I lent about $20K to a girl known from wechat and she mentioned will return to me. However she went missing. I made a police report as I felt it is a scam. How can I retrieve back the money? I have the bank account number and mobile number. Please advise.

    You would have to first ascertain her identity. You can do so by way of a Court application to the bank or the tel-co company to ascertain her identity. After you ascertain her identity, you can file a claim against her in the Magistrate Court for the monies. However, there is no guarantee that you will be able to recover the monies unless she is resident in Singapore and she has assets.
