My friend wanted to loan SGD 10,000 from Cash Direct for her father’s treatment for tuberculosis as he has been in the hospital for quite a Long time.
My friend had borrowed $140 initially for me for an admin fee. I definitely lent her as she was in need. However she ended up asking for more as the one she was in contact told her that there should be also paying an insurance fee. I felt it was very fishy but I called my friend and she was crying and was in dire need. She also sent me their conversations and the documents needing another extra $700.
As reluctant as I was to lend my friend the money. I had to help her out fully knowing that I trust her. To cut things short. They said they have made a mistake on the paperwork and she did not receive the payment and will have to pay an extra $500 to cancel the “loan”.
Fully knowing that it has been a scam. She has reported the case to the police. I may have lost $1000 right now through lending her, but more importantly, my friend still requires the money for her father’s treatment and has nobody to go to.
It will take along while before I even get my money or even to have the “money lender” to fulfil their end even with the police’s help.
Any amount of help will be greatly appreciated. This is just not about my money but also my friend’s father.
Thank you in advance.
