    Beware of a house maid agencies at Chennai

    Hi All

    Beware of a maid agency called "Universal maid agency" situated at KKNagar Chennai.

    They promise to give maids for the working women. The young girl over there asked for the specifications of the maid and when i told, she asked me she will charge Rs.2000 for the maid, Rs.2000 + Rs.300 for the service charge for a year. I accepted for everything and paid Rs.2000+Rs.300 for a year and she also sent me a maid. This person supposed to be a maid, was so pretty , did all the work whatever i asked to at home and she stayed with us for a week. After that she told, she wishes to go to her brother's house. In a good will i sent her by giving the 9 days salary. Suddenly this person disappeared and never returned home. Once we asked the agency, they said, don't worry we will give one more servant and the agency told that they will give us a call back once they get another maid, and they never called me. Just for 9 days i gave away, Rs. 2000+Rs.300+Rs.250(auto charge for the agency to bring the maid to my house) and Rs600 for the 9 days salary for the maid. :cry:

    Now the agency is not at all giving back my Rs.2000 and nor a new servant also.

    Now, all my friends are saying, that it is a kind of trick played by these kind of agencies, to plant nice kind of females in houses as maids and revoke them after getting Rs.2000 from every house. I fell as a prey for this.

    Working women.....Please try to stand on your own legs, dont trust these agencies and get cheated up. :oops:

    Dont fall a prey

    Hi,
    It is always better to trust your neighbours and friends and the most your instinct in appointing a maid. Being a working women I think an extra help is always something which is good for both mental and physical wellbeing. So try to get some maid but avoid a full time maid but appoint someone who can come in the morning before leave for work and after you come back.

    Genuine Person For Home Needs

    Hi Friends,

    I am Preethi.

    I am married recently and live in chennai.

    My mother is all alone in the house.

    She is a working woman.

    I want someone permanently to take care of her in my absence like cooking for her, washing, cleaning and going out to the market / supermarket.

    I want somebody to be available in our house round the clock.

    Can anyone suggest me some address/telephone numbers of some service providers who organize genuine people to help my mother.

    If anybody knows people who are genuine and interested in staying along with my mother, kindly advise.

    It would be of great help to us.

    Please treat this as high priority and reply soon.

    Awaiting your replies.

    Luv

    Pree
