Landlord, loan sharks harrassing tenants

Posted by jtsmyth8 on June 6, 2008

There are two posters pasted outside this four-room flat.

The one on the left, written in Mandarin, is addressed to ‘Mr Ah Long’, telling the loan shark that he has gone after the wrong guy.

The other is in English and is for the occupant’s landlord, condemning him for allegedly borrowing money from loan sharks.

The loan shark and the landlord have been allegedly making life miserable for the Peh family, who rented the flat on the third storey of Block 681, Choa Chu Kang Crescent, seven months ago.

Mr Peh Teck Seng, 51, a transport supplier, said the family of four are renting a flat as they could not get a bank loan to buy one.

Mr Peh, who lives with his wife and two adult children, said he had put up the posters ‘in a bid to stop the harassment by the loan sharks’.

It all began barely a week after the family moved into the flat last November. (story)
