Dear Mr Lye (PAP branch),
I refer to our brief conversation last Sunday during your house visit which you asked to be emailed again concerning our 2 unresolved issues.
On the SSO side, I would like to inform you of the inflexibility and rudeness of their staff who always never fail to blame government policies for their failure to help those in need.
In their letter on 7 Apr, they stated it is due to fact that my single mother is able to single handedly purchase our flat from HDB and pay our monthly bills without any arrears, put me through tuition (with subsidies), my educational insurance as well as wanting us to drive our father up the wall by taking him to Court.
I would like to say that my father (who lives at Bedok Reservoir) is not having a good time either. My parents are divorced.
He approached the same SSO who told him they are unable to help as he is still ‘able’ to afford the rent. The RC there also refused to entertain his request for “ComCare” as a result.
Regarding the Cuffz Holdings problem, we have not heard from your lawyer.
Meanwhile, we learnt that the company has since changed its name to “Islandia” and continuing with their fradulent activities.
Their former staff, Mr Chan Wai Meng and another “M K Chin” proudly told my mother yesterday when she inquired about her monies that the government cannot do anything to them as there are no laws here governing investments or fixed deposit and that the government is on their side too, due to a given award “recognising” their “entrepreneurial” spirit.
I am really shocked beyond words and am wondering to myself when I come of age if such is the kind of society I will want when I enter the workforce.
Editor’s note: We have visited the family and provided them with our grocery pack. The family also has a primary school going autistic kid. We will be placing them on our regular grocery run in future. The PAP branch to their credit also delivered $100 NTUC voucher to the family.Number of View: 2340
