Personal info shared among moneylenders

Personal info shared among moneylenders

Of late, I have been receiving several SMSes offering loans to me. I checked with the Insolvency & Public Trustee's Office, which suspected these messages were from unlicensed moneylenders.

I have also received calls (sometimes with "no caller ID") from moneylenders who knew my name, which left me wondering what other personal details they knew.

I hope the police and the relevant authorities can tackle this issue as I do not feel safe with my personal details being shared among unlicensed moneylenders.
