Billions of people worldwide use social media to share information and make connections.

On a personal level, social media allows you to communicate with friends and family, learn new things, develop your interests, and be entertained.

Nowadays, it could also mean the world knows if you are late in paying your debt.

A motorcycle shop in Seberang Takir, Terengganu, has come down hard on defaulters by posting an eye-popping list of borrowers and vehicle plate numbers.

It listed out more than 160 names of ‘debtors’ listed along with their model and amount of arrears. 

Among the motorcycle models popular among the ‘debtors’ are the Yamaha Y15ZR, the NVX, 135LC and Honda Beat.

The motorcycle shop made no effort to hide its disappointment.

There are some people who do not know how to thank us, when they have been given a good opportunity.

Importance Of Responsible Borrowing

Netizens sympathized with the motorcycle shop after seeing the Facebook post.

They feel the motorcycle shop deserves better as they had given out loans to help their customers. 

At the same time, netizens are indignant at the debtor and regard them as ungrateful for ‘disappearing’ without paying the loan.

Netizens also noted that the motorcycle shop had been very patient compared to typical financial institutions.

They demanded that the debtors clear the arrears as the shop had helped them get the desired motorbike.

Some added that in Islam, debt is an obligation that needs to be fulfilled.

Why Do People Borrow From The Shop And Not Banks?

Not everyone who works can produce a payslip or a bank statement to borrow from banks or third-party financial institutions. 

Some applicants are also unable to borrow because they have bad credit.

These people have to rely on dealer or ‘shop’ financing, a type of loan underwritten by a retailer for its customers.

The aim is to make borrowing quick and more accessible, but borrowers may not always get the best terms and conditions.

Some buyers even say dealerships are pushing them to borrow because they make more money that way.
