I sent the police an email telling them all that had happened, in Malay, no less. I haven't heard back from them.

Elaine - you yourself called it ....."greed."

You are an intelligent person. Why didn't the alarm bells ring re the phones?

As I understand it, the points were worth about a packet of gum. I would liken it to wasting your money on 1/2 small McD's French Fries.

"She tricked me into 2 ponzi schemes."

If that had happened to me, I would have immediately reported that person to the police !!

Did you talk to the local police ? Gosh, tell them what happened so that woman doesn't scam more people ! Those poor maids. They don't make much money and now they have even less because they believed her too.

She's a common thief ! Report her to the police immediately !!

Here is what I live by: if something looks too good to be true it usually is, and there is no way to get rich quick, except by hard work.

I would consider this a lesson in life - and no, you dad should not replace the money YOU decided to "invest".

If you can not afford to loose money in investments, then you should not gamble with it. The risk is too high.

The red flag learning from this, when someone says don't tell anyone or your parents, run away.

Be glad you didn't lose more, call this a lesson learned.

Sorry to hear of this hard lesson.

She tricked me into 2 ponzi schemes.

The 1st one was called 1whp (1 world hand phone). I did get some cash back but I was greedy and ended up losing my capital. She told me to buy 10 sim cards and fake data of 10 ppl in order to advance to the next level, then the company folded up and everyone who invested lost everything!

Then she persuaded me to invest in a cryptocurrency called OneCoin. She said she will pay half my startup fee but she again tricked me. She even told me not to tell my parents. She said it was a sure thing. That I will surely get back what I lost in the 1st scheme. But again this is a bogus company selling "courses" & parties & events in Macau & Dubai and everyone who put money into this lost everythg.

You can google these 2 schemes to find out more. Well, my neighbor only wanted the commissions so she pulled more & more ppl in. She didn't care about us at all! She just wanted to boost her commissions!

She also kept trying to convert me to Islam. I in turn tried to show her the love of Christ but she ended our friendship the moment I said I wanted my money back!

She even tricked all the foreign maids in our neighborhood into investing in these schemes. My parents kept telling me not to keep visiting her, to end my association with her. I shld have listened. From now on, I will be absolutely transparent with my parents.

Elaine,

How did your neighbor con you out of that money ? Keeping in mind that you did freely give her the money based on whatever she told you she could get you.

In order to offer some advice, we need the complete story. not bits and pieces.

Be honest.

What happened ?

that is worth money?

I lost a bit of money today, and I am NOT happy!!!

The staff handling the transaction just wouldn't or can't help me recover my points!

I am still pissed over it!!!

But what I am especially upset about is the money I lost because a neighbor cheated me!!! My Dad offered to pay me back half of what I lost but I don't feel right taking his money when I was the one who made the mistake of trusting that con woman!!!
