Retiree cries foul after car, house splashed with paint by illegal money lenders


JOHOR BARU: A retiree is crying foul after her car and house in Taman Ehsan Jaya here were splashed with red paint, believed to be by a group of illegal money lenders.

Liew Sung Mooi, 62, said she found her properties damaged when she woke up around 5am on Thursday (Oct 22), and some of the paint also damaged her neighbour’s car and house.

“They also left a note with my daughter’s name and MyKad number, saying that she owed them money.

“After checking with my daughter who works in Singapore, she told me that she did not take any loans, ” she said in a press conference called by Pasir Gudang MCA Complaints Bureau deputy chief Ang Tun Chek on Friday (Oct 23).

Liew added that her daughter seldom returns home, and even if she did owe money lenders, they should take it up with her personally.

“I am already old and retired, I cannot bear being harassed like this, ” she said, adding that she made a police report following the incident before going to MCA for help.
