Taking Post paid connection under our name for FDW

Postby kaisuparents » Tue Aug 16, 2016 2:16 pm

Hi,

My maid needs to take a post paid mobile plan, but if she registers under her FIN she has to pay 200$ refundable deposit. She is asking me to take it under my name and she will use it.
Has anyone does this before for their maids, do you foresee any problems with this.

Thanks

Have not done this and will not. If she runs up bills of thousands of dollars, the one whose name it's under will be liable to settle. I think it's better if you loan her the $200 with the precondition it's to be paid back upon her departure (and get that in writing).

Agreed, didn't think of that. I better give her 200$ deposit.

You maid doesn't NEED it. She merely WANTS it. What she wants she needs to be responsible for. You shouldn't be taking this risk and helping her solve all her WANTS.
