In a truly bizarre event, some Yishun residents have been receiving harassment letters signed off by someone claiming to be the main antagonist of the Harry Potter series, Lord Voldemort.

A similar letter that was found in Clementi reveals that a moneylender who calls himself “Lord Voldermort” urges the addressee to harass people who owe him money. If they do not, “Lord Voldermort” will harass the addressee instead.

 

This letter gave the details of an individual who allegedly owed the moneylender thousands of dollars and who lives in the same block as the address. It stated:

“My name is Lord Voldermort. I am writing this mail to you because you and your family is about to face disturbing events soon.
“Please help me to urge him to pay me what I am supposed to get or I will start harassing YOUR unit.”

She also re-posted the following police advisory on her Facebook page:
