The police raided one of the illegal online loan offices (pinjol) in the Kelapa Gading area, North Jakarta. Police arrested 4 people in the raid.
Dirreskrimsus Polda Metro Jaya Kombes Auliansyah Lubis directly led the raid. He also had time to see firsthand how the employees collect to make residents trapped in octopus pinjol with the amount of debt that is getting bigger.
“If he (the customer) cannot pay the current online loan, he is directed to be able to borrow from another loan or vendor,” said the Director of Special Criminal Investigation, Kombes. Pol. Auliansyah Lubis was quoted from the Polda Metro Jaya Instagram, Wednesday (20/10). Berita Terkini
According to him it was a ploy from the pinjol. The reason is that if we investigate further, these vendors are still the same company as the illegal online loans.
“Directed to the new vendor, that’s them too. Or you could say it’s an octopus,” added Auliansyah.
This is one of the reasons why the debts of these customers have swelled due to online loans. For that, Auliansyah advised to be more careful when you want to make an online loan. Berita Politik
