In a Facebook post by a concerned employer, Denise Han, you’ll see that the Singaporean mother expressed outrage at the amount their Filipina domestic helper paid for a phone screen protector in an alleged Lucky Plaza scam.

According to the Facebook post, her helper had gone to Lucky Plaza, which is also known sometimes as Little Philippines, to buy a phone screen protector at EZ Advance shop.

Here is the full text of Denise Han’s post (edited for clarity):

Must avoid EZ Advance Trading Enterprise at all costs!

This shop cheated our helper and ripped her off for $145 for a screen protector!

Our helper thought it’s $10 or $20 at most but the shop give invoice of $145 and pressurized our helper that everything is on CCTV and she has to pay up!

And my helper was afraid and did what they said.

Bloody disgusting shop! $145 is a lot of money for a domestic worker and they have to feed their entire family back home!

Shame on you #ezadvancetrading what can my helper do ???

Have you had a similar experience in Lucky Plaza? Or are you one of the blessedly lucky ones who always had good transactions? Let us know in the comments!
