Primary school teacher hounded by loan shark

The teacher, who took a RM10,000 loan, claimed she had been told to make monthly repayments of RM1,200 for 38 months.

KUANTAN: A 39-year-old female school teacher, who borrowed money from a loan shark two years ago, found printed material bearing her picture, accompanied by humiliating words, displayed in an area near her school yesterday.

According to Pahang police head of commercial crime Mohd Wazir Mohd Yusof, the teacher at a government primary school had borrowed RM10,000 from the loan shark in December 2017, and had signed a blank agreement.

In her report lodged yesterday at the Jaya Gading police station, the teacher said she had been disturbed since April this year by the loan shark.

She said the loan shark contacted her at school and at home one month after she cancelled her ATM card, which she had given to him in January last year to make repayments.

The teacher made the cancellation after repaying RM18,000, Mohd Wazir told reporters.

She also claimed that she had only received RM8,600 from the RM10,000 borrowed because the balance had been retained for “legal and processing” fees, and that she had been required to make monthly repayments of RM1,200 for 38 months.
