The shop appeared empty, its opaque glass doors firmly locked. Above the door is a dark blue sign with yellow lettering which says: Advance Credit.
The New Paper understands that the company, located on the fifth floor of Bukit Timah Shopping Centre, was one of 13 premises raided by police officers in a massive 12-hour anti-loan sharking operation that ended yesterday morning.
Officers arrested 21 men and two women, all Singaporeans between 19 and 43 years old. The police said that this is the largest number of people nabbed in the last three years in an anti-loan sharking operation.
Shopkeepers in nearby units told TNP that they do not know anybody working in the Advance Credit office.
Mr Vincent Lim, 29, who works in a unit next door, claimed that he has never seen anyone enter or exit the office.
