Only 15 yrs old but he aready owed thousands to loan sharks

A 15-year-old boy is among 409 borrowers of loans from Ah Long (loan sharks) whose cases have been referred to the MCA Public Complaints Bureau this year.

Bureau chief Datuk Micheal Chong said Monday that although cases of young people borrowing from Ah Long were isolated, the problem should be viewed seriously to prevent more from getting trapped in Ah Long loans.

It is understood that the teenager, who is from here, had borrowed more than RM10,000 from Ah Longs to indulge in online gambling.
