We've been hunting for a Nepali maid forever. We got this guy's reference from 3 of our friends who don't know each other, so we were very hopeful he'll be trustworthy. He sent us a few profiles, we selected a lady who we thought would do well in our family. DH did the preliminary visa formalities but we had told Shan strictly that we will not be going ahead unless we speak to her on the phone and know that she understands Hindi or English. He assured us that she speaks Hindi well, but she will be able to talk to us only when she reaches Kathmandu from her village. Sure enough, he gave us a number to call today but when I tried talk talking to her we realised she doesn't speak any Hindi and obviously, is miles away from English. She started giggling over the phone which really annoyed me and gave the phone back to the Nepali agent (Shan's partner) who then tells me that she understands Hindi but cannot speak. We have decided to cancel her visa because I cannot add the pressure of teaching this lady a new language, along with other things that she will have to learn when she works with a new family, in a new, foreign country. This guy has assured us that he will find us a replacement, and even though he comes with references, I am really skeptical about him after this experience. Has anyone dealt with him? Would really like to hear some feedback if anyone has.

Hi Stovetop, so long as i know this Shan man is a fraud, a friend of mine hired her maid from him about a year ago and she absconded soon after the stamping was done....so my friend lost all the visa money & this man never too any onus for it...i was still on the mailing list of the guy so kept getting his weekly mailer,now this guy is not as smart as he thinks he is & he had emails sent to everyone so all could see who receives the emails, so i think its now about a month or so that i got an email from one of his customers complaining about his services i can send it to you if you like, basically the guy did a reply all so everyone on Shan's mailing list got this email. I would personally not hire from him knowing his reputation.

Stovetop, are you still looking for a maid? We got our brilliant Nepali houseboy from a lady called Sharmila. She works as a maid here in UAE and has a good network in her community. She's reliable and is recommended on this forum. I got her reference from here only. If you are still looking, I will post her number.

Would really like to hear some feedback if anyone has. Is this guy a registered business person or just some random who finds maids Would you not be worried he may do a runner with your money if not legitimate?

Thanks nams, I did speak to Sharmila but she didn't have anyone available locally. We have found a lady and she starts soon with us once her visa is done, let's hope it works out.
