Four vehicles in Johor were allegedly splashed with paint by unlicensed moneylenders after they were mistaken for the defaulter's vehicles

According to Harian Metro, 48-year-old Nazaruddin Bijan said his multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) Perodua Aruz was a victim of the attack.

The incident reportedly took place at Taman Tampoi Indah 2, Tampoi, Skudai in Johor Bahru on Tuesday, 30 November.

"My family and I live in a shophouse building nearby. I was aware of the incident at 3.15am after waking up when the child cried," he said.

"I then surveyed the situation outside the house before finding out that my Perodua Aruz was splashed with yellow paint."

He told the Malay daily when contacted that three other neighbour's vehicles — including a four-wheel drive — were also splashed with fresh paint.

He said "Owe money, pay money" was written on the note.

"Also on the note is a telephone number that can be contacted to discuss payment matters," he said

According to a photo that SAYS sighted on Facebook, the note is partially covered in paint and the phone number given has a Singapore country code.
