Is moneylender legal in Malaysia ?

Bank Negara Malaysia does not issue money lending licences. Money lending business is governed under the Moneylenders Act 1951 and administered by the Ministry of Urban Wellbeing, Housing and Local Government(KPKT MALAYSIA).


Most of malaysia think moneylender is not legal in Malaysia because many SCAMMER and LOAN SHARK (ah long) keep advertising in social media like Google, Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, Twitter & etc. They keep showing fake moneylending license to some customer then those customer will apply loan from them.



First, scammer will ask you to pay upfront payment, deposit, processing fess & etc. After he received all the payment, mostly will blocked your phone number and you can’t find him back anymore. Otherwise they will have other excuse like they not received your payment and some transaction is missing. Scammer will not give any loan to you but he will collect some fees from you. If you really need money and try borrow from them, they still calling u to pay any fees to them. U feel logic ?



Second is LOAN SHARK. Some of the loan shark is even more excessive ! They will ask you to pay by Weekly or Daily.

I heard before their interest is around 30-40% per phase. If you loan from them RM1000 x 30% (DAILY) = RM300 (DAILY) just for the interest, RM300 is not included RM1000. If you have RM1000 then you just can clear your loan from them. If they ask you to pay WEEKLY RM1000 x 40% (WEEKLY) = RM400. You need to pay interest RM400 per week ! This is too expensive, 1 month u just get 1 time salary. If loan weekly you need pay 4 times a month. You think if you clear RM1000 they won’t find you back ? Most of the loan shark will also find u back if you clear their loan, they will say after clear the loan you still need to pay processing fees around 10-50% of the amount you borrow.
