wrong .. (got cha .. )
Once you have filed a court hearing, and over with it .. the IPTO office will do the advertising, with their regular 'broadcasts'
For the banks, and other creditors, all you have to do, if they call/email/mail/send a debt collector - tell them to contact the OA AFTER THE HEARING DATE, and STOP BOTHERING YOU !!!
btw, some banks will try to be nice and tell you "well, the hearing is not dont yet right ? You can still pay some amount in the meantime " etc. etc.
Now, if you are in the deep, tell them thanks, but no thanks .. after all, making a bit of payment will not mean the banks are gonna let you off anyway ..
As per Singapore law, if the creditor wants to sue you or cry unfair after the case has been filed, too bad .. they fly the biggest kites they can find ..
