    So... My maid kinda scammed us?

    Last year we had this maid, who was pretty epic.

    A month after she left she began messaging my mom about how she had "dengue malaria" (she's foreign) and how she was "coughing blood". My mom sent her money for treatment. Long story short, my mom sent her around $3000 along the course of a few months. That's a lot for us.

    Then, our new current maid began receiving messages from the old maid on Facebook about how we loved her more than the new one. I took a look at the old maid's Facebook account. It was really funny. The entire period where she said she was sick, she had photos where she was out partying with her boyfriend and making food and other shit.

    So... she pretty much scammed us of $3000 (of which $500 was mind). lol

    I tried messaging her on Facebook and confronted her, she didn't reply.

    So... legally, is there anything I can do? I mean, we never had an agreement where she would have to return the money or anything like that. Is there any way I can, idk, get her location through Facebook or something? Maybe threaten her with a police complaint? I don't even know. btw she sucks at English and isn't replying to anything I say.

    Can someone think of anything that may help, even a little bit? (I don't mind doing anything immoral or unethical, just not something illegal.) Just post your ideas below, what would you do if you were me?

    I don't think there is a way to legally get your money back without legal documentation (proof) of said money being given to your maid.

    Why would you send your maid money for an illness anyways? I would've just gotten a new maid, you don't give someone money that you in the first place pay money to to clean especially when they aren't even cleaning in the first place because they're "sick".

    Oh no, she was like a part of our family and worked pretty well. She only fell "sick" a month after she stopped working for us.

    Also, we have all the Western Union transfer transactions

    Depending on your home countries laws this may fall under fraud and could be considered a serious crime (Prison time)

    Still got the text message?
    Save those messages as evidence. Print out transactions of money sent. File a court case that you are trying to get the money back.
    Do not be sad about it. If she "used" your long term relationship by lying to get money, she deserves to go to court.

    Screenshot Facebook pictures. Have another picture with you and a computer on her Facebook showing her pictures.
    I think she is committing fraud by saying she has malaria.

    She could've asked instead of lying.

    Best course of action.

    + Make sure everyone knows she's a scammer.

    Why would you ever pay someone 3,000 dollars for being sick in the first place? It's their own fault if they get sick and it's also their fault of they don't have health insurance... Also, good luck getting her to come to small claims court if you can even manage to get enough proof to form a case against her. I've had more than that stolen from me (not given) and it's never been resolved to this day.

    If she's never coming back to the country you're in, i don't think it's ever possible for you to get your money back.
