark.
He said the woman had taken the loans to help sustain her business.
“However, when she was constantly harrassed by the loan sharks, the woman filed several police reports against them.
“Following our advice to trap the illegal financiers, she contacted them on the pretex of settling all her debts,” said the police officer.
He said that more loan sharks were expected to be nabbed from the Sungai Besi area.
