A mother of 5, Marina, shared how she withdrew $1.9k from an ATM and accidentally dropped it on her way home, and is desperately trying to find it.
She said that she went to the ATM at Ang Mo Kio Market and Food Centre on 31 July to withdraw the money she received from the Social Serivces Offices.
The money was financial aid that was given to her family.
She said that she put the money inside an envelope before placing it inside her bag, but when she reached home, she realised that the envelope was missing.
She said that she thinks she might have dropped the envelope of money while on her way back home, adding that she retraced her steps and went back to search for it everywhere for 3 hours but still couldn’t find it.
Marina expressed how stressed she feels because she is down to 60 cents in her bank account, and that the money was meant for her bills, food and her children’s school expenditures.
A police report has also been lodged and she is appealing to whoever who finds her envelope, to give it to the police.
