Complaint >> Posted: Feb 21 ''17 by Nina in Rizal, Philippines
This person appears to be a scammer. She goes by the name Rizza. She contacted me via great aupair saying that she was interested in the nanny job. We originally agreed, after she provided her clearances to me and after interviewing her, that she would arrive on February 19. Before February 19, I sent her money for her bus fare from her hometown to Manila. After a few days, she asked for more money saying that she bought a ticket for an aircon bus as the non aircon bus was already full. She also lost her cellphone. I said the aircon bus was fine and seeing that I needed to contact her regularly sent her again money for the cellphone. On February 18, the date of her bus departure, she said she was already on the bus and would arrive February 19 at 10PM. I asked her whereabouts on February 19 to confirm her arrival time as we were going to fetch her from the bus terminal. I could not reach her cellphone. A few hours later she informed me she was stranded on the pier without any money and nothing to eat as she underestimated the fare. Seeing that it was already 8PM and I was worried for her safely, I again sent her money for the additional fare and food. It took her until the next morning to reply to say she had the money and the bus was to leave that day at 10PM and she would be arriving at 3PM the following day. At 3PM on Tuesday, Feb 21, I was trying to contact her. Up to now her cellphone can no longer be contacted. In total I sent her Php3,900. To me it is not the money but the fact that she was not honest and took advantage of my family in need of someone to look after my daughter. I am posting this so that some other families are not take advantage of by this person.
