FDH suspects fellow Pinay took her $4,000
A Filipino domestic worker sought the help of the police after she lost more than $4,000 in Statue Square in Central on Sunday (September 1).
Janet H. said she suspects a fellow Filipina in their hangout took her wallet and got away with her monthly salary of $4,410.
“Suspect ko kasama ko lang kasi doon lang nawala kung saan ako nakapuwesto,” Janet said.
She said the incident happened at around 10 a.m. while she was with her friends at their hangout in Statue Square, popularly known as “black man” among overseas Filipino workers.
“Pinahawak ko po sa friend ko yung bag ko tapos yung isang friend ko humingi ng $5. Doon ko nalaman na wala na wallet ko sa bag ko,” Janet said.
She said the friend who held her bag told her that she did not see any wallet inside the bag when she held it.
Janet added that she was not accusing the friend who held her bag since no one saw her take the wallet. Janet’s employer reported the incident to the police yesterday (September 2) and was already trying to obtain CCTV footage of the scene of the incident.
“Alam ko kinuha yung wallet ko at hindi nalaglag, at alam ko kilala mo ako,” Janet said, addressing her suspect whom she did not identify.
“Bibigyan kita ng tatlong araw na tawagan ako para humingi ka ng tawad or isauli ang nakuha mo sa akin. Pero kung hindi, pasensya na,” she said.
Janet said she would inform the suspect’s employer if her money is not returned to her.
“Kasi makikita sa CCTV ang mukha mo,” she said, adding that the suspect should call her at 60354790.
