    Default I got a threatening letter from Triade!

    Hi all,

    After my strange black liquid 'thingy', I received another scare: a letter from a moneylender asking to repay back money I never borrowed. It was directed at the previous tenant of the apartment I am in.............what should I do other than locking my door with 5 locks, and only going out during the day?

    I have heard the triades overhere here are 'famous'?

    I have a friend here in Singapore who has this same problem. Only thing, there ain't no letter. Just paint. What they did was stick the previous owner's new address on the gate and hope they will go splash at the new place instead. Also they installed a pinhole camera just in case those dudes come splashing again.

    you should evacuate immediately all your precious Leica, Contax, Nikon S, SP etc etc in case they really broke in your house.

    this incident serves us a warning, the next time bfore we moved in a house (rented or not), it pays to visit your would-be neighbours to learn a little bit more about the previous tenants.

    god bless HS in difficult times...

    hmm ... is that a good way to settle such problems? using triad against triad? i have never been to HK, so i don't know how the society operates there.

    Oh no, bad move man.

    Next time they will want you to do something for them, it could be involving yourself with something illegal and you are putting yourself and your family into a predicament... reject cannot accept also cannot.

    no triad clashes here since we amended the law for indefinite detention. the original triad members have retired or 'closed mountains'.

    only have very young 'gangs' clashes over minor incidents like girls, staring incidents, etc.

    1) Call Police.
    2) Buy insurance for house.

    This will solve your problem.

    Tell the triade you've no money to pay them. But they can sell your body.

    Uncle,

    Another way to avoid the triade is to disguise as a woman when you go out. Put on a shawl over your head and a sunglasses too. So far no triade kaki has harmed any woman.

    You are okay? If I don't hear from you in this forum for another week, I'll personally go to Tsim Sha Tsui police station to lodge a report.

    Regards.

    singapore still does have some "active" triads in singapore. terrorising poor students. esp those nerd looking students.

    i used to be one, and still one nerd.

    seriously, those who tries to threaten me, i would have condemn him/her and his/her entire family. singapore still has such people around. so i can say. our country. not 100% safe, and not 100% fool proof.
