cfm not clone i was so angry with her. I asked her again today why did she go lend the money? she didn't reply. I asked her where are the other maids who borrowed? She said some sent back to agent. Then those without agent she doesn't want to reply. Fuming! After reading all the advices, we decided not to pay too. But I live in fear loh. Changed my mobile no already.
i was reading that you planned to pay the licensed money lender...
and some ppl here also give you the wrong advise to pay the licensed money lender...

rule number 1.
if you didn't borrow the money... or become a guarantor ... why the hell are you even thinking to paying the license money lender.
do not pay anyone $$$....
else every known and unknown $$$ lender will know that you will pay something if they harass you enough...


the same stunt happen to my maid last year also...

first is 2 years ago... she say her father tio cancer and ask for $$$ advance from my wife...
we ask her to produce all the medical report and it seems real...
so my wife was kind enough to advance her about 2k for her to sent the $$$ back to piony land...

she did managed to repay all the money over the next few months...

after we renew her contract, she starting to ask for advance from my wife again... giving many reasons... as she managed to repay them last time...
my wife was kind enough to advance her pay...

this time round its greater than 2k in total...
and still keep on asking saying that she need to repay her urgent friend and i was kumgong to even go down ATM and transfer 300 to her friend...
she also say she did not borrow from ah long or money lender...

and my condition of transfer the 300 is that she need to work on sunday as a form to repay us since she own us more than 2k...

so that very sunday she was out... the following monday, my wife start to receive whatsapp message and call from money lender during work saying my maid borrow money from them...

we grill her that night and she confess that she borrow from money lender and not also own many friend money... each about a few hundred...

we jitao know the seriousness... with 2 primary skool kids... we straight away decide to sent her back...

the very next morning.. apply leave...

1. bring her to amk police station to make report. mata grill her and she ack that she actually own a few money lender..
2. her phone was also with a construction worker when mata call the number she gave... construction worker say she own 2k that why he retain her phone...

end up she at least own like 5 to 6k in total...

3. go home and ask her to pack her stuffs... even her luggage can lend to friend.. end up we spend a few $$$ buy those ah tiong big plaster bag for her to stuff her belonging.
4. bring her to maid agency....
5. spend another $500 to buy the evening air ticket
6. and finally sent her back the very day...

all in all, we lost near to 3k in total with this maid... that about 6 months of maid work...

my advice to all the ppl here who employ maid...
NEVER advance them a single cents...
even if their father or mother is going to die the very next day without the $$$....

after maid left..

we also went to SLS to check out the CCTV... what to buy...
in the end, i told my wife to monitor the situation first and see any action taken by ah loong or money lender...

the next few days, a few calls came in, all got block by my wife ... dun even bother to answer....
we always accompany our kids...
check our hdb areas for suspicious ppl
everyday, we were expecting paint splash when we reach home...

end up nothing, no paint, no runners, didn't even buy the CCTV and no further calls... i guess the own money is too small for each parties...

the only thing receive is a letter insert into our house door saying maid borrow $$$ own $600.... call this number to settle...
we just ignore it..

and after a few weeks, a registered letter addressed to our maid, we also ignore it...

after this, we naturally did not employ any maid currently....

so my advice here is to monitor the situation first...
no need to kan chiong like change mobile number, install CCTV, etc...
i know the fear, especially if you have young kids...
