I realised yesterday (18/12/17) that the above mentioned Church has demanded my parents to donate, and if that’s not possible, give them a loan of a huge sum of money to raise $12 Million SGD (equivalent to 9 million USD) or part thereof to “rebuild the church”.
They attempted to convince my parents to take out their retirement savings for this purpose. And I believed that they are doing the same to a few other members.
The church building, in the first place, is relatively new. And even if they need to revamp, $200,000 should suffice for such a small church with only 100+ active members.
Actions taken so far: I’ve made a police report on 18/12/17 and the assigned investigation officer from Tanglin Police Station (Singapore) is in the midst of delving deeper into this case (I’ve attached the police report and I would like this report to remain confidential)
