Debt collectors come to Lim Tean office to demand reimbursement of S $ 4,905, all live – Mothership.SG


Five black-clad debt collectors showed up unexpectedly at the office of opposition lawyer and politician Lim Tean to demand repayment of money owed on behalf of a creditor.

The entire showdown was filmed and streamed live on Facebook on the Singapore Debt Collection Service (SDCS) page on September 21, which lasted over 18 minutes.

Need to pay more than S $ 4,905

The confrontation focused on sending the debt collectors to Lim’s office, Carson Law Chambers, to seek reimbursement of more than S $ 4,905.

Did not reveal who was facing

The video of the debt collectors was featured by a man, whose nickname is Justice Boy, who initially did not disclose who they were visiting.

But he teased the possibility that it was a famous personality.

In the introduction to the video, Judge Boy said, “Today we have a really big execution lah ok it’s against this guy ok… you don’t all get shocked who the debtor is . Today we are going to pay a visit to his office. “

“And we’ll ask him for the payment. It’s not a big amount but it’s a matter of principle. And this guy, I think you all will know who he is.”

SDCS had already caused a stir when they showed up to Jewel Changi in April 2021 to ask for Naiise’s refund.

Walking towards Lim’s office, Judge Boy said, “We have all the black and white documents with us.”

“The amount is about four thousand dollars more.”

“This person everyone will definitely know.”

“You will all be shocked.”

The confrontation

About 7 minutes and 40 seconds into the live video, the debt collectors showed up at Lim’s office.

Lim greeted the debt collectors at the door.

He said in a thunderous voice, “Very good afternoon to you.

The conversation quickly turned sour when he was told to pay the money owed on the spot and a court order was issued against him.

Lim seemed to have been taken aback by the team’s visit.

Lim then waved to the debt collectors and the two parties started talking to each other.

But we could see Lim walk away from the group, after repeating that he wouldn’t pay and that he would sort it out with the other party.

Debt Collector Refutes Lim

This led to one of the debt collectors confronting Lim.

Lim retorted, “I don’t want to entertain you.”

The debt collector replied, “You provide a service to the public, we also provide a service to the public. What is the difference ? “

Lim was no longer seen in the video after this point.

Another man, who is said to be an employee of the law firm, has resumed negotiations.

Entrance office

Afterwards, debt collectors were invited to enter the office as the group’s presence was evident as they stood in the hallway.

In the office, debt collectors showed the court order document on camera.

Judge Boy then remarked about this case: “Everything is documented, we have black and white. Imagine lah, just a judgment order against you when you are working in court. It’s very funny.”

Judge Boy also said his team visited two other addresses where Lim is believed to have resided, but these were rental locations.

The debt collector claimed Lim moved out before he could reach him.

Judge Boy also seemed unfazed that the law firm employee could file a police report.

He said: “I don’t know what they’re doing, maybe they want to call the police, but it’s okay, we’re legal, we’re not doing anything wrong.”

Check issued

At the end of the video, about 10 minutes later, a check was drawn and turned over to the debt collectors.

When debt collectors explained how they would return to the office if the cash check was bounced, the law clerk interrupted them and said, “It will never bounce back.”

Here’s a breakdown of the video’s highlights.
