A Singaporean family is urgently seeking help in locating their maid after she abandoned them following a disturbing revelation about her involvement with unlicensed money lenders. The family has made a police report, terminated her work permit, and is urging the public to be vigilant.
The distressing incident unfolded when Maemanah confessed to the employer that she had been borrowing money from unlicensed money lenders.
The lenders began harassing her, eventually reaching out to the family directly and threatening severe consequences unless the full repayment of $3950 was made immediately.
Family paid the loan sharks, maid ran away
Concerned for the safety of their children, the family decided to pay off the full amount, hoping to arrange an installment plan using Maemanah’s future wages.
However, the situation took a shocking turn when, during the employer’s absence at work and the children at school, Maemanah absconded with her passport, stolen from a locked drawer.
Upon returning home, the family discovered the missing helper, leaving their children alone. A police report has been filed, and Maemanah’s work permit has been terminated. The family is now appealing for public assistance to locate Maemanah and bring her to justice.
What the family said
Urgent help to look out for my ungrateful helper, Maemanah, who has placed me and my family in great predicament.
Last night, she confessed to me that she has been borrowing money from unlicensed money lenders who is now harassing her for full repayment.
I didn’t know about this until they started to contact me directly and threatening me to use harsh means unless she makes the full repayment on the spot.
Yes i was upset, but the thought of my boys’ safety comes first, so we paid off her full amount of debt plus interests which amounted to $3950.
We thought we could come up with an instalment plan where her pay could be offset in the next few months. Our heart was still THAT forgiving.
And today, while i was at work and my boys were in school, she ran off with her passport stolen from my locked drawer. Used a kitchen knife to jack the drawer up, and ran off with two luggages packed with her clothes.
My poor boys had to come home to no one and i had to rush home from work. Thankful for my understanding RO and Principal.
I have since lodged a police report and terminated her work permit. Pls make this viral, i seek all the help from friends and families to help bring this ingrate to justice.
We have been very kind to her, even giving her advances in her pay when she needed money to fund family matters back home.
She thrives on people’s kindness and expect others to give in to her to support her in all ways, so if you do see her around especially in Punggol, pls dm me so i can inform the 10.
