Bisnis, BANDUNG — Rampant illegal online lending continues unabated and causing public concern, especially as these lenders can purportedly give out loans without the knowledge and consent of the victim by using stolen personal data.

Recently, the Financial Services Authority (OJK) highlighted complaints on illegal lenders using this modus operandi. In these cases, victims receive anonymous funds from lenders, and subsequently accrue debt with high interests.

“Complaint trends for illegal loans is that victims did not apply for a loan from the illegal lender, but money would suddenly enter their account. Shortly afterward, there would be an accumulation of high-interest debt,” said Friderica Widyasari Dewi, chief executive for behavioral supervisory of financial Business, education, and consumer protection at OJK in the July 2023 OJK Public Expose, quoted on Saturday (2/12/2023).
