Paint, urine and faeces: More than 10 moneylenders island-wide hit by vandals overnight
Over 10 licensed moneylender outlets island-wide were hit by vandals overnight, who threw paint, urine and even faeces at the shops.
Many of the shops were also spray-painted with the word, ‘O$P$’ and police reports have been lodged, reports Lianhe Wanbao via Lianhe Zaobao.
It is understood that more than 10 shops were affected, including one stall each on French Road, Bishan Street 13, Cross Street, Toa Payoh Central, and another two at Ang Mo Kio Avenue 8.
Another owner said that the incident had shaken the industry, and there were also rumours that some shops had been vandalised with faeces and urine.
He added that the consensus was that illegal moneylenders were behind the acts of vandalism, who were upset that their business was being ‘stolen’ by their legal counterparts.
