Recently, there were reports of missing thousand bills which was found by a Filipina in Hong Kong. Now, a Filipina domestic worker named Christchin S. Natividad came out and confessed that she lost money amounting to $5,000 and she was hoping that the money which was found by the other Filipina Herminihilda B. Molina was hers.
However, when the cousin of Natividad reached out to Molina to ask for more information about the money, she was disheartened after finding out that the money was only $4,000 and was found at the MTR station in Kowloon.
Despite that, the cousin of Natividad asked for her story to be publicized at The Sun HK, hoping that an honest man will return the hard-earned money of the OFW.
According to Isa, the cousin of Natividad said that she is not sure where she lost the money. The $5,000 missing money is part of her $6,000 salary that her employer gave her. It is said that the money was wrapped in tissue paper because her employer is hesitant to hold paper bills.
From the house of Natividad’s employer, she took a taxi to go to Hang Hau MTR station. She took a $1,000 bill from the money that’s still on the tissue paper and put the remaining $5,000 into her bag. When she reached the Hang Hau station, she met with her cousin Isa and they went to Central. They went to the World-Wide Plaza, shop at a clothing station, and dined in. All the while, Natividad was using the $1,000 that she previously got from the stash of money.
But when it was time for her to remit the $5,000 to her family in the Philippines, she realized that the money went missing. She went back to the places where she had gone but couldn’t find the money.
“Sa North Point MTR nagbukas po ako ng bag ko, kinuha ko po ang powerbank ko dahil naki charge po kasi ang pinsan ko. Tapos sa loob din po ng MTR nagbukas po ako ulit ng bag, kinuha ko naman ang phone ko,” says Natividad.
The missing money is weighing down on Natividad’s mind because she worked hard for it.
