It is not only foreign domestic workers who are getting unsolicited SMSes from moneylenders (How do moneylenders get maids' numbers?, by Ms Lynn Chua Li-Ming; June 1).
I have received at least 10 such SMSes over the past couple of weeks, each offering to lend me money and stating their easy payment terms.
When I called one of them to ask where he got my number from, he said his boss gave it to him.
These SMSes are still coming in and I am wondering if I should report them to the police.
As a member of the pioneer generation, I am wondering how they got my number.
The only time I shared my phone number was when I filled up a form at a roadshow in a shopping mall to apply for a credit card.
I suspect someone could have given my number to moneylenders and it was passed on to others.
